Outlook is an email application that you can access online through Microsoft Office 365. The benefits of using Outlook for your email include creating rules to organize emails, having an "always on" email application, and the integration of outlook to other applications like Microsoft Lync and Microsoft OneNote. Outlook can also be setup on your mobile device.

The Microsoft Outlook App is available on both the Apple App Store and the Android Play Store and is a great app for checking your email on a mobile device.

NOTE: There have been documented issues with Outlook Calendars for users with multiple iOS devices, including events that do not display in the calendar or events that repeat within the same time slot. Unconfiguring your email and calendar from the default iOS apps (Mail and Calendar) and using the Outlook application seems to solve this problem.
