The following is a (really old list) of programs you can use with Outlook. I've used them all at one time or another. I wasn't planning on moving this list to the new site as I have no plans to add to it or update it, but it gets enough hits each day that it's not going to be a dead page anytime soon.
Some of these utilities are free, others are shareware and well worth the investment. They all work with current versions of Outlook. If you want to see more utilities for Outlook, slipstick.com has the largest list of Outlook and Exchange utilities on the Internet.
