Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Working offline, part of Outlook 2013: Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts.
…We live in a connected society.…Whether we're sitting at the office or at home or in a hotel lobby somewhere, most…of us are connected to our email and our email is connected to an exchange server.…And that means that I have messages coming in all day long.…And it means that I have my emails that I sent immediately leaving my Outbox and…becoming sent items.…Sometimes this isn't what I want.…I'll give you two examples.…One possibility is that I'm doing a mail merge in Word, and…I actually don't want those messages to leave.…
I want them to be sent, to end up in my Outbox and I'd like to look at one or two.…Sample them at least, to make sure they're okay before they're sent on.…Another possibility is, I don't want email coming in.…I'm working on something, and even though I need to be in my calendar,…perhaps I'm doing a calendar schedule for our team.…And it's very intense.…I don't want new emails coming in.…I don't want them coming in because they'll show as delivered, but…more importantly, because they're going to bother me at that moment.…
