    What is the Best Feature of Outlook (2007)

    I'm teaching an Outlook class to a group of people who have been using Outlook for a long while. I'm digging to think of features with that "WOW" factor.
    So, I'm wondering what are the features that you think are the coolest/most useful/most underutilized in Outlook 2007.

    I like the new search method. As soon as you start typing, it starts searching.
    Often before I finish typing in what I want found, I see it in the "Results" pane.

    I really like the customisable To Do pane, improved printing options for calendars, and if I change a view to only see recurring appointments, then the export to file function applies to that view. <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15>

    My favourite by far is the ability to preview attachments in the message window rather than having to open them in an external application. Although support for html attachments is long overdue!

    My favorite feature is the drag and drop features in the calendar

    where I currently work we have an internal work management system so I hardly ever use task, therefore I do not have these showing on the To Do list.
    I have my preferences set to show three months calendars and 6 forthcoming appointments
