Certain appointments that are scheduled to occur on Saturdays (including December 31, 2011 and later Saturdays) disappear from Calendar in Outlook 2010. This behavior occurs after you install the update that is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2633952. Specifically, the missing appointments use the Samoa time zone and that were created before you installed the update.

Outlook 2007 allows you to send a portion of your Calendar within an email message so that someone without Outlook can read it. This method is not as functional as sharing your calendar with someone who has Outlook. However, sending your calendar in a message can save you from typing a list of your open times for a meeting.
Outlook 2019 is an email software program developed by Microsoft. Outlook for Windows is part of the Microsoft 365 suite (formerly known as Office 365) but it can be downloaded independently. This email client communication program makes it easier for you to view, store, and organize all your messages. The program has also taken a cue from another Microsoft 365 program – Word. Outlook can now read your messages aloud to help you understand the message you’ve received.
Those upgrading from Outlook 2016 will see all the features in this version of Outlook as well as a few new ones. The Accessibility Checker has been updated to support international emailing standards and offers handy recommendations to make your documents more accessible to the recipient/s. Sending emails will become easier as the Focused Inbox helps you view your most important messages first. It does this by segmenting the mail into two categories: Focused and Other. Your key emails will be on the Focused tab, keeping the other messages accessible but out of the way. You don’t need to worry about missing messages as the program will inform you about all the messages that enter the tabs. The catch with Focused Inbox is that it requires a Microsoft 365 or Exchange email account. Those that do not have the required email account can still organize their messages. Organize any of your mail folders by adjusting the inbox’s filters. Filters vary from All Mail, Unread Mail, and Mentioned Mail. By clicking Unread Mail, you will see all the messages you haven’t opened on your screen.
