How to increase your productivity using DS Development Outlook add-ins
Outlook add-ins overview
With an estimated worldwide base of over 300 million users, Microsoft Office Outlook is the most popular Windows email client software, for both business and personal use.
An important factor of its success relays on the ability to use 3rd party Outlook add-ins. Basically, Outlook add-ins are software programs that run inside the Outlook environment, adding new features or improving the builtin functionality of Outlook. Starting with Outlook 2000, Microsoft implemented a programming interface for coding Outlook add-ins.
