What is Outlook?
Outlook is an email and PIM client that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. The program is mainly used as a personal information manager or electronic agenda by relying on one or more Exchange accounts.
Outlook uses the MAPI protocol which allows efficient management of Exchange server mailboxes, even large ones, and allows you to create a local copy of the mailbox to be able to use it even when you do not have an Internet connection.
