Two-way communication of Messages

Email Readers such as Eudora, Netscape Messenger, Microsoft Outlook Express and Microsoft Outlook all have their strong and weak points.  But when it comes to everyday Email and the associated daily activities of Business and Personal life, Outlook is the clear winner.

Microsoft Outlook for PC/Windows Advantages

Email - easy creation of Folders for organizing email messages, easy management of email addresses, powerful sorting and search tools, and overall ease of use.

Previous Versions resources LINKOGRAPHY

Unfortunately Outlook is only sold as part of one of  the Microsoft Office Editions - What's in the Office 2003 Editions LINKOGRAPHY.  Microsoft Office Small Business Edition is the most economical Edition but it can only be purchased Preconfigured on a new computer - example from Dell Canada LINKOGRAPHY.

Microsoft Outlook or Entourage for Mac Advantages

The advantages are similar to the PC/Windows example above.  Unfortunately the Mac version of Outlook is designed for larger businesses that must have access to a Microsoft Exchange Email Server.

Entourage for the Mac is similar to Outlook for PC/Windows and it runs on Mac OS 8.1 and later operating systems.  It has most of the features of Outlook mentioned above including Email, Calendar, Address Book and Tasks.  Entourage is available as part of an Office Edition.  Entourage X is available as a standalone product in the USA only.
