Microsoft Outlook came into being in 1997. It was integrated into Microsoft Office and was almost like a personal information manager (PIM) combining e-mail, contacts and calendar with tasks, notes, and a journal. New features kept on being added to newer versions of Microsoft office.

The latest is a feature with which you can pay bills directly through your Outlook inbox. The structure will use Microsoft Pay to check and make the payments directly from Outlook. For the time being, it is only working with specific payment services from the US such as Braintree, Stripe, FreshBooks and Intuit.

The feature won't be available right away. It will be launched in phases with a small batch of users at a time in the US. Though Microsoft is not making a profit from these payments, it might give users a new reason to use Outlook instead of any other email service.

Gmail is currently the leader in email service followed by Outlook.
