    Although Microsoft Outlook is a great product in the enterprise where it's safely tethered to the ubiquitous Exchange Server, the product leaves a lot to be desired in the non-Exchange world. From PST corruption to outright weirdness, I don't want to spend more time managing my mail client than I spend managing my actual mail.
