Perhaps you can run it under Wine or CrossOver, but I'd just use a native Linux email client.

Hi summit dash,

Microsoft doesn't make Outlook for Linux. You might be able to install using wine, but that's something I haven't, nor do I want to try. I use Evolution for my email client (and Contacts, Calendar, etc.), and it works just fine. Is there a specific reason you need to use Outlook?

Why? Because my employer and my clients are gastroenterologists.
