Getting the Outlook Email Gadget

How to install the Outlook Email Gadget

The Outlook Email Gadget is a free Outlook Add-in that exposes Method screens inside the user’s Outlook email client (web and desktop). This means you will have access to Method data from within your Outlook inbox.

Be sure not to confuse the new Outlook Email Gadget with Method’s legacy Outlook Plug-in (for Method:Classic users). The new Gadget integrates with the Outlook Server - they are very different solutions.
