    "change for the sake of change to sell more software"

    October 11, 2013  |   By wilmeland

    Version: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 14

    Pros

    none - unless you value whimsy and chance over reliability and utility.

    Cons

    Too many to describe in this space. This program is what my employer relies on for email. Seems like everything that was good about earlier versions of outlook has been bastardized/compromised with "features" that may be flashy, but not intuitive. Worst of all, reliability is totally gone. What used to be a robust and powerful tool is now a POS.
    On a daily basis, it drops connections to our mail server and /or returns numerous errors, locking the program and forcing re-start of program. Time wasted by program glitches and emails that do not get sent or received when you believe they have been. These are all among the best features this program has to offer.

    Summary

    Do not buy this program for any kind of enterprise work. Microsoft deserves the big turd award for this product.

    "Call the attorney general"

    May 6, 2013  |   By arrohead12

    Version: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 14

    Pros

    None. Worse, it's minus what used to be good. Actually, one star is too many.

    Cons

    Inefficient.
    Time Consuming.
    Not practical.
    Too busy.
    Junk mail bait.
    Stupid interface, almost as bad as the first software designed in 1930s.

    Summary

    Hard to work with software designed by crackheads. How could anyone at MS have used the former Outlook or Outlook Express and call this piece of junk an improvement? We should call the attorney general of the U.S. and ask them to look into Microsoft's empirical hold on this marketplace. First they design something good, then steal upgrade money from us for broken upgrades, then will want more money from us to fix the bad things they have managed. First, XP was their best OS, and Outlook and Outlook Express their best email programs. Now they shove this POS down our throats along with everything from Milienium, Vista, Win 7 to Win 8. It just keeps getting worse. I unloaded this junk mail program and download Mozilla Thunderbird. It has problems, too, but nothing like this.

    "I hate it, hate it, hate it."

    April 9, 2013  |   By sandykohn

    Version: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 14

    Pros

    There are none.

    Cons

    Too many to list. This program is impossible. I loved Hotmail. You know there is a saying - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Dear God what a mess this program is. I am going back to Gmail. I just have to figure out how to export my mail to Gmail.

    Summary

    I was FORCED into this program because of the idiots at Microsoft who decided that we needed to "improve" the email program. What they did was create a horrible mess. Good going guys! I and according to what I've read from others, am giving up on Outlook and seeing another email server. Bye.

    "Defective and fraudulent"

    March 15, 2012  |   By Algernon

    Version: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 14

    Pros

    Who cares; Microsoft lies about its features.

    Cons

    Conversation clean feature doesn't work, as numerous people online report. Microsoft has had two years to address these concerns and fix its bugs, but they're content to just lie and rob you instead.

    "You mean I can't give this ZERO stars?"

    December 30, 2011  |   By ksfrogman

    Version: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 14

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    If my real mailbox were this complicated, I'd use UPS or FedEx exclusively. If Microsoft insists on adding more bells and whistles, it needs to realize that 99.9% of average home users don't need that crap. Performing simple tasks is confusing, difficult to find on a maze of command bar and ribbon options. Give me a 1000 choices, and I bet I can narrow it down to less than a dozen: GET MAIL, WRITE, ADDRESS BOOK, TAG. Oh, wait, that's Mozilla Thunderbird. Phew.

    Summary

    Steve Jobs was right. Microsoft has no taste. Like other components of MS Office (Excel, Word, etc.), there are way too many features the User has to familiarize himself with. The sad thing is that one has to familiarize oneself with the features, so one can ignore them. Microsoft, you have wasted so much of my productive time!

    "I never use it unless I have to."

    November 3, 2011  |   By busycdm

    Version: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 14

    Pros

    Can't think of any

    Cons

    Have to have it to open a lot of email or webinars. I don't find it very user friendly. Only use it at work. I use WORKS for everything, it is much easier for me. But at least I have Office so I can open whatever comes at me.

    Summary

    It's a personal thing. Lots of people love it I'm just not one of them.

    "Why Post this Link as the Outlook 2010 Link???"

    August 8, 2011  |   By MrsMom40

    Version: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 14

    Pros

    NONE, Absolutely NONE, CNET, I am disappointed you would even assist Microsoft in this foolishness.

    Cons

    It's sad when you are looking for a product, have a shred of hope, only to be taken to a site, by that manufactorer, to get you to download a line for the whole Office suite, and when you do, the damn install doesn't work! What a load of crap!

    Summary

    Bottom line, I will more than likely move to Thunderbird, FREE, altogether for my email needs. I understand Microsoft is a company, and wants to turn a profit, but this is rediculous. CNET, since it is apparent that this is NOT a download link to Outlook 2010 ONLY, do the moral thing and take this link down. We are looking to download Outlook 2010 ONLY. If Microsoft won't give that, dump this fraudulent, misrepresentation of a link.
