Microsoft Outlook is a personal information manager from Microsoft, available as a part of the Microsoft Office suite. The current versions are Microsoft Office Outlook 2013 for Windows and Microsoft Office Outlook 2011 for Mac.
Although often used mainly as an email application, it also includes a calendar, task manager, contact manager, note taking, journal, and web browsing.
We don’t recommend it because it is not Free and Open Source Software (software libre).
We have no tutorial written yet for configuring Outlook with Riseup. You can help by contributing one!
- Encrypt your mail! For enhanced message security use Encrypted Email.
- There are many vulnerabilities with how secure connections work. If you need high security, you should always connect to Riseup services using the Riseup VPN. This will prevent a long list of potential attacks against your communication.
- To enhance connection security you can use Tor to connect to Riseup’s .onion services for IMAP and SMTP. Look for the onion address for mail.riseup.net and smtp.riseup.net addresses and use those instead. Note: * SMTP port 465 is often blocked by exit nodes, but port 587 is less frequently blocked. If you have a problem sending mail, try port 587 or configure your client to use Riseup’s email hidden service in place of the regular
mail.riseup.netdomain. This is better than sending traffic through a Tor exit as it is MITM resistant, but it will generate certificate errors on the client side.
