lol, just be glad you don't have to deal with it, and configuring plugins for salesforce and CRM in it without any information on the clients environment....i'm going to have a fun night

then there's the pst file size limits, 25 or 50gb, i don't care what MS says the limit is, they still get flaky once they hit the 10 gb mark, even before that

Agreed. I finally went back to Thunderbird semi-recently. Thankfully I don't need exchange.

I have to agree. Pretty much everything MS did in 2012 / 2013 turned out to be wet feces. And don't even get me started with Word and Excel's recent changes....

Not much to add that hasn't already been said. About the ugliest piece of software I've ever seen this side of Win8.

I never did understand why Outlook is so popular. I must be missing the importance here but I've used Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail for years and I don't see any reason to switch any time soon.

I actually really like the look of Outlook 2013, but every few days it will stop checking mail for me, and hang when I close it, so I have to force kill the task...
