Microsoft Outlook or Outlook (full name Microsoft Office Outlook since Outlook 2003) is a personal information manager from Microsoft, and is part of the Microsoft Office suite.

Although often used mainly as an e-mail application, it also provides a calendar, task and contact management, note taking, a journal and web browsing.

It can be used as a stand-alone application, but can also operate in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange Server to provide enhanced functions for multiple users in an organization, such as shared mailboxes and calendars, public folders and meeting time allocation.

We were on vacation for two weeks and computer was turned off. I use Microsoft outlook 2002 student and teachers edition. My new received messgaes are not showing as bold anymore and I am wondering if someone can guide me through the process of changing this back and not sure why it changed in the first place. One thing that was odd when I started up the computer after 17 days the date and time were changed and all kinds of things were messed up. Any help or information or where to go would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance, Melanie

I appreciate the fan base that these other applications have, but are you kidding me. Outlook is massively better in features and functionality than any of the email applications listed. I would challenge those that voted against it to give it a try.
