Synchronizing email signatures between computers

I’m using Outlook on multiple computers and even though my emails sync beautifully between all my devices, my email Signatures do not.

While I could back them up and restore them manually onto another computer after each change, surely in the age of Cloud Based Computing there must be a better approach for this.

How can I synchronize my email Signatures between computers?

Empty Address Book and switching between Address Lists in OWA 2013

When addressing an email in OWA, I only see people from my own Contacts folder. However, I have plenty more Contacts in another folder and of course there is the Global Address List of our company with all the internal contacts.

The Contacts folder of my colleague is empty so opening the Address Book is currently completely useless to him.

How can I switch between all the address lists in my Address Book?
Is there also a way to change the default like you could in previous versions of OWA and within Outlook itself?

Add to Outlook Contacts option is missing

I received a message from a new contact and I wanted to add him to my Outlook contacts.

Usually, I just right click on the sender’s name in the Reading Pane and choose “Add to Outlook Contacts” which opens a new contact item with the name and email address already filled out. However, I found this option not available for this sender even though I don’t have him added as a contact yet.

How do I get this “Add to Outlook Contacts” option back?

OWA 2013 layout choice and optimizations for touch screens, tablets and smartphones

I have a laptop with a touch screen (actually, it is a Surface tablet) and also an iPad. When I use OWA on my iPad, it is optimized for touch input. For instance, some buttons are larger and there is an options bar at the bottom.

However, on my Surface, it always loads the mouse optimized version. This is true even when I detach the keyboard and use the Internet Explorer Modern App instead of the Desktop version.

Is there any way to get my Surface to load the touch optimized version of OWA as well?

Instantly backup pst-files via a right-click option

I regularly create manual backups of my pst-files and although it is easy enough, it is quite a lot of clicking to locate and browse to the needed folders.

As I usually do this when shutting down my PC, bringing down the amount of clicks needed to complete this process would encourage me not to skip it.

Is there any way to make it even easier and quicker to backup my pst-files?
