A red-letter day: something I like better in Outlook 2010 than in Outlook 2003  
Note: I know other calendars are better. I'm required to use Outlook at work. Thank you.

Anyway, the thing I like: In Outlook 2003, if you created a repeating event (say, "Spring break, every day from March 19 to March 23") and then copied it to another calendar (because, say, you maintain calendars for five different groups and three meeting rooms), only the first day copied and you had to set the repetition on each calendar.

In Outlook 2010, if you create a repeating event and copy it to another calendar, you get a little pop-up that offers you the choices "Copy series," "Copy selected occasion," and "Cancel."

This is a goodness.

That's a good reminder that sometimes adding a feature isn't needless feature bloat, but actually a useful addition for pro users.

*nods* There was something else I just ran across today that I liked, but now I don't remember what it was.

Oh! Right. You can create calendar groups and then open all the calendars in the group with a single click (or any one or more of them individually). I now have my five leave-request calendars in one group, my three meeting rooms in another, the meeting rooms in the other building in a third, and so on.
