A friend of mine is a Project Management consultant specializing in MS
Project. I asked her for advice on your behalf, and it appears below.

The short answer is that MS Project has limited integration with Outlook. If
you are using Project Server, (new with version 2002) your resources will
get an automatic e-mail notifying them everytime they have been assigned to
a task in MS Project, or an existing assignment has changed in some way. But
no reminders will pop up in Outlook. Tasks can be created in Outlook and
sent to a MS Project file, but when they get there they are entered as
taking up 24 hour days instead of the normal 8. There is no calendar
integration - in MS Project, a person's calendar registers only working and
non working blocks of time, there is no way to add Outlook calendar
appointments. There may be some improvements to Outlook/MS Project
integration in the next release, but for now, they really don't talk to each
other the way people would like.

Hi, guys...this is outside the box, but since it has to do with my technical
writing project, I thought I'd ask.

I have a project plan for one of my projects that covers up to the end of
May. I'd like to integrate Outlook to this project so that I can enable
reminders, automatic invitations, calendar ranges, etc.

Ever hear of such a thing?
