Outlook 2010 Improvements

Microsoft Outlook, formerly Microsoft Office Outlook, is a personal information manager from Microsoft, available both as a separate application as well as a part of the Microsoft Office suite. The current version is Microsoft Outlook 2010 for Windows. Although often used mainly as an e-mail application, it also includes a Calendar, Task Manager, Contact Manager, note taking, a journal and web browsing.
The following section summarizes the Improved in Outlook 2010 with Exchange Server 2010

Greater calendar reliability: Improvements in Outlook 2010 and Exchange Server 2010 logic make calendars more reliable than in Office Outlook 2007. Improvements include conflict resolution in online mode to resolve conflicts when there are different updated versions of an item on the server and on the client. Also, multiple instances of a recurring meeting can now be changed independently of one another.

Exchange Server 2010 introduces the Calendar Repair Assistant (CRA). CRA can automatically detect and correct inconsistencies that occur for single and recurring meeting items for mailboxes that are on an Exchange Server 2010 mailbox on which the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Assistants service runs.

Improved retention and compliance functionality: Users can apply retention policy to a message or a folder. IT can enforce policies on built-in folders (Inbox, sent items, and so on). Also, an online archive provides separate, online-only folders for long-term retention and archiving.

Simplified administration: By using role-based access control (RBAC), you can control resources and the features that users can access. You create role assignment policies for each specialized user group and tailor those role assignment policies to grant more-restrictive or less-restrictive permissions to the groups. For example, you could create a Compliance Offer role to conduct mailbox searches for legal discovery, a Human Resources role to update employee information in the company directory, or a Help Desk role to manage mailbox quotas. Users can also manage some tasks on their own, such as creating and managing distribution groups or tracking message delivery.
