Microsoft Outlook (formerly Microsoft Office Outlook) is a program primarily used to manage e-mail, but its range of uses has increased with each version released. Outlook also has a calendar feature that you can use to track appointments and important events, create new events, and invite or update other Outlook users with shared events. Since its default settings are sure to leave some users frustrated, Outlook allows for rule creation, which can tell the program to change its processes.
