For most business users (and many home users too), Microsoft Outlook has become the standard application for managing emails, calendar appointments, and to-dos.
With an abundance of features and versions for desktop and mobile, there's really no excuse not to be organized. Or so the theory goes.
With the average office worker receiving over 100 emails per day, the reality for most people is email overload, missed deadlines, and calendars so full you have no room to stop, take stock and smell the roses (as the saying goes).
