Using Outlook with Word

Microsoft Outlook 2000, Microsoft Office's "personal information manager," is included in every version of Microsoft Office 2000. Outlook 2000 integrates with Word in three key ways that can make you more productive:

  • If you use Outlook as your email client software, you can edit your email with Word. This gives you access to Word's extensive formatting and proofing capabilities. You can also send a Word file as an attachment, using the File, Send To, Mail Recipient (as Attachment) command. Using Word as your email editor is covered in detail in Chapter 4, "Printing, Faxing, and Email," in the section "Word Documents and Email."

  • You can track your contacts in Outlook, and use your contact information in a Word mail merge (This is covered in detail in Chapter 14 in the section “Using an Outlook Address Book as a Data Source.)

  • You can track your Word documents through Outlook's Journal feature, making it easy to find out what files you worked on when, and for how long you worked on them. This is covered in the following section.
