MS Office Beta Notes

This is a side-blog where I intend to keep all of my notes from Beta testing new versions of Office. This will keep them all in one place for future reference. I started this with Office 2003, and am bringing it back for the 2007 version. This is not an official Microsoft site, this is just the ramblings of one IT guy.

Hotmail and spam

Turns out that the spam features do work on Hotmail, sort of. It only identified and moved the spam messages from the Inbox to the Junk Mail folder when the message itself was highlighted. But it did catch both messages that Hotmail's own anti-spam features didn't.

The other interesting thing with the hotmail, and all the other mail, is that Outlook automatically cleaned up the formatting and got rid of extra line breaks. Combined with blocking "some images or external content" (Outlook's words..), it makes all the messages very easy to read.
