If you like Reddit but want to hide it from your boss, co-workers, partner etc then we’ve got a web site for you.  It makes Reddit look like Outlook Web Access (aka OWA).

Go to https://attaxia.github.io/MSOutlookit/ or http://pcottle.github.io/MSOutlookit/

There’s a web page with the latest Reddit posts in the familiar form of Microsoft Outlook.

Add a sub-reddit to that list from the New Email button on the ribbon.
