Office for Mac 2011 14.1 Update

SP1 for Office 2011 was released on the 12th April(12/04/2011), today was my first moment to give it a look over.

Office 2011 SP1

The main thing I was after was the addition of Exchange server side rule manipulation. I’ve had a few questions about this from fellow members of staff, they adopted Outlook for Mac to replace Entourage or Mail.App etc and have had to keep a Windows Outlook session on hand to manipulate rules.

I went straight to the rules section, and got this:

Looks like I’ll jhave to press on with that Exchange 2010 upgrade! 1 step forward, 2 back.

Another addition is the ability to resend a mail, so far it was a faff, having to either forward/reply your mail and edit the content and subject line accordingly to make it look like a fresh mail. The ‘Resend’ option is now available on the Message menu and the right-click context menu.

I’ve not paid too much attention to what is updated in Word, Powerpoint and Excel, I’m a pretty basic user of them all, so long as spell check and SUM work, I’m pretty covered ;).
