Ratings & Reviews
Outlook for Mac is unusable
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 have also used it on a 13 inch Macbook Air without trouble as well.
I find I can swap files between the windows machines I have to use in work sometimes flawlessly which is important to me and none of the programs have crashed while I was using them on the mac.
The applications included in the Home/Business suite all appear to be quite stable to me. …

Very pleased - and very, very relieved!
I moved from a PC to an iMac in July and had used MS Office on the PC for many years.
When I saw some of the, extremely, advers I moved from a PC to an iMac in July and had used MS Office on the PC for many years.
When I saw some of the, extremely, adverse comments about Office for Mac I didn't know what to do and decided to do a bit more research. I then decided to take the plunge and all of it worked perfectly. Hence my relief.
All of the individual programs are slightly different to their PC counterparts but I had no trouble setting them up. I expected problems from Outlook but it readily accepted my .pst file from Windows and everything was there including ongoing tasks, saved emails and all my contacts. A number of my files for Word and Excel were password protected but this didn't cause any problem.
A seamless changeover to Mac! …
