Is there any Outlook for Android? If not, should I use an IMAP or POP3 client for Android instead? Which one do you recommend?

IMAP is almost always better than POP3, as you have two-way synchronization. Android's built-in email applications (called Email) supports both IMAP and POP, it just depends on your email server. – Lie Ryan Oct 30 '10 at 14:23

You don't mention which phone or Android version you're using. On my Motorola Droid (Android 2.2) the built-in E-mail application allows me to connect to my employers Exchange server. When I created the account, I had three options for connecting: POP3, IMAP, and Exchange.

There are other e-mail clients out there that may also connect to Exchange.

I thought the built-in app was only for GMail accounts – Jader Dias Oct 31 '10 at 12:19
Gmail is a separate application. – Al E. Oct 31 '10 at 21:44

You could try K9 Mail. I use it for non-Exchange accounts and it works great, so I know it's a great email app in general. I believe it has the ability to connect to Exchange servers, too, so...there you go!
