5.0 out of 5 stars Outlook works, finally 14 Jun 2013
By Martin Turner HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Mac
Office Mac home and business 2011 is an incremental upgrade to the Office 2008, with one crucial difference: Outlook is included, and it actually works.

I've been using Microsoft Office since 1990 on MS-DOS, Windows and Macs, and, from memory, this is my tenth different version. Fundamentally it still does the things it was good at in 1990, but it has added on many peripheral tools. I doubt that anyone uses all of them.

When Macs went to OS X, Microsoft did not release an OS X version of the Exchange client. For a while we continued to use the OS9 version, but after a point OS X no longer supported OS9 applications. In previous editions of Office, Microsoft has included Entourage, designed as a Mac equivalent to Outlook. Entourage was fine as a replacement for Mail and iCal, if you wanted one, but, crucially, it never managed for me to connect to work-based Exchange servers. In fact, Apple Mail and Calendar worked, but MS's own product didn't.

In addition to an interface makeover, a handful of newer functions, access to MS online services and, Visual Basic, Office Business Edition now comes with Outlook. It connected painlessly to our Exchange servers, and allows me to give delegate access, which Exchange for Web doesn't and neither -- for our server -- would Apple Calendar.

If Exchange is important to you, this is worth the price of the new version, and also worth the price difference between this and the Home and Student edition, which doesn't offer Exchange.

The other new features -- and many of the old features -- are take-it-or-leave-it. The ability to edit pictures and diagrams is ok, but not as good as proper Mac software like OmniGraffle which does this in a dedicated fashion.

Microsoft office is as expected. The download process was quick and easy.

The only annoying thing is that Amazon does not want to produce invoices (with VAT) for software downloaded on their web-site. I asked for one and someone from Amazon kindly called me back telling it was not possible as they send only to those to private addresses. After insisting, he told me I will get an invoice by mail. 10 days later, still nothing. Amazon does not seem to be keen to send proper invoice with VAT which make me wonder if they are not using a VAT lower rate (from Luxembourg, for instance) or no VAT at all?

I bought this product 2 days ago and have spent all my time since trying to get Amazon to help in trying to get the corrupt file that they have available on their website fixed. But they offer no help, they simply palmed me off to Microsoft who have been uncontactable using the numbers that Amazon gave me.

To be clear, Amazon's download link is corrupt and they will do nothing to fix it.

I have been trying to get a refund but Amazon have refused. This is not good enough from Amazon. They should provide me with a full refund so that I can purchase from a website that actually works!

This has completely changed my view of Amazon and I won't be using them again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this from Amazon 11 Mar 2014
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Do not on any account buy this from Amazon. Microsoft will not support you if it goes wrong. I bought it from Amazon and it took 6 days to resolve. If there are problems in downloading then Amazon do not help you in any way. Microsoft are worse, they just do not know what they are doing. They are the worse company I've ever dealt with. Each department told me something different and it costs a fortune to ring them. Eventually, close to a breakdown, I rang Apple and they patched in remotely and sorted everything out. So if you have to buy this product buy it from Apple (I also think it's better to buy the CD.) Personally the whole thing has made me start using Apple products like pages, numbers and keynote. I want to get Microsoft out of my life. I actually feel violated by the service and Amazon were clueless too.

It's basically the same package as you'd get on a Windows platform, but there's several differences, most notably the inability to get read receipts on emails.

If you need cross-compatibility, then it's a necessary evil.

I only gave four stars because both the picture and the description are misleading the picture shows a box that looks as if it contains a disk, in fact when it arrived the box is only the size of a cigarette box and there is no disk. Also in the description of system requirements it states that a CD drive is require. I realise now that this is for the more expensive CD biased product but the fact that the two are offered on the same page is in my view confusing.

Further more the "also bought" suggestions recommends you buy a Superdrive, which I did!

If like me you have just bought your Macbook Pro you may be unfamiliar with the downloading process, when you get to the download stage it starts to download the whole of office a process which takes about three hours in my case (I have a download speed of about 3.5 meg) to monitor the progress of the download click on the download tab at the top right of the page in Safari, a page will open showing you the progress of the download giving a time for completion.

When I started the download I thought nothing was happening and kept trying again and again to get some indication of what was happening, silly I know but I have only moved over to Mac a couple of days ago.

As to the programs all works well Outlook is so much better than mail which is why I went for this package, and Word makes it simpler to produce document that PC uses can see in full.

To sum up this is a cost effective way of getting office including Outlook on your Mac, Subject to my initial comments I would recommend this product
