Outlook

What is Outlook?

Outlook is a desktop app for the Pokki platform that runs as an embedded HTML5 program within the Pokki mobile app-like interface. The Software automatically collects usage information with respect to particular Pokki Apps.

About  (from SweetLabs)

Outlook is a webmail service service from Microsoft formally known as Hotmail that delivers a more modern, rich, and connected email experience. The Outlook desktop app for Pokki allows you to access your email, voicemail, and instant messages one-click away from your Windows taskbar.

Overview

The most used version is v1.0.4, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software installer includes 27 files and is usually about 98.57 MB (103,356,947 bytes). HostAppServiceUpdater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
