No, outlook is not web based. I’m using it now, and it is a regular GUI , not a web-based GUI .

Well, if that’s the case. I’ll either stick to the windows mail app or just use Google’s site to check mail. I think Outlook is web based. I used outlook 2010.

Guess I'll be looking for another email program soon.  Too bad as

Thunderbird has worked great with nvda for many years.
