Outlook 2003 - what is new and wonderful? Why upgrade?

What I am looking for is anything that can help create a nice list of organized bullets fairly professionally and quickly. Links ok, more points available. Here is an example:

http://www.microsoft.com/office/outlook/prodinfo/overview.mspx

A handful of bullets for a topic,  or anything else that is nice for a viewgraph or handout in a presentation. It should be understandable enough that I could back it up if asked.

Make up your own, you are welcome. Upgrading from Office XP with Exchange, I do not use enough of the features beyond send/receive to go that far on my own, so there should be plenty room for more than one to help me out here.

I need the presentation, the bullets are just one way to make up handouts or slides or whatever, so I am open for some alternatives. But be reasonable, I expect the audience to already be more technically competant than I am, they just may not have had a chance to hear the good news yet.

[I'll also consider splitting points for 'bad news' comments, since I have no desire to be caught flat-footed by any responses, but the focus here should be upbeat, like a dog & pony show]

Actually I never know. Not like I'd like to. I think of it more like telling them I know they've decided to go with it, the only real decision left is when. From their side, they always feel better when they come up with nice convincing arguments to give others.  One thing I did find out, or guess out, was that one or more wanted a prettied up brag rights, having just a few bullets of how getting the product(s) would save so many millions or billions, according to __________.

This question is so old I thought it a dead issue, no real answer or interest, etc. Given the above comment, I'll upgrade the point offer from 100 to 300 to reflect about 50 points each.

And I thank you all kindly that this question was not left to mere deletion due to audience caring more for SP's than upgrades, or whatever.
