After years of teaching my end users how to enable Out of Office and how to do archiving, Outlook 2010’s new ribbon moves everything yet again. Look, I don’t mind the transition to the ribbon, but why was Outlook excluded in 2007 and only recently “ribbonized?” Now we have to do basic ribbon training all over again. Thanks MS. Your inability to hit a deadline means more work for everyone else. Now all this stuff is helpfully put in the File > Info > Automatic Replies section. Err, progress?
Also, isn’t it a little hard to justify this icon nowaday? My email client shouldn’t be my dialer in the first place.
