Outlook 2010 is a time and information manager that integrates email, calendar, contacts, and tasks. The 2010 version can also receive voicemails, faxes, and RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds in its inbox.

In the 2010 version, the Ribbon, which was introduced in Office 2007 and replaced traditional menus and toolbars with a set of task-based tabs, is available throughout Outlook and can be customized to suit the user's needs. The Ribbon's new File tab displays Microsoft Office Backstage view, which provides users with commonly accessed commands when opening or finishing a document and groups together related tasks.

Other improvements are user-defined Quick Steps, which can carry out several actions on an email with one click; expansion of Instant Search to RSS feeds; the ability to create and save groups of calendars for frequently scheduled meetings; conversation view, which organizes mail into groups of related messages; and Social Connector, which can update contact information of people in users' social networks and also list scheduled meetings, messages, and attachments from the contacts.

Some features are available only when Outlook is used with Exchange Server, which must be obtained separately.

Important Volume Licensing Information: With Office 2010 suites and applications, organizations can choose between two types of volume license keys for product activation: a Key Management Service (KMS) license key or a Multiple Activation Key (MAK).

Microsoft recommends KMS activation only for organizations with at least 50 networked computers requiring activation for any combination of Office 2010 suites and applications, including Project 2010 and Visio 2010. Organizations with fewer than 50 computers requiring activation or organizations with non-networked computers should activate their products using a MAK. also offers instructions on how to use a MAK or KMS key to activate volume editions of Office 2010.

Acquiring the Installation Media and License Key: Installing this product requires installation media and a license key. Installation media will be shipped to you free of charge.

The license allows you to use the installation media to install the product on as many computers as you have received donations for. This quantity is specified in the donation email sent to your organization email address after your eligibility has been verified and your administrative fee has been received. A separate email will give you information about obtaining your license key.
