A Brief overview of what to expect from this course

Section 1: Managing your Inbox through Outlook Views

Outlook views can help you switch the way your Inbox looks and make various aspects of email stand out at the click of a button. And the best part is that you can go back to your favorite Inbox with another click. Outlook views can greatly enhance the speed at which you address your email.


When you look at a crowded Inbox, you often wish to have certain email stand out from the rest. Emails marked directly to you for instance, may be something that you may want to attend to first as against emails on which you were marked as a copy. Or emails sent by a particular person, or from a particular email address, or sent with attachments - the options are endless, the possibilities limitless. And using Outlook views, you can switch between them instantly.


User defined fields are like supercharging Outlook - add fields of information that are normally not available in Outlook. Add a field to display the Age of an email, add email tags, add checkmarks for emails to be reviewed later - all these and more can be created by you by following a few simple techniques.


Search folders are a way to isolate email that meets certain rules - and then work on them in a separate but Virtual folder. The folder is virtual - so while you have all the convenience of working on those emails in a focused manner, you are actually working on them right within your Inbox, without duplication or worrying about version control.

Section 2: Speed up Sending Mail by Re-using resources

Quick Parts are like Canned Email - reusing snippets of information with a shortcut. These powerful gems have the capacity to store text, watermarks, text boxes, graphics, tables and more.


Learn some quick and handy keyboard shortcuts to cut down the time spent composing and editing mail
