Differences between Outlook on the web and the Outlook mail application.

The Outlook mail application is the most full-featured way to view your email and calendar but must be installed on each device you want to use to access your email. Outlook on the web has fewer features but requires no application to be installed and can be accessed from any device through a web browser.

Is Outlook on the web the right tool for you?

Outlook on the web may be suitable if you:

  • Manage your own mail and calendar.
  • Schedule appointments for yourself or occasional meetings with others.
  • Need access to your account on the go.

The Outlook mail application may be beneficial if you:

  • Work mostly from one computer (desktop or laptop).
  • Manage others’ email accounts.
  • Manage others’ calendars.
  • Schedule complex meetings on a regular basis — e.g., recurring meetings with large numbers of people.
  • Have a need to archive messages.
  • Copy and paste email lists from Excel into messages or create contact groups.
  • Manage the workflow of others — e.g., student employees using Tasks.
