Outlook – Minimizing Screen Items

Sometimes there isn’t a lot of room in Outlook to see everything when using the reading pane, especially if you have a smaller monitor or are using a laptop. Here are a few tricks to free up space.

Finding all the emails from a sender in Outlook

Let’s say that a certain boss I report to asks me about an email she sent me, and I’m desperately trying to find it so I don’t look dumber than normal. This Outlook trick can quickly filter down all my emails to only the items she sent me.

Retrieving deleted emails with the Undo feature

Sandra shared this one with me today, and neither of us had thought about using Undo in this fashion. But it works really well for getting an email back that you inadvertently sent to the Deleted Items folder (assuming you use Undo right after you did the delete).

Outlook – Quick Access Toolbar

Free tech books and documents from Microsoft!

It’s that time of year again!

Each year, Eric Ligman from Microsoft has a blog entry that posts links to a LARGE collection of FREE ebooks on Microsoft technology. There’s no catch, it’s all legal, and it’s simply a “thank you” to everyone who is a Microsoft customer or partner. They are full versions of the titles, they are not time-bombed, etc. They are really and truly FREE for downloading.
