Subject: Welcome to Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

Thank you for using Microsoft® Office Outlook® 2003! This version of
Outlook includes new capabilities designed to help you access, prioritize,
and act on communications and information so that you may use your time more
efficiently and more easily manage the ever-increasing flow of incoming

To give you some idea of what is possible with Outlook 2003, we have
put together a list of our favorite new features.

Streamlined Mail Experience - Outlook helps you read, organize,
follow-up, and find e-mail messages more efficiently than before. The new
window layout displays more information on the screen at one time, even on
smaller monitors. The list of messages has been redesigned to use space more
intelligently; as a result, you will spend less time scrolling and more time
getting your work done. Automatic grouping of your messages helps you find
and go to e-mail messages anywhere in the list more quickly than before; you
can even move or delete all messages in a group at once!

Junk E-mail Filter - The new Junk E-mail Filter helps prevent much
of the unwanted e-mail that you receive every day. It uses state-of-the-art
technology developed by Microsoft Research to evaluate whether a message
should be treated as junk e-mail based on several factors, such as the time
it was sent and the content of the message. The filter does not single out
any particular sender or type of e-mail; it is based on the content of the
message in general and uses advanced analysis of the structure of the
message to determine the probability that it is junk e-mail. Any message
that is caught by the filter is moved to your Junk E-mail folder, where it
can be retrieved or reviewed at a later time. You can add e-mail addresses
to your Safe Senders List to ensure that messages from these senders will
never be treated as junk e-mail and block messages from certain e-mail
addresses or domain names by adding the sender to your Blocked Senders List.

Navigation Pane - The Navigation Pane is more than a simple list of
folders: It combines the main navigation and sharing features of Outlook
into one, easy-to-use place. In Mail, you will see more mail folders than
before, and you can add your favorite folders to the top of the list. In
Calendar, you can view other people's shared calendars side-by-side with
your own Calendar. In Contacts, you will see the list of all contacts
folders you can open - whether stored on your computer or on a network
location, as well as improved ways to view your contacts. All eight of the
Outlook modules have a user interface designed to help you quickly see what
you are looking for, in the way that you like to see it.

Reading Pane - The Reading Pane is a great place to read e-mail
messages without needing to open a separate window for each message. Like a
piece of paper, the Reading Pane is laid out vertically. This layout is
easier on your eyes and, together with the new multi-line message list,
means that you can see nearly twice as much of an e-mail message on the same
size monitor as compared to the Preview Pane in earlier versions of Outlook.

Quick Flags - If you need to respond to an e-mail message but you
don't have the time now, you can click on the flag icon next to it to mark
it with a Quick Flag. Multiple colored flags make it easy to categorize your
messages. The folder named "For Follow Up" always contains an up-to-date
list of all Quick Flagged messages in every folder in your mailbox.

Arrange By Conversation - If you receive many e-mail messages daily,
you could benefit from a grouping option called Arrange By Conversation.
Arrange By Conversation view shows your message list in a
conversation-oriented or "threaded" view. To help you read your e-mail
messages as quickly as possible, the Arrange By Conversation view displays
only unread and Quick Flagged messages at first. Each conversation can be
expanded further to show all messages in the conversation, including
messages you have already read. To arrange your messages this way, click
Arrange By Conversation on the View menu.

Search Folders - Search Folders contain constantly-updated search
results of all e-mail items matching specific search criteria. You can see
all the unread e-mail messages from every folder in your mailbox in a Search
Folder named "Unread Mail." To help you reduce the size of your mailbox, the
"Large Mail" Search Folder shows you the largest mail in your mailbox,
regardless of what folder the messages are stored in. You can also create
your own Search Folders: Choose from a list of pre-defined templates or
create a search with custom criteria and save it as a Search Folder for
future use.

Side-by-Side Calendars - You can now view multiple calendars
side-by-side inside of the Outlook Calendar window. All calendars can be
seen side-by-side: local calendars, public folder calendars, other users'
calendars, or Microsoft Windows® SharePointT Services team event lists. The
calendars are color-coded to help you tell them apart.

Rules and Alerts - Outlook will alert you when new e-mail messages
arrive in your Inbox by displaying a subtle notification on your desktop,
even when you're using another program. You can quickly create rules to file
e-mail based on the message by selecting the message and clicking Create

Cached Exchange Mode - If you use Microsoft Exchange Server you no
longer have to worry about problems caused by slow or far-away networks.
Outlook can download your mailbox to your computer, reducing the need to
communicate with the e-mail server. If the network becomes unavailable,
Outlook will keep using the information it has already downloaded - and you
might not even realize the network is gone! Outlook adapts to the type of
network available, downloading more e-mail items over faster networks and
giving you more control over what is downloaded over slower networks. If you
use Outlook 2003 with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, you will benefit from
a significant reduction in network traffic, helping you get to your
information faster.

And Much More - There are many more additional improvements and new
features in Outlook 2003 that we didn't have space to describe here,
including improvements to AutoSuggest addressing, Meetings Workspaces, Live
Attachments, the resizable Address Book, Contact Pictures, Distribution List
expansion, Alerts, the Current Time Indicator, privacy and performance
enhancements, data files larger than 2 gigabytes (GB), full Unicode support,
usability improvements throughout the product, online training for Outlook
available on the Microsoft Office Online Web site, and more.

We hope that you will find this to be the best version of Outlook yet!
