[nobe-l] How to use Microsoft Outlook 2010 with Jaws

I once had a gmail account and found it to be horrible as far as ease of use. Maybe it was just the set up of my JAWS, but I couldn't effectively compose or edit mails, find mailboxes or messages, and quickly dumped the whole thing. For absolute ease of use, my personal favorite was Outlook Express (finding Outlook to be too busy). I also avoided Outlook because it always tried to automatically sync with and update my phone and Maestro, neither of which I wanted. Not a concern now (YAY for Mac). 

As for JAWS on a flash drive, it use to be that you had two drives, one containing the program and a second containing the authorizations from FS. You should check with your IT people as most of the computers I use at school/work now only have two USB ports. I think this set up also allowed you to take your version of JAWS with your settings to any other computer with a JAWS authorization regardless of its version, but I won't swear to that.
