    Good books? (Outlook 2003)

    Hi folks,

    Our employer (UCLA) has commanded us to switch to Outlook 2003 from our current mail client. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good book for an experienced computer user(me). I'm very comfortable with Windows programs and have done some programming in Access and Word, so I'd like a book that both gives me a good introduction to Outlook and takes me a bit deeper into the program. (Such as integrating it with other Office apps, automating it, &c.) Any recommendations?

    thanks much! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    Re: Good books? (Outlook 2003)

    If you are looking for texts on power usage of Outlook, there are plenty of those from Google, and this Forum is usually helpful. If you are a quick study (UCLA pun intended) this O'Reilly book http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/outlookpt/ has an irresistable cover and O'Reilly books are usually good. There's also the QUE "Special Edition Outlook 2003 " book by Patricia Cardoza, and MS Press "Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 Inside Out" by Jim Boyce.

    Pretty much the starter/intermediate Outlook VBA book is Outlook Programming Jumpstart by Sue Mosher, and the website for that link is also an excellent resource. A comprehensive listing of Developer books is here in Sue's 'Slipstick' site; if you want to get into Outlook coding in depth, consider Randy Byrne's book. You should also take a look at the Redemption Library, and Outlook can also be programmed via VBA through CDO, http://www.cdolive.com is a good starting point (that site can be very slow). If you are coming at Outlook from the Exchange Server end, also look into http://www.msexchange.org as a starting point.

    Also for Outlook see MS's website resources, including Outlook VBA Language Reference Download and Outlook 2003 VBA Language Reference

    Does this help?
