Make Reddit look like Outlook

Office for Mere Mortals helps people around the world get more from Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. Delivered once a week. free.


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.

The ribbon and buttons are almost all for show, they don’t do anything.  Same with the Favorites and Outlook Data File parts on the left.

The Inbox ‘folders’ take you to various parts of Reddit: Front Page, gaming, pix and ask reddit.

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

For more details on the features in the current release check out this video

The designers intention is for people to host their own version of this site.  The source code is available at Github.
