Outlook & eBookMan

I believe Outlook Express is geared more toward non-business people. It's more basic, with less capabilities than Outlook. Although I'm the only one using Outlook in my home, I find it much more comprehensive. There's so much MORE you can do with Outlook!

If you're looking for a program that will synchronize everything, go with Outlook and forget about Express, as has been mentioned by Cyntha.

eBookMan is a type of PDA, or Palm device. It has the capabilities to download all my info from Outlook. I can also play games on it, and read ebooks with it. Right now I'm reading Anne of Green Gables. Franklin has a whole bunch of free ebooks that I can download and read - lots of classics!

Anytime I make an appt I place it in my eBookMan. At the end of the day, I plug my eBookMan into my computer and synchronize the two - all the info in both is updated. If my computer crashes, I have everything backed up on my eBookMan. If my eBookMan dies, I have everything on my computer. Real slick!

If you go to the Franklin site click on the word "eBookMan" at the left of the page. I bought mine at a local Christian bookstore, and it came with KJV and NIV Bibles.

I think the computer gurus have finally figured out that consumers don't want all these fragmented information from dozens of programs. If your PDA and PC weren't compatible, you probably would end up not using either one

I've been having grand fun writing tasks lists and sending myself reminders and ringing bells, etc. --Anything to keep from doing the actual task

My tech and I are having issues over this. He swears that I do in fact have Outlook in this Microsoft Office 2002 and I don't see it anywhere. All I have is Outlook Express and I cannot make him understand that these are two different programs entirely.

Not to be a complete fool here, is Outlook located within another program in Office 2002 that I'm just not aware of?

Hi! Being a huge Palm fan and having a sister that is also sight impaired-I look for things/toys for both our PDAs. On Palm Blvd I saw a gizmo tha can snap or atach onto you PDA to magnify your viewing screen. She was looking into it at last check. I don't have the magnifer but I"m sure if you go to you can find it.
now on the Outlook-you can print out different kinds, sizes of pages. My whole fruatration in life was when I had a paper panner and Outlook on my computer. Well, my Palm and Franklin Covey/outlook add on have taken all that away. Yeah!!!

Well I hope you find some workable solutions that work for you!! Good Luck!

Ok, I don't even know your tech, so don't take take this personally, but when the tech personality gets cornered in any way they 1) make you feel stupid so you wont' pursue questions 2) say we talked about this remember, you told me to... 3) ask who's been messing with your computer 4) claim you must have downloaded something to cause computer to misfire

That said, Outlook and Outlook Express are two entirely different programs. I don't know if you have your favorites on desk top, and that's were you are looking, but if not, go to Start / Programs/ and then look for Microsoft Outlook (that is, it is under M not O)--Outlook Express is under O. That is where it "should" be.

If you don't see it, go to Start/ Find / type in outlook and make sure the path (the last blank is for your hard drive) This functin should show you where it is.

I hope this helps. If I'm being too specific in describing how to look for something, I'm not trying to be condescending, I just remember being so frustrated when I was trying to learn and people assumed I knew anything at all.

I believe you mentioned that you have a new computer. If you have Office 2000 (which is currently pretty standard installation for PCs--Word, Excell, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access) are the programs in Office 2000. I you still don't see Outlook, you might just look for the other 4 programs.

I should have double checked this before, but Microsoft in the past has also provided add ons to Outlook that are free to download from their web site. They had a recipe program which was handy . You might want to check out their web site once you get going.

Hope this has been helpful

I have Office 2002

Which includes Excel, Access, Powerpoint and Word, but no Outlook .

I will go to Microsoft and see if I can't add Outlook.

Thanks for your help!
