The following are several additions to Outook2003 that I found useful .
This allows you to have three panes displayed
|1.||View / Reading Pane|
|2.||You have the option for Right, Bottom or Off|
|3.||This will allow you to have a left pane that shows the Outlook bar, the middle pane that shows your e-mail from, to etc, and a left hand pane that shows the body of the text.|
There is now some intelligent junk-mail filtering as part of Outlook. This is turned on by default and can be configured in several ways.
|1.||Go to Tools / Options|
|2.||In the E-Mail section, click on the Junk Mail button|
|3.||From here you can select the level of security you want|
You can also add a a sender’s e-mail address to your Blocked Senders List
|1.||Right click on an e-mail from a sender you want to block|
|2.||Select Junk Mail / Add Sender to Blocked Senders List|
|3.||You can also add an entire domain to be blocked|
How many times have you had and e-mail you needed to follow up on but lost it in all the other e-mails. I’ve been actually needing to drag shortcuts to folders on my desktop to keep track.
Now you can easily flag e-mail you need to follow up on.
|1.||Right click on the e-mail|
|2.||Select Follow up|
|3.||Select the color of the flag you want to use|
|4.||Now the e-mail has that color flag|
|5.||To make it easy to find all your follow-up e-mail, they are also listed in the For Follow Up folder|
|6.||To clear the flag, select Follow up / Clear Flag|
You can now maintain separate calendars which you can easily display side by side. So for example, you can have your main Work calendar. In addition you can have a Family calendar. You can keep separate appointments in each and only display the calendar(s) you want.
|1.||Click on Calendar in the Navigation Pane|
|2.||Right click on Calendar and select New Folder|
|3.||Give it the name of the new calendar. In the following example there is already one called Family|
|4.||You can then check the calendar(s) you want to view.|
|5.||They will be displayed side-by-side showing the events on the same date and time.|
Here are some keyboard shortcuts that may be useful.
|CTRL+1 for MailCTRL+2 for Calendar
CTRL+3 for Contacts
CTRL+4 for Tasks
CTRL+5 for Notes
CTRL+6 for Folder List
CTRL+7 for Shortcuts
Now it is very easy to change how much information is displayed when viewing Contacts
|1.||Click on Contacts in the Navigation Pane|
|2.||Under Current View, select whichever one you want to use.|
