Add sport schedules or other special holidays and events to your Calendar

I’ve already added the Holidays to Outlook but I was wondering if I could also easily add other special days and sport schedules to my Calendar.

For instance, I’d like to add the moon phases, the Formula 1 calendar and a countdown to the end of the year.

Can I do this?

Add shortcuts to your own locations in the Save, Open, Attach File and Insert Picture dialogs

When using the Save, Open, Attach File and Insert Picture dialogs in Outlook (and other Office applications), I usually need to browse quite a bit to actually get to the location where I want to be.

Would it be possible to add shortcuts to my own locations in these dialogs?

Traveling between time zones

I frequently travel between different time zones. Sometimes I change my computer’s clock to match the time zone that I’m in and sometimes I don’t (depends a bit on how long I’m staying).

This can be quite confusing sometimes and I often worry if all my meetings and appointments are still scheduled on the correct time.

What is the best way to configure Outlook in this situation?

Quickly collapse all opened subfolders

I sort many of my messages into folders and subfolders by using rules. While I do use a Search Folder to keep track of all the new messages, the new messages still expand the folder list which is fairly large.

The result is that the Navigation Pane looks quite cluttered and it pushes my other mailboxes down and out of view and I need to scroll down to see them.

Is there a way to prevent these subfolders from being opened or to quickly collapse them all at once?

Hiding details of all or some appointments and meetings

When co-workers plan a meeting and are looking at free/busy times, they can see the details of any appointment if they hover the mouse pointer over the appointment.

Is there a way to block that?

Watermark background (Confidential, Do not Forward, Draft, etc…)

I’d like to add a watermark to my message which says “confidential” as an extra visual reminder.

Does Outlook hold such an option?

Flagging emails and default reminder times

When I flag an email to be followed up upon for Today and add a reminder time, the reminder is set to 4 in the afternoon by default.
For any other flag it sets an alarm at 8 in the morning.

How can I change these default reminder times?

Outlook and Two-Step Verification for iCloud (finally enabled!)

With the recent news about iCloud accounts being compromised, I was investigating what I can do against this myself.

You mentioned that Outlook.com and Gmail accounts can be protected with Two-Step Verification.

Can I do the same for my iCloud account in Outlook?

Show if a Read Receipt is being requested or not

Every now and then I receive an email message which requests me to send a Read Receipt. While I don’t mind sending one, sometimes the timing is a bit unfortunate.

For instance, when I work late at night or quickly check my email during the holiday. Also, for one mailbox I’m only a delegate and I do not want to send out the Read Receipt for my manager.

Is there a method to easily see beforehand if an email holds a Read Receipt request or some way to send out the Read Receipt at a later time?

Show more calendar months in the Date Navigator

There is a little monthly calendar in Outlook’s To-Do Bar and also within the Calendar Navigation itself where you can click on a date and then it will open up your calendar at this date.

This is very useful to me but when nearing the end of the month, it is becoming less useful as less future dates become visible.

Is there any way that I can set it to show more months?
