Outlook does work wonderfully for e-mail, but, unfortunately, few know about its other abilities. Outlook 2000 in a Nutshell aims to correct this sad state of affairs by acquainting the reader with this suite's many features, and providing several convenient ways to use the excellent Personal Information Manager (PIM)." --Wilf Hey, amazon.com
