Learn to mark messages as read or unread, flag messages for follow-up, specify the follow-up action such as call or reply, set a reminder, locate mail in the For Follow Up folder, view flagged mail on the To-Do Bar, mark flagged mail complete, apply categories to mail, create categories, rename categories, sort messages by subject or date, sort mail folders by conversation, add new local folders, move messages between folders, configure junk e-mail settings, add safe senders or block senders, clean up messages, ignore messages or conversations, and set attachment reminder options. Master these MOS objectives as a part of your prep for the Microsoft Office Specialist PowerPoint 2013 exam.
