Daylite Mail Assistant for Outlook allows you to integrate the functionality known from the regular Daylite Mail Assistant for Apple Mail into Microsoft Outlook as part of our beta test.
In general our Daylite Mail Assistant for Outlook runs in all current Outlook versions on all supported platforms. However, depending on the Outlook version used, the plan chosen for Outlook and a possibly used self-hosted Exchange Server, an installation might not be possible. Since the Microsoft Outlook world is very complex and individually configurable, we cannot promise that the extension can be installed in your environment. Getting better information on different environments is also a goal of our public beta test.
Please understand that we can therefore only provide you with limited support in configuring your Outlook system.
