Microsoft Outlook is the business world’s most used email client to date. First released by Microsoft in the late 1990s, the software has been constantly developed over the years to adapt to advances in technology and progress in the way corporate business employees communicate with another. With around 1 billion reported users using the platform to send their emails day in and out and a majority of medium to large businesses using the platform according to recent reports by Microsoft, it only makes sense to adapt and reap the benefits of using Microsoft Outlook and assorted Microsoft Office products in your office.
