Using Outlook with Word

Microsoft Outlook 2003, Microsoft Office's “personal information manager,” is included in every version of Microsoft Office 2003. Outlook 2003 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 30, “Using Word as an Email Editor.”

  • You can track your contacts in Outlook and use your contact information in a Word mail merge. (This is covered in detail in Chapter 17, in the section “Selecting an Outlook Contact List Containing the Names You Want to Use.”)

  • 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.
