Outlook is the evolution of several programs and web clients including Schedule+, Exchange Client, and Hotmail.com. The first perpetual-license version of Outlook was launched in 1997. Now, it is a central part of the Office program suite. It's primary function is as an email application, but it also includes a calendar, task manager, contact manager, note taking functions, and more. Outlook works well on it's own, but it is also partners with Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SharePoint Server for multiple-user organizations for functionality such as shared mailboxes and calendars. There is also a mobile application and a web client version of the program.
