Is it free?

Outlook is one of the few Microsoft Office tools that can be enjoyed for free as a standalone or web-based application. However, there are many premium features that need to be unlocked by acquiring a Microsoft 365 license. You can either purchase it as a single license of the Microsoft Office pack or as a part of the Microsoft 365 pack. As usual, the more user licenses your plan will include, the less it will cost you per user. Microsoft offers a 1-month free trial period for new users.

The Office license is sold as a one-time purchase you have to pay up-front and has no upgrade option which means that you will have to pay at full price if you want to upgrade to a new major release.

The Office 365 plan includes all the up-to-date Microsoft office software in a single seamless integrated experience. It also offers extra online storage and advanced collaboration features. With Office 365 you no longer have to worry about using the last version of your office software.

Microsoft has a very flexible commercial business model so you will be able to choose among different plans depending on your needs. It includes the Family plan which allows you to share Microsoft Outlook with several other people, and the Personal plan if you only need one license.

Microsoft has a special subscription plan for companies and enterprises which depends on your type of business and your company’s size, and of course, there are also special plans for students and teachers. Find all the available offers on Microsoft's official website.

If you are not interested in the other services that come with Microsoft 365 you have the option to purchase a MS Outlook license separately. A standalone license for 1 PC costs $159.99.

Is it safe?

Outlook is a totally secure application. It features the same security protocols that are used by Microsoft for its business clients, including data encryption for inbox and for sent messages, detection and deactivation of suspicious content (spam, scams, viruses and other types of malware) and recovery of important emails and attachments in OneDrive.

Other alternatives

The desktop version of Microsoft Outlook is without a doubt the most trusted and widely used email client on the market. Nonetheless, there are a couple of very good alternatives out there. Perhaps the most famous one is the completely free to use Mozilla Thunderbird. Other free email apps worth giving a try are ProtonMail and Foxmail.
