Hiri is the Microsoft Outlook Client For Linux

Microsoft Outlook Requirement

As part of my Ubuntu as Daily work OS goal; I have to be able to receive corporate emails, view and set calendar appointments and access the global corporate address book. To do that, I will need an email client that works with my company’s Microsoft Exchange server. I searched the web for software and I ran into two options:

Option 1: Microsoft Office 365 a web-based software.
Option 2: Hiri a standalone email client.

I went for the latter because it offers a perpetual license that I can also use on my Mac.

Download and Setup

I bought Hiri using a 60% discount voucher. They sometimes offer discount vouchers to their website visitors, you might get lucky.
