Question For the Flist

As others mentioned in my Flist, much (if not all) knowledge is available through the Intarwebz. So here's my position & dilemma. Mentioned earlier, the new replacement phone (trying to combine the phone with the PDA for simplification purposes) is a Treo 750. Turns out this uses the Windows Mobile application rather than the Palm OS. Further investigation (not necessarily complete) indicates that the phone will much prefer if I use Microshaft's Outlook as my Personal Information Manager rather than the Palm Desktop I've been using. There are apps available to migrate the data. That's not my problem.

I want feedback on Microshaft's Outlook. I've never used it. One may be able to tell from the way I name it, I'm not a big fan of the vending company. On the other hand, I do allow credit where it's due and there are at least two applications from the vending company which I've used, and decided do represent state of the art functionality and ease of use. The majority of their software, however, leaves me with a huge disconnect between what I want, and how I want to be treated by a vendor, and what is supplied.

I need this feedback to make a decision to either continue to use this particular 'smartphone', or switch to another model inside my 30 day trial.

So, Flist, what's the buzz, tell me what's a happenin'

I've had to use Outlook at work for the last couple of years. It's tolerable.

I will not laugh. I will not laugh. I will not laugh.

OMG ROTFLMFAO! What a delightful, humourous typo re. the subject. Naked Outlook!

Hey, give a gal a break, I have otterz in cupboards making odd noises and I just finished marking 126 first year med papers on ethics and despairing of todays youth, coupled with a flu jab which has left my right arm very bruised feeling.

What, I should give you a break for making my day? *G* It's a correctly spelled word. Just... the meaning of the word, taken in context with how I feel about Microshaft products in general...

Naked Outlook! It is to laugh!

I've used Outlook for years at work, and liked it enough that I use it at home too. It's great.

I have to use it at work.
Take off the setting for Preview.
There is a reason why it's called a virus magnet.

The first thing we do on any computer that we acquire is de-install Outlook. The security risks are just too high for our comfort.

I have never used it.
I've been warned about how vulnerable it makes one's computer. We always make sure our outlook is disabled, first thing.
