  1. Peek at your schedule
    • You can grab a quick glance at your schedule, tasks or details about a
      contact you’re emailing without navigating away from what you’re busy with.

  2. Prevent forgotten attachements
    • Before an email message is sent, Outlook 2013 can detect if an attachment
      was omitted from the message and notify the user.
    • Outlook 2013 reminds you about forgotten attachments. When you refer
      to an attachment in the body of your email and click Send without adding
      an attachment, and Attachment Reminder window opens.
