    Seems to be a nice app, gonna try it. I also tried Screen Calendar Outlook to schedule in Outlook while displaying tasks and calendar on the desktop and liked this tool very much. It has much more options than Desktask, but it’s shareware, not freeware. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m giving this a shot – I recently became obsessed with cleaning up outlook. I had gone more than 8 months without setting up outlook “rules” and cleaning out my general “inbox.” Now I’m going to delete it, or put it in a folder, and address it. Also, trying to do all of my tasks on outlook – none of this “assorted pads of paper” trash that I’ve been practicing for years on end. Nifty idea to put outlook on the ole desktop… now we’ll see if I can change my personal habits to utilize this tool. Thanks!
