    Hello there!

    Do you use Outlook 2016 instead of Apple Mail?

    I have to say that I own Office 2016 with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook.

    I read on German message boards that there are some Mac users who prefer to use Outlook.

    The most exciting thing is that Microsoft advertises Outlook with the words: "We speak Gmail". And I do remember that the previous version of Outlook had some problems with Gmail accounts and Apple Mail before OSX "El Capitan" either (there was a bug with the Gmail trash).

    Currently I am using Outlook just with my Hotmail account, but somehow it looks awesome.

    Before considering "switching" to Outlook 2016 I want to know, what advantages do you notice in comparison to other applications?

    By the way, there are also users who still use Entourage 2008.

    Outlook 2016 is still a castrated version of Outlook for WinDoze. No ability to resize images or videos like with Apple Mail. It's bloated (but that's a feature of all Microsoft software).

    I just hoped to get feedback from Microsoft Office:mac 2016 users.

    Me, too. After using Apple Mail for a few years, I switched and never looked back.

    No. I have to use Outlook on th Dell laptop I got from work. On the company iPhone I use Mail (setup by IT) and on macOS X I use webmail.

    I use Outlook 2016 (latest version 15.38) with Gmail as my primary mail provider. No problems so far.

    I use Outlook with a couple of different email accounts. Mail is simple, but I like some of the options in Outlook. For example, you can select for images in emails from contacts to show images. Mail requires the click/tap for every email. For newsletters I receive regularly, or emails from friends, I just want it all there. Outlook makes it easier.
