    There are some very nice additions to Outlook 2010. It would be even nicer if you didn't change what people already know. It's nice to add but why change or remove? Did you learn nothing from the Windows 8 and 8.1 fiasco? Take View Group Schedules for an example. Not only is it called something slightly different, or works differently as well. It doesn't open up in a different screen any more and is now restricted as to how many schedules you can look at. Why? Why change a good thing? I use to use this daily. Doubt I'll even use now. Too hard to read now.

    If you want to be like Apple so bad, start by stopping all the changes all the time. If I wanted a different email program I would have gotten one. I liked Outlook but now I have to learn a whole new program while trying to do my job. When do you think we have time to learn a new program while working a real job?

    I know this means nothing to you but does give us a feeling like we've at least had our say. Even if it's to an automated system. (o:
