Excellent

25/09/2016

Outlook remains the business email for me.Microsoft outlook is a software that helps me manage all my emails and other application accounts. I am a Microsoft user since the year 2008, its been years since. My first choice has always been Microsoft rather than yahoo. Yahoo accounts are quite complex to create, where outlook ones are extremely easy to create. There is also an ability to change and edit colors which I find really cool. Other features like highlighting or flagging the mail are also available, I would often use it to keep the important emails on the top. I also love the cleaning up the mail option.

Pros

The designing is pretty impressive. It has access to several apps like calendar, social connector or the weather bar.

Cons

There is no Google Apps connector yet. These days it takes so much time loading the emails. It often sends important emails to the spam portion I wonder why.

great app for work

30/08/2016

I am so happy I downloaded this app for work. I can view my emails and calendar when I am away from my computer. It connects well with desktop version.

Pros

Integrates well with the desktop version - my emails and calendar are accessible from both. This app is better than the internet login but I still prefer my desktop version.

Cons

The folder system is not made for customization like the desktop version.

Great

24/05/2016

I know alot of people don't use Outlook anymore and choose to just keep their emails on the web. I still prefer to use Outlook because I can save way more history. Even when my PST file fills up, I can archive & still have access to the old emails. It has come in handy on more than 1 occasion.

Pros

Saves to my hard-drive, so I am not limited in space

Cons

I no longer use the Outlook calendar & have switched over to using Google Calendar since the calendar entries show up on both my computer phone.

Microsoft Outlook should keep up with the times

28/02/2016

Times are changing, and Microsoft Outlook should change with the technology trends. I'm not saying it's not a great tool for internal collaboration - but there is a new generation of workers coming to the workforce, and it needs to adapt. It's not as easy to use as gMail.

Pros

Tons of features Reliable, for the most part Great resources online to get help

Cons

Not always intuitive for today's user Could have a cleaner UI Needs to stay up-to-date with current tech

Microsoft Outlook

26/02/2016

I have been using and supporting Microsoft for about 15 years. Starting from Outlook 97 to Outlook 2016 and 365. The overall functionality has not changed drastically over that time. The interface has matured over the years. It is a great mail app and it is worth the investment. Having recently moved to Office 365, using Outlook to access my work email from home has never been easier.

Pros

Ability to integrate and import different mail clients into Outlook has made it a one stop mail client for me.

Cons

Troubleshooting Outlook problems can at times be frustrating.

The only mail app I use

26/02/2016

I use Outlook 2010 on my computer for work and at home. I use it in conjunction with Outlook.com. I also use outlook as my mail app on my IPhone 6. It keeps all of my emails synced across all of these platforms and for multiple email accounts including Gmail and Yahoo. It has met all of my expectations and even exceeding them on most occasions.

Pros

Easy to use and very flexible.

Cons

I would like to see an Out of Office feature with a start and end date that can be used for more than just a Microsoft Exchange Account.

Microsoft Outlook

11/01/2016

MS Outlook seems to be the go to email provider for pretty much every business I have come across with the exception of a few. The newer features in MS Outlook 2010 and newer with the ability to setup automatic replies for certain time periods as well as searching for past emails from a certain person that you can narrow down to a specific time period, whether or not the email has an attachment, or even if you were not the direct recipient.

Pros

Ease of use Popularity Features

Cons

Creating subfolders in your inbox Max file size for sending attachments is never clear
