Microsoft Outlook, the worst thing Microsoft ever wrote. Slow, complex, complex, slow.

Today's entry: searching for a name.

Seach for aaron. In All Address Lists.

outlook_address_search1

Oh. No result. So let's try by specifying one of the Address Books.

outlook_address_search2

Now it finds three hits, one of which actually exists.

so,

a) this is crap

b) Under "Address Book", I can choose "All Address Lists". What is an Address List? Do they mean Address Books? Or is an Address List something different to an Address Book. Outlook is just horrible in a hundred million ways.

I now use Thunderbird v3 for my personal email on Windows. It's a revelation. Because Windows Vista takes five tram stops to boot up and Linux/KDE takes one tram stop, I prefer Kmail but sometimes one has to use Windows.
