In Outlook for Mac 2011 Essential Training, author Alicia Katz Pollock provides a comprehensive overview of the full-featured email, calendar, and scheduling application from Microsoft. The course covers the key fundamentals of the program, including sending and receiving email, creating and managing contacts, and scheduling tasks and appointments. It also covers Outlook 2011 organizational features such as the Media Browser, Conversation view, My Day, the Scrapbook, and more.
As you are looking at your Inbox, there will be times when Arrange By or your other methods of sorting emails won't be enough. Filters allow you to narrow down the messages to show just the ones that fits your needs. The Filter button is on the right-side of the Home Ribbon. Click on the little drop-down arrow at its right to view your options. For example, if I only want to see my Unread Messages, select it from this list. What makes filters special is that they are cumulative. Now that I can see just my unread messages, I can further narrow them down to just the ones that also have attachments.
I have many other options as well. To remove my filters, I can just click on the Filter button or at the bottom of the drop-down, I can select Clear All Filters and all the messages will reappear. Of all the email management tools in Outlook, filters are the simplest way of sifting through your messages to find ones that meet multiple criteria.
