Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is an advanced software that includes not only email management, but also contact management, calendars, scheduling, notes and more. It is often used in organizations backed by Microsoft Exchange Server. This combination provides powerful collaboration tools.

Microsoft Outlook comes bundled in the Microsoft Office suite.

Differences between Outlook Express

Outlook Express is a similar, but distinct, e-mail, newsgroup, and contact management application that Microsoft made available at no charge, in conjunction with older versions of its Internet Explorer web browser. Other than the similar name there is no connection between the two products and they originate from different divisions of Microsoft. While both offer access to POP3 and IMAP4 e-mail accounts, only Outlook offers client access (MAPI) to Microsoft Exchange. Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) does not include an e-mail client, however, and Windows Vista (which includes IE7) replaces Outlook Express with Windows Mail. For Windows XP, Outlook Express has been succeeded by Windows Live Mail.
