How to Purchase Outlook
By Sara Williams
Microsoft Outlook is an Office application, either bundled with a copy of Microsoft Office or purchased separately. Copies of Outlook and the full Office suite are available for purchase via Microsoft's online store.
Where to Buy It
Microsoft's online store at MicrosoftStore.Com sells current versions of both Outlook and Office. Outlook is sold by itself under "Office 2010 Stand-Alone Programs." Clicking on "details" brings up more specific product information and pricing options. Buying Office Home and Business 2010 or Office Professional 2010 gets you Outlook as well. Outlook does not come with Office Home and Student 2010.
Prices & Payment
Outlook 2010 costs $139.99 for any of the three delivery options. Enhanced versions do not exist, so there is no tiered pricing. The store only takes credit cards--Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Discover.
The same price gets you either a download with no back-up disc option, a download with a free back-up disc, or a disc shipped to your home. Discs are shipped from Microsoft's store by United Parcel Service (UPS).
