Microsoft Outlook Outlook2013Icon is a personal information manager from Microsoft, available as an integral part of the Microsoft Office suite.

Often used as an email application, it also includes a calendar, task manager, contact manager, note-taking, journal, and web browsing.

It can either be used as a stand-alone application or can work with Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SharePoint Server for multiple users in an organization, such as shared mailboxes and calendars, Exchange public folders, SharePoint lists, and meeting schedules. Microsoft has also released mobile applications for most mobile platforms, including iOS and Android. Developers can also create their own custom software that works with Outlook and Office components using Visual Studio. In additions, mobile devices can synchronize almost all Outlook data to Outlook Mobile.
