The new design also continues to use the classic Mac menu and standard toolbar thereby giving you the best of both worlds.
New Outlook for Mac
Outlook for Mac replaces Entourage and has been completely rebuilt using Cocoa for improved integration with Mac OS X.

Edit images from within Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. Recolor photos and images, apply filters and corrections, and even remove extraneous background imagery, right from the application itself.
