Microsoft shares March Madness calendar for Outlook users

March Madness pools have always been popular in the workplace. And since a lot of those workplaces are using Microsoft as the default email application, it makes sense for Microsoft to post a shared Outlook calendar which lists all the NCAA tournament action. Just head over to the Office add-ons site and download the March Madness calendar for Outlook, click the Subscribe button, and click...

Want a quick way to add some pre-defined text to your Microsoft Outlook email messages? Text Lightning is a slick, free add-in which makes it easy to drop in custom signatures or any other boilerplate verbage you need fast access to.

Move Outlook notes to Evernote easily with a free script

Microsoft Outlook lets you export your notes, but your file type choices are pretty limited. The same can be said for Evernote's import feature, which only handles its own export files or Microsoft OneNote 2007 or newer. Thankfully, a gent named Richard was kind enough to point us toward a script he created to make moving notes from Outlook to Evernote as easy as possible. Download his...

Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac now available

Microsoft has officially released the retail version of Office 2011 for Mac. This update to the popular software suite includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Messenger, and adds Outlook to the Mac version of Office for the first time. Microsoft's cloud focus is evident in Office 2011, with Office Web app integration, cloud storage via Skydrive and networked file sharing with SharePoint. Design nerds...

Google Calendar sync now (mostly) works with Outlook 2010

Using Outlook 2010 and wish you had an easy way to keep it in sync with your Google Calendar? Good news! Google has just released an updated version of Google Calendar Sync which works with the latest version of Microsoft's enterprise workhorse... well, mostly anyways. Sync only works with 32-bit installs of Outlook 2010, though to be fair even Microsoft recommended that users roll with that...

Figures show Google Gmail and Docs destroying Outlook's market share. Next victim: Excel

Those ingenious folks over at RescueTime have compiled another fantastic set of statistics -- last time it was how much money the Google Pac-Man homage cost the world, and today it's some damning graphs of just how much market share Gmail and Docs are gaining at the expense of Microsoft's Office suite. Last year, Outlook lost almost 6% of its users, while Gmail gained 3%. Google Calendar shows...

UnDBX extracts email messages from Outlook Express data files

Yes, I know it's hard to believe that there are still people using Outlook Express in the year 2010, but it's true. And sometimes I still have to recover emails from damaged OE data files -- just the other day, in fact. A customer's pitifully poorly maintained Outlook Express deleted items folder had ballooned into multiple gigabytes from years of reckless archiving. No, I'm not sure why...

Google releases free tool to migrate from Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps

Rejoice, small-, medium- and enterprise-size users of Microsoft Exchange! You can now migrate your company's entire database of contacts, emails and calendars to Google Apps. The tool takes the form of a small app that you can download from Google -- all you have to do is install it, run it... and that's it! It works with both Exchange 2003 and 2007, and you need to be a Google Apps Premier or...

Outlook Social Connector now supports MySpace; Facebook soon!

The Outlook Social Connector first debuted back in November 2009, and at that time, only LinkedIn was supported. Today, the MySpace plug-in has been made available, and now you can see your friends' easily-excited, angst-ridden emo updates in Outlook! If you're running Outlook 2010 Beta (which is very, very nice, incidentally), you'll need to update your Outlook Social Connector (OSC) first....

2Do is a gorgeous iPhone task management app

If you're already using iCal's built-in todo management, or Outlook's tasks on a Windows machine, and you're just looking for an iPhone app that can synchronize with what you're already using, you should check out 2Do. 2Do is a very well-designed and pretty to-do list manager, with the ability to create multiple lists, set priorities and due dates, notes, URLs, and even default actions such as...

Look out! Outlook wants to become your new social media and collaboration hub

It's been a long time coming, and perhaps a little too late, but you can now track your friends' and colleagues' social networking activity in Outlook 2010. Dubbed the 'Outlook Social Connector' (OSC), the functionality is available right now to all Office 2010 Beta testers. The list of much-needed features that OSC brings to Outlook is long and juicy. 'Activity Feeds' is the new social media...

MailRaider - open Outlook .msg files on your Mac

One of the more frustrating things I found when moving from Windows to a Mac in a business environment was receiving email messages that contained other messages as attachments. This is a fairly common thing for Outlook users to do, and it doesn't usually cause problems because Outlook can happily open those messages. It's not very good email etiquette and you should avoided doing it if possible...

Goodbye Entourage, Hello Outlook for Mac

Well, it was bound to happen! During a press call today, the Microsoft Business Unit announced that they are working on a version of Microsoft Outlook for Mac OS X. The news comes in tandem with Microsoft providing further details about the next major release of Office for Mac. Microsoft's Business Unit says the new application, which will replace Entourage when it is released in 2010, will...

Add Twitter support to Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010 with TwInbox

One thing that surprised me about Outlook 2010 (apart from that whole HTML rendering fiasco) was the lack of any social features - like Twitter, for example. TwInbox began life as OutTwit a couple years back, and it's steadily improved over that time. The current version is a 490kb add-in that works in Outlook 2003, 2007, and even the 2010 Technical Preview (if you hadn't guessed from the...

Much ado about Outlook 2010's lame HTML rendering

There's a minor uproar happening on Twitter over Microsoft's plans to continue using Word to render HTML email in Outlook 2010. Fixoutlook.org reports that nearly 8,000 people have signed a petition via Twitter to encourage Microsoft to change its mind and support web standards before the new version of Office leaves beta. To back up its claims, the site links to an HTML email message rendered...
