About Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager from Microsoft designed to help users focus on what’s important with a clear view of email, calendars, and contacts. Microsoft Outlook enables users to communicate more effectively by connecting efficiently with others. Available as a native mobile app for iOS, Android, and Windows devices, Microsoft Outlook gives users the flexibility to manage their inbox anytime, anywhere, via tablet and mobile devices.

Mircosoft Outlook allows users to see everything they need to know at a glance. Users can preview messages in the message list, so they'll know which ones to read and act on first, and then reply with just a click by typing a response directly into the reading pane. With Outlook, users can discover groups, quickly find what they need, and share files from the cloud, as well as manage their calendar and inbox. Calendar management tools allow users to share their availability, schedule meetings and receive notices easily.

Through the Outlook mobile app, users can access their unified inbox, schedule emails, and attach files conveniently. The mobile app allows users to share files from OneDrive, Dropbox, and Google Drive accounts while on the go, and without leaving Outlook. With Outlook's focused inbox, users can see what matters most first with the most important messages on top.

    Default email management with Windows

    Reviewed on 15/04/2024

    Pros

    Pretty much everyone knows and uses Microsoft Outlook. It's a very straightforward tool, easy to use and organize.

    Cons

    It doesn't take emailing to the next level. The new version is harder visually than the original version. The connection between Outlook and Teams can malfunction sometimes.

    Outlook Tries to Do Everything, Succeeds at Some

    There are pros and cons to using the Outlook client. The experience could be more even all around, but until a competitor can actually make a dent in Microsoft's market share (doubtful), Outlook will help keep us in business with its cycle of working great and breaking out of nowhere.

    Pros

    When Outlook is working smoothly, it is the best email client available - not that much real competition exists. From contact management to real time monitoring, filtering, calendar management, and more, it tries to give users a LOT of functionality all at once. And it usually delivers.

    Cons

    There is no reason to continually add unrequested features to Outlook, to constantly change the layout, position of the search bar, etc. Expect some down time here and there when Microsoft breaks their own product and puts out an advisory. It is far from perfect, and Microsoft could really benefit from simply working on making the core experience function more smoothly. Example: instead of throwing an error about the OST / information store and closing on a users' computer, maybe provide some guidance or attempt a self-fix. The amount of time we spend as a MSP fixing Outlook issues can be staggering at times.

    The only mailbox management platform for professionals

    Reviewed on 23/02/2024

    Pros

    Ease of use, alerting system, layout. Outlook is the best mailbox management platform I have come across in my career.

    Cons

    The search function is the only function requiring attention.

    My go to App

    Reviewed on 26/04/2024

    Pros

    I like that I can really set up my Google Outlook how I want it to be set up. I also like that I can send the junk to the trash with 1 click. I really love using this app.

    Cons

    I tried to login in from my other computer to print and document and i turned on my 2 step authentication and it just wouldnt let me turn it back on for some reason.
