This poll is the result of a thread in the Microsoft Answers forum: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...ing-from/a921ddc5-00e9-4304-9249-df5396f88e9b As Journal users are painfully aware, Outlook 2010's Contact Activities do not include the journal in the search results. Outlook 2010 also does not give users the ability to change which folders are included in the Activities search. Microsoft did this because only a small subset of Outlook users use the Journal and the feature is being depreciated. With the introduction of the Social Connector and the People pane, Contact Activities are less useful - you can see (almost) everything in the People Pane. In my opinion, it's the feature with a bug because it doesn't search all Outlook items, not Activities because it doesn't search the journal. <HTTP: activities.asp ol2010 outlook www.slipstick.com The options in this poll are: Yes, I live and die by the journal Yes but not often. I tried it but don't need it. No, I never tried it because it's not something I need. No, the admin disabled it years ago. Huh? Outlook has a Journal?
