Office for Mac 2011
Microsoft recently announced the new Office for Mac 2011. There are many new and exciting features, such as the Office ribbon, but the one I like most is the new Outlook:
New: Outlook for Mac Supports .PST Import
Along with the updated user interface and quick access to the Office Web Apps, the MacBU announced last August that Outlook for Mac is coming to Office 2011, replacing Entourage. Outlook for Mac is a new application that leverages the Exchange Web Services protocol and is being built using Cocoa, allowing for improved integration with the Mac OS. Today we are also announcing that Outlook for Mac will import .PST files from Outlook for Windows — a top customer request. In addition, as announced last year, Outlook for Mac features a reliable, high-speed, file-based database with Spotlight search and back-up support from Time Machine. Outlook for Mac also provides Information Rights Management to help prevent sensitive information from being distributed to or read by people who do not have your permission to access the content. Outlook for Mac provides an integrated solution for managing your time and information and, when it is used in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange Server, you benefit from increased collaboration capabilities and security enhancements.
Office for Mac 2011 will be available later this year. For updates on all things Office for Mac, follow the team on Twitter (@OfficeforMac) and on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Office-For-Mac/272026096667).
