We are excited to release a new “bundle” to protect users from common Outlook mistakes that cost individuals and organizations a lot of wasted time and money.
Send Guard for Outlook detects common mistakes in emails as they are being sent out. If any mistakes are detected then the user is prompted for confirmation or changes before the email is sent out.
SendGuard is actually a collection of several different Guards and is licensed (priced) according to the Guards that users want enabled.
Two of the most popular guards are Send Confirm and Reply Guard. The new bundle provides an option to activate these two Guards if you do not want the full Send Guard.
What is Send Confirm for Outlook?
Send Confirm for Outlook protects your company from wrongly typed email addresses and accidental disclosure of sensitive information to the wrong people.
An AOL survey revealed that 32 percent of respondents had accidentally sent an email to the wrong person. In a more recent survey 78% of respondents said that they had accidentally sent emails to the wrong people at some time.
Send Confirm integrates inside Outlook and prompts users for confirmation before emails are sent out.
Send Confirm also recognizes that the greatest risk is if the information is sent to the wrong organization and therefore highlights the domain in red in its prompts.
What is Reply Guard for Outlook?
Reply Guard is used by many of our clients to reduce the amount of unnecessary Reply-Alls that take place in an organization.
Research has shown that Unneeded Reply-Alls results in many hours of lost productivity in organizations.
They also make the senders look unprofessional and train recipients to ignore emails from the offenders.
Reply Guard for Outlook integrates inside Outlook and displays a message similar to the following when Reply All is clicked on an email.
In addition to warning the user that Reply All was clicked, the prompt allows users to immediately change the recipients without having to go back to the email.
Send Confirm and Reply Guard have special features for deployment and support in corporate environments.
- All messages/prompts can be customized based on corporate/legal guidelines and policies.
- Reply Guard can be deployed with customized settings using Windows Server technology
- Settings can be locked to prevent changes by users (administrators can still make changes if required)
- Discount Volume Pricing
- Priority support options
Together Send Confirm and Reply Guard will keep your organization protected from the mistakes that are too easy to make in Outlook.
Send Confirm and Reply Guard are part of the Send Guard for Outlook. Download SendGuard and eliminate common email mistaking today.

Do you know where your emails are saved? Are you sure they’re being backed up? You may be surprised to find out that your emails are not where you expect them to be.
In this post, I’ll show you how you can find out where your Outlook data is stored so that you can ensure that they are actually part of your backup plan.
How does Outlook save emails on your computer?
Outlook does NOT save each email as a separate file. Instead it saves all the emails into one PST file (or if you’re using Exchange or Office 365… one OST file).
All your emails are in one file. If you lose that one file, you lose all your emails!
- That’s not strictly true because you can have multiple files e.g. one for old emails and one for current emails, but the general idea still applies. Your emails are stored in a few files and if you lose one file, you will lose hundreds or even thousands of emails.
It is important that you know where these files so that you can back them up regularly.
Where are Outlook’s data files stored?
Depending on the version of Outlook you are using (and whether you are using POP3, IMAP, Exchange or Office 365), Outlook will save your data in either Documents folder or the hidden appdata folder.
Luckily it is easy to find where.
In Outlook 2010 or later, click the File tab, then click Info in the left pane. Select Account Settings and then Account Settings again. Then click the Data Files tab.
In Outlook 2007 and older versions, click Tools – Options on the command bar. Then click the Data Files tab.
All your data files will be listed as shown in the diagram.
Make sure that you back them up regularly and your emails will be safe.
Studies clearly show that people who do not multi-task can focus for longer periods of time and feel also less stressed. But emails makes it difficult to NOT multi-task, particularly if you get notified each time an email comes in. This post shows you 4 things you need to can do to be more productive with emails without multi-tasking.
Turn OFF email Notifications
Be default Outlook displays a little notification in the bottom right hand corner of your screen every time an email comes in. It may also play a sound or show a little envelope icon in the taskbar.
Unless your work requires real-time notification of emails, we recommend that you turn off ALL email notifications.
Click File and then Options.
Click on the mail tab.
Scroll down to the Mail Arrival section and make sure that all the boxes are un-ticked as shown below.
Have Email Processing Scheduled in Your Calendar
Try and have a fixed time where you go through your Inbox and delete out stuff that doesn’t need to be there, respond to important emails etc.
This is your main email time during the day. Don’t worry… you will still get to see emails again later in the day.
Turn off Outlook when doing non-email related work
Many users turn to emails looking for a distraction when they are at a point in their work that is difficult or requires a decision. They turn to their Inbox hoping to find an excuse to avoid what they really need to work on.
You’re less likely to do this if your Outlook is closed… and even if you do, the time Outlook takes to start up will remind you to go back to your work.
Reward yourself by going to your Inbox when you finish a reasonable chunk of work… or when you finish a particular piece of work
Even if email is a distraction, a lot of real work gets done using it.
I go back to my Inbox roughly around once every one or two hours. This give me my email-fix as well as giving me the opportunity to respond to anything important that may have come up while I was doing other work.
Try these 4 quick tips today. They won’t solve all your email problems but they will put you more in control. You should find you’re getting more work done, feeling less stressed and still getting your emails answered.
