Outlook 2010 now features Roaming Autocomplete and Roaming Signatures.

What’s New with Contacts
The Quick Contacts Card enables you to trigger new messages, instant messages and phone calls. In addition, it will let you see the organizational hierarchy and other relevant information. Outlook 2010 also includes a Suggested Contacts group comprised of recipients who aren’t already in your Address Book.
