What to do about Outlook.

Why would that change anything ? As long as you can still POP, IMAP and SMTP your messages, an internet messaging system is OS agnostic.
Main desktop: Debian GNU/Linux Jessie 64bit - MATE
(i5 2400@3.7GHz - 16GB DDR3 - HD6770 w/radeon driver - SSD+RAID1)
Safer than Dropbox

The domain the vendor operates out of shouldn't matter much
--a bigger general issue for all of us is the amount of data mining being done on all these sites (email (yahoo, gmail, hotmail/outlook) twitter, facebook )) and so on..
