Getting to Know the Outlook 2010 Interface

Part of the Outlook 2010 All-in-One For Dummies Cheat Sheet

In order to create a new Outlook item, whether it be a new e-mail, a new appointment, or a new To-Do item, you enter details into a form, such as the Message form shown here. The forms may change a bit depending on the type of item you’re working on, but some things, like the elements listed here, always stay the same.
