Answers some important questions about the upcoming version.

Anthony Humphreys FAQ for Microsoft Outlook 97
This document attempts to answer some of the questions that people have asked me about Microsoft's new product Outlook '97

Microsoft Official Outlook Homepage
Discover how our new desktop information manager helps you communicate, organize and manage all of your information with one integrated application.
The Microsoft® Outlook™ desktop information manager is designed to help users with fundamental computing activities, such as organizing information on the desktop, working seamlessly with Microsoft Office applications, and communicating and sharing information with others. Outlook manages e-mail, calendars, contacts, tasks and to-do lists, and documents or files on the hard drive. Outlook helps users communicate through e-mail, phone support and group scheduling capabilities. Outlook also helps users share information by means of public folders, forms and Internet connectivity. Outlook is scheduled to ship in Office 97 and also as a standalone application. It is intended to replace Schedule+ in the Office box.

Infoworld Desktop information manager Outlook presents a great picture
Are you ready for DIM? Microsoft Corp. is calling its new offering, Microsoft Outlook 97, a desktop information manager (DIM). Despite its unfortunate acronym, a DIM is a cross between a personal information manager (PIM) and groupware. Outlook offers a compromise-free mix of e-mail, a calendar, a contact database, a to-do list, a group scheduler, an activities journal, and a desktop organizer. Due to ship at year's end, it will replace Schedule+ in Microsoft Office 97 and will have tight integration with Office applications, although it can be used as a stand-alone application.

WordLookIn also stores your last updates based on the current document template in the registry, allowing you to quickly select a template and contact.
