E-mail Program

sasha blaskovich
Hi,
I recently bought your Open Office software CD on Amazon.ca and need to know if there is an Open Office E-mail program similar to the MS Outlook program?
Thanks,
Regards,
Sasha

Sasha, OO is free for anyone to down load.
No, there is no email client for a Office program.
You can use Outlook or Thunderbird, etc.

Sasha,

To add to Wade's statement...

OO is free for anyone to download and should be downloaded from the
official website, https://www.openoffice.org/

Click on the "I want to download Apache OpenOffice" link to get to the
download page.

No registration required.
Return to the page as often as you like to check for a new version.
Download the new version, again for free, when it is available on the
download page.

Thank you very much!  It is very sad that there are vultures out there that are selling this freeware!
I hope they are providing a kickback from their sales....

Re: E-mail Program

Alan Boba-2
You're welcome, Sasha.

Some additional information for you to consider.

Yes, some are simply profiting without contributing. However some people
have limited / no online access. Sellers that provide physical media,
DVD/USB, are providing a worthwhile service for them.

The other point, OpenOffice is "open source software". Not "freeware".
There are distinctions. Most often, freeware comes with other unwanted or
unneeded software that continually requests the user to upgrade to paid
version or to buy some additional product. A nag that is not helpful and,
if the nag is followed, can lead to undesirable problems on the pc.

When you search for software I suggest including the phrase "open source",
with the quotes, in your search. You will find many useful programs
provided in the same manner as OpenOffice.

e.g.
Audacity - sound file editing
GIMP, Krita - image editing and creation
OpenShot - video editing
Thunderbird - email
Calibre - ebook library and management
Gramps - geanalogical research software
etc.

That was very helpful.  The distinction is now very clear.
Is there an Open Source PDF Editor, like Adobe Pro?

Re: E-mail Program

In reply to this post by sasha blaskovich
No open source PDF editors that I am aware of.

Regarding this particular question it is important to understand the
requirement. Many people I have supported have asked for a PDF editor.
Getting them to define what they actually want to do often determines that
the features of Adobe Acrobat Reader or Foxit Reader, among others, will
meet their requirements.

If the requirements include changing text (adding, removing, reflowing) in
an existing PDF, controlling how others can use the document (prohibit
select and copy text, open to a certain page, prevent modification, etc)
then yes, a PDF editor would be required.

If the requirements include highlighting, marking out, underscoring
existing text, applying a digital signature, adding comments, then Adobe
Acrobat Reader or Foxit Reader both will meet the requirements. If the
requirement is to create a PDF document then OpenOffice programs can be
used to do that along with other methods, e.g. Foxit Reader includes a PDF
"printer". Select it as the target printer and instead of a page coming out
of your physical printer, a PDF document is created.

Creating a PDF is a function of the Operating System and printer driver.

Hi Alan,
THank you so much for your answer!!
From your below, I need it for exactly the following:
"If the requirements include changing text (adding, removing, reflowing) in
an existing PDF, controlling how others can use the document (prohibit
select and copy text, open to a certain page, prevent modification, etc)
then yes, a PDF editor would be required."

Re: E-mail Program

Alan Boba-2
You're welcome.

Some options for a PDF editor include Adobe's PDF editor, Foxitsoftware's
Phantom PDF, and Qoppa's PDF Studio Standard. There's others. These are the
ones I'm most familiar with.

Adobe's product is a subscription. My understanding is that when the
subscription expires the product will no longer work, can't even open the
program. Adobe also sells a perpetual license for their 2017 product. For
the 2017 product all the features work all the time. For myself, I wouldn't
pay full license price for something that's already three years old and
won't get any updates.

Foxitsoftware's Phantom PDF Standard is sold as a perpetual license with
upgrades for one year. Cost is about 90% of a one year subscription for
Adobe Acrobat Standard DC. The difference being, after the year is up, all
features continue to work.

Qoppa's PDF Studio Standard is sold as a perpetual license with upgrades
for one year. If a new release comes out within a certain time after your
purchase, nine months I think, you're entitled to the new release, so an
upgrade may become available during the license term, not just updates.
It's about 60% of the cost of Adobe's one year subscription. I've used
Qoppa on Linux for years and generally purchase a new license about every
third year. It's met all my advanced PDF needs nicely. I've never used the
Windows version. The license may be used on two devices.
