WEB: Outlook Support Web Sites & Tools

Teamscope Software started doing a little newsletter.  I don’t know how success it’s going to be but I do know that their first effort was an admirable one.  They wrote up all the web sites they knew of that supported Outlook and I think that’s pretty cool.  Here’s an excerpt of the newsletter:
Outlook Support Websites
As a developer of products for Microsoft Outlook, we’ve found a number of websites that contain lots of great tips and techniques. Below are the best we have found: <>
Microsoft’s very own Crabby Office Lady offers tips on using all the Microsoft Office products. <
Hundreds of Outlook tips! Owned by Outlook MVP Diane Poremsky, President and CEO of CDOLive LLC, Outlook Tips website was founded in July 2003 to help users learn to use Outlook. <
Provides help and news for Microsoft Office Outlook and Microsoft Office related products. This web site is maintained by Robert Sparnaaij (A.K.A Roady in the Microsoft Newsgroups) who is an MVP for Office Systems – Outlook. <
Lots of advertisements, but a good source for news as well as discussions on common problems that Outlook users encounter. <
A comprehensive Outlook and Exchange solution center. Slipstick Systems was founded in 1994 by Sue Mosher, a 15-year veteran of The Associated Press, experienced journalist, technology manager and software developer. In January 2004, Sue sold to CDOLive LLC, a company formerly focused on developing Exchange solutions. CDOLive is owned by Diane Poremsky, also an Outlook MVP and the author of several books <>
Compilation of frequently asked questions and esoteric information about Exchange from the Exchange Mailing List and other various sources. <>
MSD2D is a resource for the Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, .NET and Security communities. <
Run by Sue Mosher, this web site is a meeting place for people who want to make Outlook work harder for themselves and their organizations by learning how to program applications for their own use and to share with others. No matter whether you are a beginner or an expert, this is a web-site for users that need to customize forms and develop new applications using Outlook. 
Outlook Tools and Utilities
We also use and recommend a number of tools and utilities that you may find useful.
Annoyed by the security pop-up that is displayed by Outlook on occasion? This utility automatically presses the Yes button for you whenever these specific dialogs are displayed.
Linker(tm) for Windows® is a free utility that generates links to items and folders in Outlook, and to files and folders from Windows Explorer. Linker is a system tray applet that automatically generates a hyperlink and places it on the Windows clipboard. The hyperlink can then be pasted into any MS Office document, Web page, e-mail message, etc. <>
Outlook Redemption works around limitations imposed by the Outlook Security Patch and Service Pack 2 of MS Office 98/2000 and Office 2002 and 2003 (which includes the Security Patch), plus provides a number of objects and functions to work with properties and functionality not exposed through the Outlook object model.
