Outlook 2010 E-mail Productivity Features

Microsoft has been giving us sneak peeks at the new Outlook (and the rest of Office) 2010 over the past several months. Recently they released this video that gives as an even closer look under the hood. It hints about some very cool features that can streamline your e-mail management.

The mail management features that look very promising, but the one that has me really excited is are the “Quick Steps” function. Quick Steps appear to be like actions or macros that give you the ability to record common processes that involve multiple steps. By having a one-click method to convert e-mails to tasks, appointments and contacts your routine processing will go much faster.

Of course as of today 2010 is still vaporware. The beta version is supposed to be available in early November. I plan to begin using it on a test machine right away to get started on the Outlook 2010 eCourse.

If you know of any other 2010 features, official or rumors, please share them in the comments.
