Outlook 2010 in Home premium

I could not find the Outlook 2010 on my Home Prem version. Is it a paid software - is it worth buying?

Yes it is a paid separate program.

Why do you think you might need it? It's used for email, calendar, etc.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 needs to purchased separately from your operating system.

If you buy the MS Office Suite, Outlook is normally included with it. Is it worth buying? That depends what you're you're using it for.

You could use Windows Live Mail instead, which is bundled with Windows Live Essentials.

If you want some free office software you could try Open Office.

Welcome to the forum!

Outlook is not free. If you have the need for it, then I guess it's worth it. Seems kinda pricey for an email client and calendar software though. Windows Live Mail is free from Microsoft. It's a pretty good email client and you can add your accounts from other services too. (Like your ISP's pop3 accounts.)

Thank you fast answers. It seems strange that I DO have the standard Microsoft Office software-- Excel word PP etc. Isn't that the standard office suite? Also, are the Microsoft task manager and calendar worth using again- in order to compensate for the lack of the outlook
TY.

There are several versions of Office--some don't have Powerpoint, some don't have Access, some don't have Outlook, etc.

You can buy Outlook separately from Office, as a standalone application.

Not sure what you are referring to by "Microsoft task manager and calendar". I'm not sure if Microsoft has any other application that is similar to Outlook for the home user. MS does have other email applications.

It depends which version of Microsoft Office you buy.

The Student and Starter versions do not include Outlook, which is why they are cheaper.

Look at the colored table about 1/2 of the way down this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Office_2010

You should be able to ID what version you have by identifying what particular applications you have--Word, Excel, Access, etc. Each Office version will have varying applications.

I didn't know you had Works also. It may well have a chopped-down version of Outlook that may suit you. I have not looked at Works in over 10 years.

I think Works still uses Windows Address Book rather than Outlook, although later versions include links to Office programs if they are installed as well.
