In order to increase the speed of opening e-mail messages and reduce risks involved with opening of unsolicited messages, you can switch Outlook to the plain text reading mode.
Outlook can display either the number of unread e-mails or the total number of e-mails in a folder alongside the folder name.
Outlook rules could be exported and imported from file. E.g., you can export rules to a file, send this file as an e-mail attachment or place it on a network share (or a local share) for backup purposes or to allow other users to access it.
If you are waiting for the important e-mail from someone or need to be informed when your boss sends you an e-mail, create an alert rule and give a rest to your brain. You will be informed promptly by alert as soon as Outlook receives such kind of e-mail.
Use Outlook rules to copy all incoming messages to the specified folder. E.g., copy all e-mails with OfficeToolTips tips subject to the OfficeToolTips folder.
Use Outlook rules to move all incoming messages to the specified folder. E.g., copy all e-mails from [email protected] to the OfficeToolTips folder.
Outlook uses two features to resolve and complete names entered into email messages: AutoComplete and Autoresolution.
Although Outlook automatically creates Data Files as needed when you add accounts, you might want to add your own Data Files (.pst - files) to a profile. For example, perhaps you use an Exchange Server account for your primary Outlook store, but want a set of personal folders to serve as an archive; or perhaps you have an Exchange Server account and are adding a POP3 account.
Outlook enables you to specify default fonts to use for different situations when dealing with e-mail. Additionally you can individually configure default font settings for composing new e-mail and replying and forwarding.
For replies and forwarded messages, you can choose to attach the original text, to include and indent the text, or to add a prefix to each line of the original message or reply without including the original text.
