Microsoft Office Outlook
What is Microsoft Office Outlook?
Microsoft Outlook is an application developed by Microsoft as part of the Office line of productivity software, but can also be purchased and installed as a stand-alone application, meaning it can exist without the other components of the Office suite. Outlook is the world’s most popular desktop e-mail client, and although it has gotten its popularity from this Microsoft classifies it as a “personal information manager” – it is the digital equivalent of a personal assistant or a secretary, as Outlook manages your calendar and schedule, tasks, as a repository of your contacts, a journal, a note-taking software, and even a web browser using the Internet Explorer protocol.
Outlook is one of the Office applications that have been popular with third-party add-ons and extensions, with such plugins as enabling it to be used on other devices such as BlackBerry smartphones, or even with Skype capabilities. There is also a version for Mac, Microsoft Outlook for Mac.
Microsoft Outlook should not be confused with Outlook Express, which is basically the Outlook program without the robust internal features of Outlook, such as personal information management. Instead, Outlook Express is just an e-mail and news client, and was later superseded by Windows Live Mail.
