The Basics of Outlook 2016
I can show you how to launch it from the Start menu, so let's get started. Let's start with What is Microsoft Outlook? Microsoft Outlook is the core product in the Microsoft Office suite that helps us to manage our day, including things like our email, which we use for communication, calendar that we use for scheduling, tasks that help us track our to-dos, being able to locate and communicate with the people in their organization, and probably one of the most underused areas of Outlook, which is the Notes. The magic of Microsoft Outlook actually happens when you see all of these things work together to help you manage your day, so let's launch Microsoft Outlook. To launch Microsoft Outlook from Windows 10 press the Windows key, and type Outlook. You'll notice Outlook 2016 appears at the top of the Start menu. I'm going to click to select that option, and Microsoft Outlook launches. You can access the other areas of Microsoft Outlook using the navigation bar at the lower left hand side of the screen. Thank you for watching, and I'll see you in the next clip.

Working with Email
In this clip I'd like to show you how to compose a new email. We're working today as Karen Burk, and she just got promoted at her company, Contoso. She needs to let her team know that there's a series of emails that are going to be coming through to prepare them for their meeting on Friday, so let's choose the new Email button from the ribbon. The new message window appears, ready for us to address, and include our content. The first thing we need to do is select our recipients. You could type them in individually, however, we can access the Global Address List by clicking the To button. Now Alan Steiner is our VP of corporate marketing, so I need to include him on this email, so I'm going to select him here, and then click the To button. Our entire sales team is also going to be included, so I'm going to go ahead and search for that group. Once your recipient is located another way that you can add them to the To line is just to double-click. We will discuss the To, the Cc, and the Bcc fields in a future clip. From here I'm just going to go ahead and click OK. There we go. Add the subject, and from here you could compose a long email message, however, I've already queued up some text, so I'm just going to go ahead and paste that in. I'm going to go ahead and click the Send button. The recipient should now receive that in their email box. Thank you for watching, and I'll see you in the next clip.
