New features in Outlook 2013

Inline replies You can now draft your reply directly in the Reading pane without opening another window. For lengthier replies, you can pop your reply out of the Reading pane.

Draft email messages Email messages you havent sent are marked as [Draft] in the Contents pane. If youre replying inline in the Reading pane and you navigate away from your draft, the new draft indicator makes it easy for you to return to your pending email message.

Unread messages Messages you havent read are more clearly displayed in your Contents pane with a blue bar to the left and bold blue text. And you can now filter your email messages to unread messages only and return to all your messages by using the new All and Unread commands at the top of the pane.

Delete button on messages When you point to an email message, a new Delete button is displayed to the right, helping you quickly remove email messages you no longer need.

Navigation bar The Navigation bar at the bottom of the window now uses text instead of images. And you can drag the navigation options to reorder them.

Peeks When you point to a navigation option, peeks enable you to view details for that item. You can view your upcoming appointments, review contact availability, and display upcoming tasks without switching to a different view.

Weather bar You can view your calendar and get a snapshot of the weather at the same time. The weather bar can help you plan activities.

Custom folder sort Now you can drag folders to a location of your choice in the folder list.

People cards The new People card collects all of the details about your contacts. It merges information from multiple contacts and connected social networks in one view. The People card also displays availability, notes, organizational hierarchy, distribution list membership, and current social updates.

Attachment Reminder Now Outlook can determine if an email message should contain an attachment and remind you to include it.

Improved search Improvements to search help you find email messages, attachments, contacts, and appointments faster.

Exchange ActiveSync support Now you can use Exchange ActiveSync for other email services, like Microsoft Live Hotmail, without the need for additional add-ins, and you can receive push-based updates.

Outlook Program Environment

You can control the display, and in some cases the location, of program window elements from the View tab of each module. In addition to the title bar, ribbon, and status bar that are common to all Office programs, the Outlook program window includes four areas in which you work with Outlook items.

The four content areas of the Outlook program window:

Folder Pane This collapsible pane appears on the left side of the Outlook program window in every module. Its contents change depending on the module youre viewingit might display links to email folders, Microsoft SharePoint lists and libraries, external content, or view options. By default, the Folder Pane is minimized to display only favorite folders. The Folder Pane state (minimized or expanded) remains the same as you switch among modules.

When the compact Navigation Bar is displayed, it is incorporated into the Folder Pane and displayed vertically when the Folder Pane is minimized or horizontally when the Folder Pane is open.

Content pane The content pane is the part of the program window bordered on the left by the Folder Pane and on the right by the To-Do Bar when the To-Do Bar is displayed, or by the right side of the program window when it is not displayed. The content pane displays the content of the selected moduleyour message list, calendar, contact records, or tasksand can also host the Reading Pane.

Reading Pane This optional pane can be displayed vertically or horizontally within the content pane. Within the Reading Pane, you can preview and work with the content of a selected item, or display a full-featured preview of a file that is attached to an Outlook item (including Microsoft Word documents, Excel worksheets, PowerPoint presentations, and PDF files). The Reading Pane can also host the People Pane.

The Reading Pane can be displayed in any Outlook module but is displayed by default only in the Mail and Tasks modules.

To-Do Bar This optional pane can display a monthly calendar, favorite contacts, and your task list, or any combination of these that you choose. In Outlook 2013, the To-Do Bar can be either open or closed, but not minimized as it could be in previous versions of Outlook.

To change the width of the Folder Pane or To-Do Bar

Drag the divider between the Folder Pane or To-Do Bar and the content pane to the right or left.

On the Navigation Bar, click the ellipsis, and then click Navigation Options.
