Microsoft Outlook is one of the leading personal information management programs. Included in the Microsoft Office suite of productivity products, the program allows users to send, receive, search and manage e-mail messages and attachments. It also offers tools to create and manage calendars, address books, to-do lists, tasks and notes. A simple font change allows you to insert source code into HTML e-mail messages in a manner that retains the proper spacing, indentation and character formatting of the original code.
