Subject: Re: Email inbox
Just another option, if you are using Outlook. If I have an email I want to follow-up on later, I do the following:
Within the Outlook inbox, I highlight the message. I then use the context key to open the menu and select the follow-up option, which opens a sub-menu of choices. The choices range from tomorrow, to next week, to a custom option where you can type in the date. Flagged messages are then noted by subject line on the Task List, which you get to with Control number row 4. Since I already use the Task List for other reminders, it’s all in one place. I also use this method if I have sent someone an email and I want to be sure I get a reply by a certain date. I believe you can do the same thing in Contacts if you want to remember to follow-up with a person at some point.
Thank you for everyones help.
The (f12) key works perfectly.
Hi, Nino. If I have an email which I know I will want to act on in the future, and know it may be difficult to find, here’s what I do. I use F12 to save the email as a file. Once it saves, the name resembles the subject line, and it is usually saved as a file in Documents with an .msg extension. If you click on the file, it opens outlook, and you are in the body of the email you saved. You can do all the things you can normally do with an email, including, reply, forward, etc.
I was wondering if anybody new how to move the posission of an email that is quite far down on the lists of emails in the inbox.
Is there a way to move that message further up in the list of emails?
I hope I explained it properly.
