    I have Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 at work. I want to add Outlook to my Droid so I can access my work emails from my phone. What's the best way to achieve this?

    "Outlook" doesn't mean anything. Outlook is an email client that supports many different types of mail servers. It's the type of email account or mail server that matters as your device will connect to the mail server, not your desktop install of Outlook. You can't have Outlook on your Android device as Outlook doesn't run on Android.

    Most companies using Outlook tend to use Exchange but that's not a safe assumption to make in all cases. Does your employer use Exchange? Do they offer ActiveSync? Or any other forms of access (OWA, IMAP, POP)? The answer to these questions will make a difference in the options you want to consider.

    The "corporate app" that came preloaded on my Droid allows me to receive, reply, delete, and move mail into separate folders quite nicely.
