Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is the preferred email client used to access Microsoft Exchange Server email. Not only does Microsoft Outlook provide access to Exchange Server email, but it also includes contact, calendaring and task management functionality. Companies can also integrate Outlook with Microsoft’s SharePoint platform to share documents, project notes, collaborate with colleagues, send reminders and much more. 

Microsoft Outlook may be used as a standalone application, but is also part of the Microsoft Office suite. Outlook’s current version is Microsoft Outlook 2010. Outlook is also available for the Apple Mac; its current version is Outlook 2011.
