Additional Outlook tips I find helpful: highlight email, hit Crtl and d – keystroke to delete highlighted email. very quick. Junk rules – right click message, select "block sender" Be aware of sender addresses that use random changes in address to evade this maneuver. You can select a term that always appears in their address and use that to trigger Junk filing. Be careful about trying to unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link in the email unless you know the sender is legitimate – this can be used to confirm your email address and sell it onwards. Great tips!

Awesome tips! For those still feeling stressed out because of the burdens of email, there is a brand new 1-hour class available in Rochester through the Quality Academy. To register, search My Learning for QA: Taking control of your email. All staff are welcome to attend.

I also have separate folders for different people or departments by creating a rule for it; for example all emails from my bosses name go to a folder I named the Boss, all suite scheduler goes to my schedule folder, all my service requesters go to that a folder called service requests etc… I work in the float pool I would have a hard time remembering what each place had for rules if I did not do this all the time.

I use the Categorize function to help me keep my projects organized. Choose "All Categories" to Rename colors to something meaningful. Then as you review emails, click on Categorize to choose the category it belongs in. You can change your view to group emails by category. It helps when searching for them later as well.

I agree with using categories. This has been a life saver for me. I created high, medium, low, and waiting for follow-up categories. I don't keep any emails in my saved or deleted folders either. I organize them by topic which also matches my drive in which additional information is kept about such topics.

This is a great tip. If you're like me, out of sight is out of mind, however, so I only use it for emails that I have to receive but don't have to act on (so I can't just have them stop sending to me). To draw attention to messages that I have to act on, I leave them in the Inbox and use conditional formatting (View–>View Settings–>Conditional Formatting…) to make any message from the people I support bold and bright blue, for example.

On #3: Just be aware that Outlook/Exchange doesn't necessarily send a delayed email at the time you choose. It will send it at the first time it can /on or after/ that time. So you can't count on it to send something at exactly 7:55 to serve as a reminder, say. It might get sent at 7:55 or at 8:00 or, in odd cases, not even until a later day. It depends on a whole bunch of factors involving your Outlook settings, the Exchange server settings, and the circumstances; if you need to know, you should experiment a little and/or look up the details online.

Pretty good tips! I find that having the notifications on helps me focus on my work: if I had them turned off I would be checking for new emails very often.
