My wishes to you all on this New year 2010. This post is just to help my fellow beings on this earth to change a few settings in Outlook 2010. Since the beta release, I have been enjoying the new outlook 2010 (of course with out any glitches 🙂 ). It so happened that I had do a fresh installation of Office 2010 and had to reconfigure my settings (my previous installation had the outlook profile from 2007). Since this time I was forced to create a new profile, I created one as per instructions and every thing went well, till I got struck with getting outlook to do a send receive for every 5 minutes. It nearly took 15 minutes (had to go through each menu item thoroughly) to figure out the hidden menu. Basically the option to configure the Send & Receive settings has been moved and is now found under the FILE menu , OPTIONS and then Advanced items. Here is a screen shot of Send /Receive option.
Also do note that majority of the settings(Signatures,Fonts, styles, Calendar formats, etc) are configurable from this options menu. Its a pretty important menu, but just that its not visible right away. Feel free to share the experiences you had with the software.
