2. Accomplish more in less time.
New task panes put the tools you need just a click away, helping you find files

Create professional-looking documents with enhanced formatting, editing, review,
and Web integration features. Use new speech recognition to dictate text, direct
formatting changes, and navigate menus.

Document Recovery gives you the option to automatically save your
current document, spreadsheet, or presentation at the time an application stops
responding, so you don’t lose a moment’s work.
6. Compare and merge changes easily.
Send for Review streamlines the feedback process for MicrosoftWord, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint®, giving
the author full control over which comments and revisions to accept or reject.

Microsoft Outlook® makes it easy to send
and receive e-mails from multiple accounts, including MSN Hotmail®.
You can also send and receive instant messages with MSN®
Messenger—all within a single view.

Microsoft SharePoint™ Team Services allows the seamless sharing
of information between Office XP applications and your team Web site. Team
members can upload documents, participate in discussions and surveys, and add

Recover your documents. In the event of an error, Office XP keeps a
backup of your work, giving you the chance to save and recover it so you
don't lose valuable time or data.
Protect from virus attacks. Powerful new antivirus tools help IT
pros control team security settings to help prevent virus attacks, thereby
avoiding costly downtime.
12. Simplify deployment and control:
Reduce downtime during deployment. The Office Profile Wizard saves
personal computer settings to a file or on the Web—create them once, and
instantly apply them to any computer, anywhere.
Customize desktop configurations. IT pros can use the Custom
Installation Wizard to customize security settings and Outlook profiles,
eliminating unnecessary features or applications.
Control your environment after initial deployment. Administrators
can use the new Custom Maintenance Wizard to make changes, and update user
profiles without a full redeployment.
