There is no doubt that Outlook is a highly useful email client application. However, its use is limited to the office atmosphere. Most people use Outlook for office purposes and prefer webmail services for home use and personal purposes. At times, you may wish if you had contacts, emails and other relevant data in Outlook at work on your home computer. However, you can easily synchronize your office Outlook data with Outlook on your home computer. After synchronizing, you will be able to send emails to your business contacts from the convenience of your home.
