Although Apple’s built in Mail and Calendar apps are pretty good, many companies prefer to standardise and have everyone using the same mail and calendar client regardless of the computing platform they use. But Outlook for Mac has always seemed to be a step or two behind its Windows counterpart.

Today, Microsoft has announced that a number of highly requested features (which I think is code for “stuff we do in Windows but never got around to on the Mac”) are making their way onto Macs.

The Windows blog gives a full rundown of all the new features for Outlook for Mac.

The new features include

  • Email templates
  • Creating tasks and calendar entries from email
  • Send later

If you’re on the Office Insider Fast Ring, you’ll get these updates today. The rest of us will need to wait till next month.


  • Can it sync with Gmail Calendar? I use Google Apps at my work and being able to send and receive internal meeting invitations via Google Calendar is vital.
