The five best add-ins for Outlook


Outlook is one of the programs that make up the Office suite and one of the programs that has given Microsoft the most satisfaction. Not for nothing is it one of the star programs in companies. But it can still be improved without having to pay for it. That is, through add-ons that significantly improve our performance compared to Outlook.

These add-ins improve Outlook but cannot be used through, that is, through the online version, but they are only compatible with the offline version of the program, we go the version of a lifetime.

Office at Work Mail Reply

This plugin adds the autoresponder functionality to our email manager. Through this add-on we can create standard responses and send them with two clicks, saving space and time. It is a very interesting complement, not only for the company but for any user who wants to get rid of email.

Evernote for Outlook

Even though Microsoft has OneNote, many users still use Evernote as their favorite note app. With this add-on we unite Outlook with Evernote, allowing the forwarding of notes or creating notes on the fly and reading emails.

Wunderlist for Outlook

This complement continues the line of the previous complement. But as many of you already know, Wunderlist focuses on offering lists of things (tasks, emails, appointments, etc ...) what we have to do or fulfill. On this occasion, this add-on connects Outlook with Wunderlist and allows us to carry out tasks such as sending emails or sending emails to task lists.


It seems that the world of gifs has reached email and instant messaging. Giphy is a complement that offers us the possibility of inserting and searching animated gifs. This will improve our emails, but it will also make them more fun. Everything will depend on the type of gifs we use.

Maps for Outlook

This complement is ideal for those who travel or work with this world as the complement makes Outlook more compatible with maps. To the point that we can not only work with maps and send them without leaving Outlook, but when sending us a physical address, the plugin recognizes it and shows you the address on a map.

Conclusion on add-ins for Outlook

These add-ins certainly improve Outlook productivity, but don't forget that this Office program has other native functions that we never use like the calendar, scheduling emails or simply connecting with other Office programs. In any case, it seems that Outlook is not a bad program to work with. Do not you think?
