When it comes to sending out emails easily and effectively, trust Microsoft Outlook. Since Outlook has been serving for decades, it flaunts many versions, too. Outlook 2016 or Microsoft Outlook 2016 is the greater version, succeeding both Office 2013 and Office for Mac 2011.
In the business world, Outlook is the standard email that everyone possesses due to some cool features. It allows you to send emails from Outlook.com aliases, schedule meetings, automatic replies, use Google Drive as Cloud Storage in Outlook, get delivery and read receipts, add voting buttons to emails, delay or schedule sending emails, and manage another person’s mail and calendar. So, it is cool, yeah?
Probably, the biggest advantage that users can feel proud of Outlook 2016 is its ability to add email accounts from different service providers and pull off their emails, too. For instance, if you have a Verizon email account and want to configure the same with Outlook 2016, you can easily do that and then continue to send and receive on the latter. Let’s learn the Verizon email settings for Outlook 2016 and start accessing Verizon emails in Outlook.
