It is easier to send attachments in Outlook 2016

By standss - Comments ( 0 ) Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

One of the best improvements in Outlook 2016 is how much easier it is to add attachments to emails.

The designers of Outlook 2016 realised that you will usually want to send a file that you have recently worked on, and have designed this into the latest version of Outlook.

Here’s what you need to do.

Write your email as you normally would.

Click the attach file icon (paper-clip) on the ribbon. You will be presented with a list of the 12 most recent files that you have used in other programs (PDFs, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, plain text files etc).

Click on one of those files if appropriate (it usually is for me). Otherwise, click on Browse this PC or Browse Web Location which appear at the bottom of the list to select a different file.

This simple improvement saves me a lot of time every day as I find that 90% of the files that I need to send are there on the Recent Items list for me to pick.

If you have your own tricks for working better with attachments or know of other time-saving improvements in the latest versions of Outlook, let us know by leaving a comment below.

By standss - Comments ( 0 ) Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Many users have started tracking opens and clicks on the emails they send out using Email Merge Pro for Outlook. While EmailMerge can use this information directly for remerging (sending only to people who opened or clicked etc) and the EmailCaddie website has summary and detail reports, you may also want to export the tracking information in CSV format.

Here’s what you need to do.

Go to the EmailCaddie website and login.

Click on the Mail Merge tab to display a list of all the merges that you have sent out.

Click on the name of the merge that you are interested in to be taken to the Merge Details page.

Select the data you wish to see using the drop-down (Everyone, people who opened the email, people who clicked on a particular link etc).

Click the Export to CSV link to download a file to your desktop.

You can now open the CSV file in Excel or import it into other systems if you need to.

If you’re an existing EmailMerge for Outlook user, find out more about tracking your email merges here.

How to Stop Legitimate Emails from Ending Up in the Junk Folder

By standss - Comments ( 0 ) Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

Do you find that Outlook is incorrectly sending legitimate emails to your junk mail folder? Here are a few tips to help your junk mail filter work properly.

These tips are based on the Safe Senders List. The Safe Senders list is basically a list of email addresses (or domains) that you say should NOT be treated as junk.

Change Settings to trust emails in your Contacts list and to trust people who you have sent emails to

The first thing you need to do is to tell Outlook to trust email addresses that are in your Contact list. You can also tell Outlook to add people to your Safe Senders list anytime you send them an email (even if they are not in your contact list)

  1. Right click over any email in your Inbox.
  2. Click Junk and then Junk E-mail Options.
  3. Click on the Safe Senders tab.
  4. signature

  5. Tick the checkbox to “trust emails from my Contacts”.
  6. Tick the checkbox to “automatically add people I email to the Safe Senders List”.

Add people who end up in the Junk Mail folder to the Safe Senders List.

You will still find that some legitimate emails may end up in the Junk Emails folders. Here’s what you need to do to add them to the Safe Senders list.

  1. Go to your Junk Email folder.
  2. Right click over the email.
  3. Click Junk and then click Not Junk.
  4. signature

  5. Make sure that the “Always trust….” checkbox is ticked.
  6. Click OK.

The senders email address will be added to the Safe Senders list and the email will be moved to your Inbox too.

I hope that the tips in this post help you to not miss out on important emails because they ended up in the Junk Email folder.
