A New Look for Outlook
New colors and a fresh design pick up on the look and feel of Microsoft
Windows XP and its theme-related motif in Office 2003. You’ll find a number of
improvements in the interface that make better use of available screen space
and more efficient use of your time. One thing you’ll notice is that the Favorites
menu (did anyone really use that in Outlook anyway?) has been traded for the
Go menu, which offers options and shortcut keys for moving among the
various Outlook views (plus Journal).
Icons are helpful, but not at the expense of on-screen workspace. That’s
one of the clear messages of Outlook’s new look. The icon bar that stretched
down the left side of Outlook XP has been replaced with a more functional
Navigation Pane, which includes the Folder List in the default view.

room on-screen and makes better use of available space.
