Outlook

Microsoft's flagship mail client and personal information manager. Outlook is available for Windows desktops and mobiles as well as the Mac, iOS and Android. It includes a PIM, calendaring, to-do list and groupware functions and also provides a journaling capability for keeping track of hourly billing. Outlook can be the mail client to a Microsoft Exchange server or any other mail server hosted by an ISP.
