The most versatile amongst all featured e-mail clients in terms of features offered, Microsoft Outlook comes bundled with Microsoft Office. So it naturally integrates with all other Microsoft Office products; although mail merging works only in conjunction with MS Word. Outlook can use all the shared functions of Office 2003 including file converters and tools for proofing and graphing. No other e-mail client comes close to what Outlook 2003 has at the offering here. It has an outstanding personal information manager consisting of calendar(s) (including team calendars to assist in scheduling of meetings), comprehensive daily/weekly planner, to do lists and notes. All these functions perform
really well and don’t leave out anything that a user would require for his personal or business needs.

Among the clients featured here, Outlook takes up the maximum amount of disc space at 125 MB, though it consumes much less memory than most others. Microsoft has definitely revamped its spam filters as compared to its previous version. Its spam filtering by default was average, recognizing only 151/210 spam messages. For security concerns, digital signing and message encryption are available along with controls for controlling scripts, attachments and deciding upon operation on HTML inclusion, which is nothing all that different from others. The overall score for its UI, address book functionality, mail filtering and in-built search engine is excellent. Also its integration with MS Office makes it a good collaboration tool.
