Outlook is an e-mail management application from Microsoft that also provides calendar, task, contact management, note taking, journal, and Web browsing capabilities.
The application is part of the Microsoft Office suite. It can be purchased / installed on your PC as a stand-alone application, no matter whether the rest of applications of the MS Office suite are installed or not, and it can also operate in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server for providing extended functionality in organizations. This includes shared calendars, public folders and more. The most important difference with the previous versions is that this one comes with a Navigation Pane with customizable shortcut buttons to quick-access Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Notes, Folder List and any other functions you can think of.
Better known as Microsoft Outlook 2003, version 11 was first released on October 21, 2003, also bundled with Exchange Server 2003. It provides a webmail service called Outlook Web Access (OWA) of Microsoft Exchange Server 5.0 and later. The OWA interface resembles the interface in Microsoft Outlook, and is used to access e-mail, calendar, contacts, tasks, and other mailbox content when access to the Microsoft Outlook application is unavailable.
