Tired of Outlook? Try Something New (and Better)

You have thousands of unread messages, hundreds of unused drafts, and a spam folder reminiscent of Cthulhu. And it’s likely that Outlook isn’t helping the situation very much. Outlook is an industry-standard, but it is also a resource-intensive program. As far as aesthetics go, it is also kind of dull as compared to some third-party options out there. At Absolute Web Services, we love great design.

Why tolerate an email client you use everyday when you can use something shiny and new that you might actually love?  After all, we could all use a change of scenery in a land of cubicles and home offices.

We’re going to help those of you who work on a Mac and use Outlook, because we were once in your shoes. Any Windows product running on Mac is likely to experience a few, well, hiccups now and then. Trust us, there are other options. And here is the best one:

Airmail Email ClientAirmail

Compatible and completely supports Google Apps, Gmail, IMAP, POP3, local accounts, iCloud, Exchange, Yahoo!, outlook.com, and many more.
