Integrate Windows Live Local with Microsoft Outlook

This is one of the neatest add-ons to hit Microsoft Outlook. The add-on integrates Microsoft’s Live Maps into your Outlook appointments. When you create an appointment the ‘Location’ tab automatically pulls map information from the Live website, when you input a from/to address it will plot directions for printing or later viewing.

I’m including some screenshots for you to view. So head over to Microsoft’s website and download this very nifty tool.
