Hi Vasu,

Outbound message in Workflow: Outbound messaging is part of the workflow rule functionality in Salesforce. Workflow rules watch for specific kinds of field changes and trigger automatic Salesforce actions, such as sending email alerts, creating task records, or sending an outbound message.

Outbound message in Web Service: Outbound Webservice is something that you publish from salesforce org and 3rd party tools consume it to get data/ record from your salesforce org.

Please let us know if you are looking for anything else.

Kindly mark this as solved if it's resolved.

Best Regards,
