Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Ignoring a conversation, part of Outlook 2013: Efficient Email Management.
- One way to reduce the amount of time…you spend reviewing email is to…get less email to begin with.…To remove yourself from conversations…that you no longer need to be a part of.…In this instance one of my colleagues,…Lisa Marlee, asks me if my admin could work with her…on logistics for an event, and I said, "Sure."…So she wrote to Colleen, my administrative assistant,…and copied me, and also copied her boss, Jodean.…Now Colleen's writing back. They're well launched.…I don't need to be part of this conversation any longer.…
So what I can do is I can ignore this.…I select the conversation on the Home tab…in the Delete Group, click Ignore, and I can choose…to suppress this message in the future by turning this off.…If you don't do this often, you might want to be reminded…exactly what it does when you click Ignore,…and I'm going to Ignore the Conversation.…Notice that those messages are now gone.…It's possible that this is most useful in a scenario…where you have colleagues who just…copy everybody on everything.…
