Whats everyones thoughts on using outlook? Do you have a option to use just your hotmail email and calendar or do you have to use outlook? Is outlook soley just in case you have multiple emails and calendars you want?

If you use an exchange email account it uses the Outlook icon, I am not sure other than some specific functions that might come from an exchange email account such as searching your exchange mailbox whether any real difference exists.
Of course I am talking about accounts on the phone not the desktop Outlook.

i use outlook EVERY day at work .......
and i also use LIVE for my personal use.
both work very well, outlook does have a more professional feel to it ( feels more organized and clean ) going compare to LIVE or hotmail.
to add does accounts to your cell : E-mail HUB --> click on triple dots --> add e-mail account.If your looking for Information, be sure to check out: WindowsPhone: Getting started!

For WP7, it's quite snappy and efficient.

started with outlook many moons ago, but first palm device convinced me to switch to the palm calendar/pim mgr so I stayed with Palm desktop. Don't use outlook at work either - that platform is covered by GroupWise.
Windows Live and Yahoo mail Plus handle contacts.
maybe after windows 8 comes out I'll look at Outlook again.A Palm Pre Refugee giving my HTC Arrive a pat on the back- cuz it's choking!

If you don't need Outlook, just use Windows Live Mail to manage your stuff. You can use Windows Live with Outlook via the Connector. Outlook blows Windows Live Mail away.
Anyone who is serious about scheduling, I'd recommend Outlook even for a Windows Live User, especially if you find yourself at your desktop or laptop a lot...

L:ive Hotmail calenda is getting more improvements in the near future gin. It is becoming r robust and wth the addition of to dos to the native calendar on the phone its getting closer IMHO in functionality with outlook. I have got the inox for live hotmail with the same basic folders I have in outlook so I am thinking that I may move all my email into hotmail instead iof al through outlook.

The benefit of outlook isn't the functionality per se, but the actual application. Windows Live mail is more than capable for non outlook users and it was built for Windows Live services.
If you use Live Messenger, it allows mail ti be pushed to Live mail similar ti an Exchange account, as well.
