You get used to it

3.0 last week New

Comments: I got used to it since our company requires us to use it.

Pros:

It's simple to install and I like that it does not have colors at all. It's better for the eye since I use it every day, all day long.

Cons:

Visually it is outdated, and when searching for emails it shows duplicates emails sometimes.

MIcrosoft Outlook Review

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Excellent experience overall. Besides some configuration issue, the program works very well and it brings several useful features.

Pros:

The interface. Its easy to user, clear and you have all important info at glance. I like the layout and the button styles as well.

Cons:

It hangs. Now less than before but in the last years Outlook was having troubles in handling large quantity of data. With the cloud service its much better (no more psts) but now it hangs when facing poor network performances.
