If you scrunch your face at the mere mention of Microsoft, you may have run into some problems with its Windows operating system over the years. Maybe it was slow, buggy, or accessed too much of your personal information.
Or, maybe you've had tough times using its Microsoft Office suite for word processing, spreadsheets and presentations. You may have also taken swipes at its email systems, like Outlook and its old webmail service Hotmail.
If you used those systems, you may have run into problems with some functions. But, Microsoft has been noticeably improving Windows and Office. It's also been improving Outlook.
These days, Outlook has replaced Microsoft's desktop emails and webmail systems. That's a good thing because Outlook couldn't be easier to use. Plus, it has a lot of functionality, including letting you read emails from non-Microsoft accounts. Outlook also helps you to stay organized.
