Microsoft Office Outlook Alternatives for Mac

Microsofts Office Outlook is one of the most used software in the world. It's of course most famous as a e-mail client but it can do much more.

    • Despite its age, Thunderbird remains the most fully featured email client out there. Various add-ons can extend its functionality, it (now) has a built in calendar and, unlike Outlook, it's free, open source and respects your privacy.
