Outlook organizes your emails, calendars, contacts, tasks, and to-do lists, all in one place. That organization starts with your email account. From there you can start working with emails, turning them into tasks or appointments, and storing information about the people you interact with in your contacts so that you never have to remember an email address or a phone number. Let’s take a quick walk-through of some basic tasks.
