The only place I use Outlook is where they pay me enough not to complain about it.

Apple has a chance to fix Apple Mail and the constant "this message has no content" blank emails. If not, there will be more people who give this a shot.

Hmmm, nothing is free, probably phones home a lot with all your data.

I'm stuck using Outlook (Mac) for work, that's bad enough.

I really, really hate the unification of calendar, contacts and email that is intrinsic to the design. What an awful idea from long ago - I hated it in 1998, I hate it now.

The complete lack of integration with native Mac services, coupled with the weird formatting bugs that cause Outlook emails look terrible on any other client is just too much. Apple Mail is better. Gmail is better. Mimestream is better.
