  • It adds RSS but does it add newsgroups (NNTP)?
     
    Will it, or can I import my PST file?

    Can it "Save as web page" your calender in an automated fashion (e.g. Every time you exit Outlook)? Answered but don't like the answer I got.

    Have they removed "Plain Text" from the Outlook editor? Does it only support HTML messages now?
  • RowanRowan Look, no errors.
    Have they removed the problems relating to this yet?
  • It's about time we get some infos on Outlook 2007! Word and Excel have been stealing the show for far too long!

    Can't wait for the download to complete!

    Thanks!

    Scoble gets all the good interviews...poor chazz.

    Good to see the ribbon implemented here as well.

    Loving Office 2007 so far. Smiley

  • Sven GrootSven Groot Don't worry... I'm a doctor.
    I'm about three minutes into the video, so it may be answered in there, but: is IMAP support improved. In Outlook 2003, a lot of stuff just doesn't work with an IMAP account. You don't get the toaster popups when you receive new mail, if people send you tasks or appointments per e-mail they don't work on an IMAP account, and a few other things.

    I would greatly appreciate seeing all (or at least some of) that stuff fixed.
  • Hey scoble, you mentioned your boss suddenly in the conversation. Who is your boss anyway?

    Interesting, how do you see whether your banned or not. I also made a sexist remark about a person in a video once and my post was removed. It was the video on code snippets in visual studio. Could it be I am banned then?
  • scobleizerscobleizer I'm the video guy
    I usually just delete posts that are sexist. Smiley
  • In the video they showed that you can open native Office documents inside Outlook without much fanfare to see if its something you need to act upon. This might be a silly question (and I'm not a beta tester), but couldn't they add to Outlook to where it reads the metadata of the file so you can see how many pages are actually in it? Its nice to see you can open it in Outlook, but file size can be deceiving.
  • scobleizer wrote:

    My first post and its about this (oh crap).. How is it that "X is hot" comments are sexist?

    "Sexism is discrimination against people based on their sex rather than their individual merits."

    The comments are at worst a very tacky way of saying an individual is attractive but should be seen as a complement. That said, they should be deleted because it's all about the technology right? So I promise my next post will be about the technology. Smiley

    Its still discrimination just positive discrimination

    There's no such thing... Positive discrimination means you are negatively discriminating against someone else.
  • scobleizerscobleizer I'm the video guy
    It violates my living room rule. It's rude and not polite. And, yes, it is discriminatory cause I don't see you treating the men here that way. It sends a message that you're only interested in women's bodies, not their minds. We as an industry have a tough enough time trying to get women interested in geekier fields, so I'm pretty senstitive to this kind of behavior.

    What if Amanda Congdon said you were hot?  Would it have been more appropriate if Beer28 had said she's both hot and smart?  If it's any consolation, she clearly had a detailed knowledge of the product.
  • Replicate alot of the functionality of Outlook 2007 into OWA and that'll totally rock!!

    Being able to access all your mail/calendar/contact information from a browser is totally flexible and useful.

    Obviously not everything can be done in the browser, alot can be done though.

    Great video Smiley
  • OK this post is wildly off-topic and has nothing to do with the video (Feel free to remove it if it is too inappropriate - I don't mind).

    Smart women are far hotter than hot women (did that make any sense?), geek girls (and game girls) too. None of which has anything to do with the comments made here.

    We are not posting on some gaming site, or other "boys club" and although C9 isn't exactly an internal forum there should be some level of peer respect. Even if you think a thought about the professional in the video (male or female) it really isn't necessary to post about it.

    Apart from the fact it adds nothing positive to the discussion, it also is disrespectful to anyone who is trying to make a 'serious' point.

    It is almost like saying -- "Shut-up and dance for daddy." -- It shows that level of disrespect in my opinion.

  • erikerik_ Whooops!
    Nice, can't wait to use it!

    The 'jessica on vacation' on the calender at the sharepoint server, is it planned to get this like 'ajax style' so you see it updating while reading the calender? So I know it at the moment it is set and don't need to refresh to see if she is availible at a timeblock.

    What happends when I send a calender outside (the non outlook users part), with the html calender true email, does it gets updated in some way? So when I retrieve the html calender and read the invitation 2 days later, I am able to pick a time which is actually still availible. And not need to pick a few before I am able to have a free slot.

    Like if I was your client and you send me one of those mails, and for some reason I am not able to respond directly. When I got the time to read mail, I expect you send me the thing with the current state. It comming true a dynamic channel not true a static (paper) channel.

    I see a tabletPC in the background, are there any improvements specialy for the tablet?

  • I too want to ask if there will be newsgroups support. Currently, our choice of using Outlook Express is extremely outdated and in any case, why doesn't Office Outlook have native support for newsgroups yet? It has been 10 years now and this feature seems not even to have been considered. Newsgroups offer a wealth of support information and it is time that this valuable resource could be accessed through a fast desktop program and not only through Google.
  • Robert - thanks for asking about ClearContext in the video.  I'm very excited about the new functionality Outlook 2007 provides and the opportunities we will have to build and extend on it.  FYI - we mention some of the Outlook 2007-focused features we’re working on for our Made for Office 2007 version in this blog post - http://blog.clearcontext.com/2006/04/theres_no_rest_.html . We’ll be talking more about ClearContext for Outlook 2007 in another post shortly after the O'07 B2 release.

    Wrong. Positive discrimination means exactly that: Positively discriminating against someone.

    To discriminate it doesn't have to be negative. Look at the following:

  • Looks really nice, but am prefering Mozilla Thunderbird or evolution since there is no Linux version of Outlook.
    Mozilla Thunderbird 2 will be the Ultimate Hit i promise you, and a hard competition for Outlook Tongue Out!!!

    Cool video. I did a whole restructure on my e-mails while watching the video. Jessica is very cool!! I like how she is explaining stuff. Very clear and easy to understand. Great!

    Robert has provide a great service to any Outlook 2003 user by mentioning ClearContext!!

    I went straight out and googled it, sorry msn'd for it. Wink

    Install was very quick and simple and straight away found it to be a tool that assists you to keep track of all the communications and priorities your inbox.

    Brad, simply a great tool!

    Keep it up Big Smile
  • Have they fixed IMAP through SSL problems?

    In all older versions of Outlook when you have a lot of folders with a lot of messages, switching between those folders hangs Outlook sometimes. I have this on 2 PCs of mine, also on my clients PCs. If you configure IMAP without SSL it is ok, though.
  • Office 2007 Beta 2 is now available for download here.  Looking good!

    This stopped being a complaint for me the day off.ramp ceased being offered via NNTP. Perplexed

    If I were to keep up with Usenet, I think I'd use Google Groups to create an RSS feed and watch it in Outlook 2007.

    No, it's not the way OE does newgroups, but I sure have gotten used to RSS feeds as a way to keep me aware of an unbelieveable amount of information across an embarrassing number of topics.

    Think I'll give this a shot to see how well that works.

  • Well, hoping that Office 12 takes up less space than the video advertising it, I'll be here a while.
  • So for those of us sentenced to work in an environment which uses Lotus Notes for Email,  will there be MAPI support for Outlook 2007?

    I installed Beta 2, and unfortunately the Domino Connector from Office 2003 does not like to work with 2007. Sad

    I don't see Notes listed as a possible MAPI provider in the App config.

    I know it's beta, so I'm not surprised, but curious if there is something in the works Smiley
  • Slick looking program!

    Questions:

    1.   Do you need the full Office suite to use the benefits like previewing PowerPoint slides or Excel spreadsheets sent as an attachement?

    (Seeing one can get PPT viewer and so on, would be a neat feature if this is built into Outlook without buying the program)

    2.  Do you need Office 2007 or can you still use Office XP say and buy Outlook 2007 seperately?

    3.  If yes, will you have two Outlooks on your machine (XP/2007)?

    cheers
    Tom
