Outlook 2007 is the latest full-featured emailing and contact management software from the Microsoft Office suite. Instructor Sean Conrad explains each of Outlook 2007's components and new features in detail, from the basics of the main interface to the more advanced elements of the application. Sean covers the Office button and the Quick Access toolbar as well as the ins and outs of reading and writing email. He delves into using the advanced filtering features to prioritize incoming mail and avoid unwanted spam or files. Sean also explains how to integrate Outlook's Calendar and Notes features for increased productivity.
In addition to dragging e-mail messages to move them from one folder to another. You can also drag the e-mail messages to create other items based on them. So why would you do that? Well, I just got it in an e-mail here about IP security and VPN and I want to remember to do something about that. So, I'd like to, say, put an entry in my calendar to remember to call this fellow, so I can drag and drop the e-mail message into my Calendar. It copies the e-mail address here, and what we're doing is creating a calendar entry. We're creating it for today; I'm just going to Save & Close quickly here, so we can go into the Calendar and you can see, here is the name of e-mail, so this is the calendar entry I just created by dragging and dropping that e-mail.
Now also note, the original e- mail is still here in my Inbox. So when you drag an e-mail into another item on the Task pane, and drop it, just creates another item based on that e-mail, but does not delete or move the original e-mail. So I can create a contact for that person by dragging it to the Contact e-mail. It fills in the information it has, and I could do the rest here also. In the Notes it puts the text of the e-mail message itself. Just going to Save & Close that. I can do the same thing with the Task to create Task based on that, and I can even just drag it and put it in the Notes to create a note.
So extra functionality here to drag your e-mail messages and drop them to other places on the Task list to create other items based on that e-mail.
