What do you like best?

Actually there is not much thing that i like about Microsoft Outlook. This tool seems so old fashion to me. It is not as useful as any other mailing tool. It is good you can see all meetings in your calendar overall but yet it is not the best. It is reminding you when your meeting is coming up soon. Every 45, 30 and 15 min it has a reminding alert so it is impossible for you to miss the meeting which is sometimes really important in working life. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like microsoft outlook how its looking. For me it is so much old when we compare to its competitors. Also it not easy to uses if you are using for the first time ever. It is complicated and there is coloring of mail which i never understand why there is. I do not recommend to my friends and family to them to use. Not useful, not chic, not so much proffesional looking i would say. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would not recommend to others when they are thinking to use this tool for their daily or professional life. Its because not a perfect tool to use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is good you can see your whole month's schedule and you may see if you accept the meeting request or not because it has special color in this type of situation. I can say there is many benefit to use microsoft outlook if i have to be honest. I do not solve a problem with microsoft outlook i am usign that tool only because my company forcing me to use. In my normal life i do not use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I really like using Microsoft Outlook because it is one of my favorite tools to send and receive emails from my company or from someone else, Outlook allows me to send documents, attachments, images, among other things through its platform and without having any trouble.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I don't like about Microsoft Outlook according to my experience is that when I tried to access my account it blocked my access temporarily by adding a phone number, all the important emails I had received were automatically deleted and that is why partly like that aspect Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best thing about the Microsoft Outlook is that we can categories are emails very easily. Also with the advanced search feature, it is very easy to find an email.

The UI is also very professional and is much better than gmail. The flagging feature is also very well implemented. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are using Microsoft Outlook daily as our email companion from past three years. All the communication happens through microsoft outlook.

Also other Microsoft softwares such as Excel, one drive is seemlessly integrated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This mailing app helps to have the mails both online and offline. The sync between server is good and helps keep the entire mailing record in your PC which makes it easy for you to work offline.

The mail editor is very similar to Microsoft Word, so you can expect all the features of it. Also bringing in the artefacts from MS excel, Powerpoint and word is very easy and the formatting remains the same which makes your overall mail elegant.

Viewing the attachments is very easy and seamless and it provides you with editing facility as well. The address book integrates with your office and it easy to look for people and the overall description makes it easy for you to find and locate the right person.

There is everything available in this app which you desire to have in an email management software. It can also be used on multiple devices (subject to organizational policies).

The features such as auto refresh, meeting scheduling and task management makes it even more versatile.

It is very easy to learn how to use MS Outlook. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The only disadvantage I feel in MS Office apps is that you have to continue to pay in case you want to update to latest version and support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Microsoft Outlook is one of the best software available in the market at present. You can go for it without giving a second thought. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are using Microsoft Outlook mainly for Managing our emails. We are also using the same for Scheduling various meetings.

The most important Benefit during meetings is that it gives you an advance intimation for meetings. You can send emails based on priority like "High Importance". You can also create a "To do" List of your incoming emails very easily by merely clicking a star next to email.\

This has improved the tracking the work and also creating reminders for other people. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Very easy to send and receive emails using this software. The ability to create rules helps to keep my inbox clean and not cluttered. I am able to have all emails from specific domains all go into specific folders as well as my daily reports file directly into its own folder so its not cluttering my inbox. Also a very big fan of the calendar feature to map out my day or weeks. I'm able to add in needed meetings and appointments to know when I have everything scheduled as well as to see when I'm free. I also enjoy how I can look at the schedules of other coworkers to see when they are free or when I am able to schedule time with them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes some time to figure out all of outlooks features and various functions, but once you get the hang of it, its very helpful. Sometimes it can take a while to search for an old email whether it just takes time to load or sometimes it just doesn't appear fro some reason when searching emails to or from a specific person. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend this product as I've enjoyed using it for the last 4-5 years and haven't really and any issues. It's definitely made this easier with all it has to offer! Although it may take some time to get used to and to figure out all the features, at teh end of the day it definitely makes things easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Clearly, Microsoft Outlook is the most popular tool for all companies all over the world. I really love that MS Outlook is a part of the M365 subscription with many feathers, such as great security, an amazing collaboration between Outlook and other software. Undoubtedly, MS Outlook is a top-rated software, but it would be unwise to mention that this software is a part of the O365/M365 subscription. It would be better if you have access to the whole M365 subscription. It depends on your business and requirements. You could also use web-access if you don't have your desktop software or mobile application. You can also include several security features into this software, for example, "Authenticator" with two steps of authentication (password + access through the mobile application). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You cannot use Outlook only, and you should buy a subscription for your O365/M365. Indeed, it is a standard for companies to buy M365; however, it could sometimes be comfortable using only Microsoft Outlook. If you have a perpetual license to Microsoft Outlook, it totally ok, but you should think about the M365 subscription. Subscription is cost-safely for you and your company—nevertheless, this software time- and expert-proven. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

MS Outlook is my day-by-day software. I use Outlook for my everyday routine:

- Incoming and outcoming e-mails

- all meetings and calendar (desktop and mobile)

- Mobile Application for Android and iOS Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Microsoft Outlook gives the best place to manage all your day to day official and work emails. My office outlook has a capacity of 99 GB which can store tons of emails and with the easy search mechanism you can locate even your oldest emails in a fraction of seconds. It also helps you in scheduling meetings with the help of other Microsoft business platforms like Skype & Teams. With the facility of calendar, you can track all your meetings and also get reminders for the same so that you don't have to worry about getting them missed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Outlook has one major problem and that is with email syncing. Quite often I face this issue with my outlook where the sync fails and then I have to fix the same by accessing credentials manager. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the groups feature. It allows you to send and receive emails from one particular group and it shows up as its own tab in the left-hand sidebar. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it can be very glitchy. I have a Microsoft outlook education account, and I have often had trouble logging in. Sometimes when I click login, it will sign me in and then take me back to the login page. At times, it has locked me out for hours at a time, and I end up missing important emails. I also wish that it was easier to use. I am certain that there is much more I can do with my account, but it takes extra time to figure it out. It tries to mimic google drive, by letting you sync all you important documents, calendars, contacts and emails in one place, except drive is much easier to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would suggest that you consider other outlets for email communication and file sharing which are much more efficient. Microsoft outlook will do the job, but I think Google drive is much easier to use and has not been glitchy in my experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft outlook has allowed me to communicate with my colleagues on important research projects. The benefit is being the easiest way to reach them, as it is an institutional account. However, we have found other means of communication to be far more efficient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Been using this for so many years now that it feels like managing work communications and collaboration without Outlook would be impossible.

Microsoft Outlook is the epitome of what email clients should be and Microsoft is doing a terrific job at keeping it fresh, capable and full of integrations.

The calendar and contact management inside Outlook is great alongwith the Scheduling Assistant and other insights.

There are tons of features like filtering, scheduling, creating tasks, managing sensitivity of the content, integration with Information Rights Management, Cortana Briefings, MyAnalytics, follow-up reminders, the list can go on and on. And, it works very well on the Web and Mobile apps as well, if not as good as the desktop app, but not bad on any note. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Outlook is a heavy software and when you have to search from emails out of thousands of emails dating back some years, Outlook starts to slow down, sometimes becomes nearly unusable for a few moments, but this is not a daily activity, so not much of a big deal.

Other than this, there isn't anything to dislike about Outlook. It simply works! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

That it is straightforward and easy to use. I also like the calendar and list functions, they are very intuitive and make using them very easy and helpful. Creating folders and organizing messages is also fairly simple and makes for a better experience than simply letting everything pile up in the inbox. I also like the smart autofill function, it's fairly accurate and intuitive so it makes writing certain messages that I send weekly a breeze. Also, if you are like me and your company offers the entire Microsoft Suite, the integration with other Microsoft software is amazing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish the automatic setting on mobile wasn't to let the person receiving the email know that I'm sending this from a mobile device. I get that it's like marketing for others to download the app but it's annoying that I have to go in and turn it off. I wish the search function was a little more intuitive, if I search for a keyword I'd like the search results to be more accurate in regards to what I'm looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software seems to be the standard since I've had to learn how to use it for my past job in an entirely unrelated field and my wife does as well so it's really in the best interest of anyone who works in any field to learn this software, thankfully it isn't very complicated. I would also recommend watching videos about how to maximize its benefits. It's not difficult to use and once you really get the most out of it it really makes life easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sending and receiving work emails and scheduling work meetings. I 've realized that there are benefits to really learning how to use this software and all the tools that come with it that really increase the ease of use such as being able to search my school district as well as individual schools and add their calendars to my calendar. This ensures that I don't forget about meetings and since they link to zoom, I can join meetings from whatever device I am using at that moment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What I really like about Outlook is all of the information you can have on one place. You can have all of an organization, including their contact information, and picture just by clicking on the image. You can access a calendar of other people as well as your own to find a time to meet. You can draft all your emails and schedule when they will be sent. So much functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about outlook is that it could be definitely easier to use. At times it can be confusing because it has (too many) options and therefore can become confusing. In addition, I do not feel it has the same options to categorize emails as GMAIL does, which I find as a huge advantage when you are signed up for retail emails or social media emails that you do not want flooding your main inbox. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication - it is easy and reliable to communicate with others professionally. There are many benefits to using outlook as it is integrated with all of the microsoft systems and one drive. My complaint would be that their main competitor - Google - is definitely more user friendly while offering the same functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Good layout, ability to load a whole bunch of emails, integration with other Microsoft apps, "classic" email client means everything is intuitive. But looking good only goes so far. I only wish it actually worked! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I used to use Outlook years ago. I stopped because I got too many emails, which made it totally sluggish, end ended up just moving to webmail clients instead. Recently, I came back to it because I now have too many email addresses to manage on their own (like 6). Unfortunately, it has been nothing but a headache. In only a couple weeks of use, I have had the following issues:

1) Emails forwarded to me do not show any history of the conversation. I can log into webmail to read it, but Outlook hides the entire thread.

2) Attachments can't always be forwarded. My partner tried to forward a pdf to me. It got stripped out of the email.

3) Emails get deleted. I tried moving a batch of emails to a new folder, and they all disappeared. No longer in the inbox, not in the folder, not in the trash, not anywhere. They were gone as if they never existed. These were invoices I had to pay, and Outlook just DELETED THEM PERMANENTLY FOR NO REASON.

4) Just now, I tried to respond to an email. I clicked "Send", and immediately my entire computer crashed. I got the infamous blue screen of death! When was the last time anyone actually saw that? Seriously, it's been 20 years since I've seen a blue screen. But sitting here in 2020, on a new computer with Windows10 and the most recent version of Outlook, and I crashed my whole computer. WTF?

So I'm done! How can anyone in their right mind publish a piece of crap software like this? Microsoft, what were you thinking? And I'm not just some random dude that ran into some problem. Just a bit of googling to solve some of these issues revealed how many other people are experiencing the exact same problems as me, and turning to the internet for some help. Even Microsoft has recently announced that they are going to completely rebuild Outlook from the ground up, indirectly indicating that they know what's up. How could they not? All you have to do is use this program for a week and you'll be ready to take a hammer to your computer. If you are considering getting Outlook and 1) value your sanity, and 2) value your personal relationships, and 3) actually want to use email productively, then for the love of God, stop before it's too late!

Obviously, I'm venting. And yes, now I feel a bit better. I will feel much better after I delete Outlook from my machine, which is happening immediately after submitting this review. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have too many emails, and need a streamlined email client in order to manage it all. I have realized NO BENEFITS by using Outlook. My life has become worse for using this program. I intend to make it better by deleting it and never installing it again. I suggest you do the same. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Where do I start! Microsoft Outlook sits right at the heart of the O365 Suite and quite comfortably my most used software (a close competition with Microsoft Teams, there) during business hours. All work communications that need to be more formalized than just being on Chat find their way in Outlook emails.

The tool itself is great at managing emails with tons of options to filter, set rules, focus folders, etc. And the calendar management is fantastic with various viewing configurations. The scheduling assistant does a great job of trying to help when multiple participants are needed in a meeting.

Some of the new additions that I've fallen in love with are - Insights and Cortana Briefing. These help a lot and improve your productivity (maybe over-reliance on technology, but helpful nonetheless). With more extensions and these out-of-the-box features, Outlook is staying fresh and improving productivity to a great extent! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As many great things Outlook has, just like any other tech solution it has some areas for improvement. One of them is how heavy of an application it is, searching can be a pain sometimes especially when you're searching for something that dates back a long time. Do not mistake this for the search being bad, it is not, but in some cases, it just takes too long or even manages to freeze Outlook momentarily.

One more thing that I sort of do not like very much is that sometimes it just won't open, the windows app would keep on loading and loading and it'd take forever for it to open. In some cases, I have to kill it from Task Manager and get to my emails by running Outlook in safe mode. The problem goes away on its own or after a restart.

Other than that, it is overall great and has far more positives than shortcomings! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
