Hi Ycadore,

I think you are considering switching from using our webmail program to using a desktop email program - which is a good move particularly if you regularly use the same computer to check your email.

Before making the move to Outlook, if you haven't considered Thunderbird already, I would strongly encourage you to (see http://www.mozillamessaging.com/thunderbird/). Unlike Outlook, which is owned by Microsoft, Thunderbird is free and open source software. That means that it belongs to everyone. The more people use, learn, provide feedback, and promote Thunderbird, the more everyone benefits. Whereas using Outlook simply adds to the largess of Microsoft.

Furthermore, Thunderbird is an excellent mail program.

You can learn how to configure most email programs (including both Thunderbird and Outlook) to work with May First/People Link here:
