  • Outlook for Mac is unusable

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Microsoft have known for a long time that there are issues with Outlook identities. Long and short, the proprietary Microsoft syst Microsoft have known for a long time that there are issues with Outlook identities. Long and short, the proprietary Microsoft system of 'identities' become frequently corrupted, meaning that every time Outlook connects to a mail server, Outlook thinks its seeing the same message for the first time, which means it will download 100's of messages again you have already read.

    Follow MS instructions and you will rebuild your identity or have to re-install Outlook. If you do this, you will lose access to all of your existing e-mail accounts, folders, diary entries etc. You will still be able to find them on your Mac, but Outlook won't let you view them as they were created with a 'different' identity.

    If you need further proof that Microsoft is not interested in supporting Mac communities, you only need to read the Apple and Office forums on this subject. MS must know about the issue and choose not to fix it. Contrary to what appears in some of the forums, this is not an Apple issue but down to how MS have chosen to set up Outlook. Sorry you'll have to use Mail or similar, even though Miscrosoft will have charged you for a non-workable product. Disgusting.

    Outlook...... Just save your self time and grief and throw it away.
    M$ really stuck it to Joe consumer with this one.
    Mine was actually disapearing emails. On IMAP. Not just deleting them, so you had to go wade through trash to find, but expunge delete. no warnings.
    I did the same to outlook in the end. Its Clunky, but use Mail.app. its free and it doesn't drive your stress levels up.

    I switched from PCs to Macs in 2006 because I started doing a lot of video and still photography.
    In order to use my new Mac notebook and desktop with my company's servers I had to use Office for Mac.
    I started with the 2004 version, upgraded to the 2008 version and now 2011.
    I've used it on iMacs, MacAirs, MacPros and MacBooks on all the OS systems since 2006.
    It is fabulous.
    No problems with Outlook across 6 or 7 different email accounts - POP, IMAP and Exchange Server.
    Pretty much all the functionality of the Windows versions - better business software in my opinion, than Pages, Numbers, Mail and Keynote.
    Expensive but it's been great for me.

This programme is in use on two Macs and it works perfectly well. For anyone escaping Windows this is an excellent means of moving to Mac with all Outlook files intact and useable. For that reason alone it is worth buying. The transfer is fast and effective, including all contacts and complete file structure. Ignore the voices of doom.
