Hello Outlook 2010 Beta users!
We have heard from some of you that you are running into an issue with large e-mail message sizes in the Outlook 2010 Beta. We want to update you on the status of this issue. There is a known bug in the Outlook 2010 Beta where the usage of number and bullet lists causes redundant CSS definitions to be included in each outgoing message. The outgoing message might not display correctly in a mail service where there is a limit to message size, such as Gmail, BlackBerry e-mail, or Craigslist.
Restarting Outlook removes all the extra CSS for new outgoing messages, although you might see remnants of this bug when responding to a message that was already inflated.
If you use number and bullet lists, close Outlook at the end of each day, and your new outgoing messages will return to their normal size. This bug has been fixed in later Outlook 2010 builds.
We hope you are enjoying the Beta!

Microsoft Outlook 2010 : Issue with message sizes in Outlook 2010 Beta
Do you use Outlook Notes like I do, but are frustrated that Microsoft didn’t include the ability to synch your Notes with Exchange?
Here’s a utility/app that should help minimize your frustrations:
PIFEM uses the out of the box Outlook 2007 features of flagging and categories to manage emails that you don't want to action/complete immediately. Once you date/time flag an item it is no longer clogging up your brain with secondary thoughts. If you manage it well… you can eliminate a lot of distractions from email, and focus on your highest priority items with laser focus.

I’ve been waiting for this feature (as I’m sure most have) since Outlook was introduced. When you shut down Outlook, it never really shuts down – or takes a long, long time to do so. The Outlook.exe process just sits and eats memory for eons, it seems.
SP2 for Outlook 2007 will finally fix this (fingers crossed).
With Microsoft Office Outlook Connector, you can use Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 to access and manage your Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail or Microsoft Office Live Mail accounts, including e-mail messages, contacts and calendars for free!
Outlook Connector enables you to use your Live Hotmail accounts within Outlook:
- Read and send your Office Live Mail/Windows Live Hotmail e-mail messages.
- Manage your contacts in Windows Live Hotmail.
- Use advanced options for blocking junk e-mail messages.
- Manage multiple e-mail accounts in one place.
- Manage, and synchronize multiple calendars, including shared calendars to Windows Live Calendar from Outlook.
They have really let me down.
In addition, these emails are ending up in my Inbox for some reason. Has MS Outlook 2007’s Junk Filter stopped working?
Looking further into my online email settings for RoadRunner, it appears the Junk Email options have changed. *I* didn’t make the change.
Hmmm…this I didn’t expect. When you add a web slice to IE8, it also adds a new feed to MS Outlook (if you are using Outlook to read RSS feeds).
It also appears (and, I’m double-checking this) that installing IE8 also changes the update frequency of your feeds in Outlook. If so, that’s not good.
Can anyone else confirm this?
