And no, you didn't miss a version. Microsoft has skipped 13 (a trick NASA should have done long ago). There are a few bug fixes in the latest, such as better relaibility and a problem some users had syncing blank messages. There are some new features in Outlook 14, though:
- Junk filter settings. Safe sender, blocked sender, and safe recipient lists are synchronized between Outlook and Hotmail.
- Integrated Send/Receive. Send/receive works just as it does for your other Outlook accounts.
- Integrated connection status. The Hotmail account status appears in the Outlook status bar.
- Rule support for secondary accounts. Rules can be applied to the Hotmail account in Outlook, even if that is not your Outlook primary account.
- Synchronize your drafts. The Outlook Drafts folder synchronizes with the Hotmail Drafts folder.
