      I never use Microsoft Outlook. I appreciate the input as I'll give it a second look and maybe even start using it! I always thought it was not up to par. I see I'm wrong. Thank you, Nikki D. Felder

      I had to use Outlook when I was working but I never saw any advantage to it over simply using yahoo or some other email.
