Outlook
Outlook is the Exchange client used on a Windows computer to connect to Microsoft's Exchange system to check your email, edit your calendar, etc. The Outlook application is the latest Exchange email client for Windows. Outlook can be downloaded by UTHSC faculty and staff for use on university equipment by going to the UTHSC Microsoft Office Distribution Page. You must login with your Net ID and password to get to that download. If you want to acquire Outlook for personal use, free copies can be downloaded by logging into http://o365.uthsc.edu.
