  • Hi Kev,

    Microsoft will definitely develop the 64 bit office products to work with Win 7 64-bit and also introduce the 64-bit technology widely to the world. The 64 bit version of Outlook will be available in Office 2010. 

    I tried Office 2010 Technical Preview 64 bit, it's really fantastic. I am looking forward to it. :)

    Cheers,
    Michael

  • I've been using the x64 beta version of Mozilla's Thunderbird (called Shredder) email program with both Vista x64 and 7RC x64. Works fine. Not as full featured as Outlook but it IS x64.

  • I'm using the 64 bit version of Outlook in the technical preview of Office 2010 and it is pretty impressive speed wise.

    I regularly need to search for past content (in folders of about 4-5000 emails) and it is surprisingly fast compared to Outlook 2007.

    However, in answer to your question, YES !
