How to Set Up Outlook in Windows
Microsoft's Outlook has been a part of the Office line up since 1997. After 20 years, it's become a well-established email management staple. Outlook is compatible with both Windows 10 and macOS. Setting up Outlook shouldn't take long, but it will help if you have your existing email account information on hand.

Outlook is part of the Microsoft Office suite, offering more tools and professional features for email management.
