Caution Advised in Choosing Which Version of Microsoft Office 2010 to Use
Preliminary tests by one of our consultants suggests that users of the beta version of Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Business edition may not be able to select Outlook as the default email client on their computer. This inability would prevent integration of Outlook with practice management software such as Amicus Attorney. It could also affect the ability to link Outlook to Worldox and possibly preclude synchronization of Outlook information with a user's smart phone. Similar tests using the beta version of Microsoft Office 2010 Professional edition have not revealed this problem. With the official release of Microsoft Office 2010 fast approaching, we suggest our clients to opt for the Professional edition and avoid the lower-cost Home & Office edition until these issues are further explored and resolved.
