since Windows already has Outlook. If your Windows users are already
Yes, Outlook is a GREAT program, but:
- It's microsoft, so it will NEVER run on Linux...
- It's costly
using Outlook, then what would be the difference (aside from the cost,
but it is my understanding that if you've already purchased outlook and
it works for you, there shouldn't be any reason to shell out money for a
newer version, just keep up on the security patches. hehe)

No, here we want to switch to OpenOffice for win+linux. But we must keep
