"Exploring Microsoft Outlook 2003 Help Feature"


The Outlook 2003 Help feature offers several quick ways to get help when performing particular tasks. You can select from a list of topics provided by Help, or you can even type a help request in plain English, and Outlook will supply the answer using the Answer Wizard.


The Office Assistant

In Outlook 2003, you can use the Office Assistant to get help quickly by typing plain English questions or phrases.

To use the Office Assistant

  • From the Help menu, click Show the Office Assistant to turn the assistant on if it has not been turned on.
  • When the Assistant is turned on, you can quickly display the Assistant and its balloon by choosing "Help, Microsoft Outlook Help" from the menu bar, by clicking the Help toolbar button, or by pressing F1 on the keyboard.

The Ask a Question Box

Microsoft Outlook 2003 provides a convenient new alternative to using the Office Assistant, Ask a Question Box.

To use the Ask a Question Box

  • You can get help by typing a question or phrase in to the Ask a Question Box that you will find in the upper-right corner of the application and then pressing Enter.
