If it is RT, Outlook will be coming in a month or so with an update. You can install printers, but not from the disk that comes with them. The Surface needs to auto detect the printer. This has been seamless for me with network printers. I go to add a printer and it just shows up. If you want to directly connect one with USB, I would expect it to be detected like a USB device and set it up, but I haven't tried that.
