Deleting a Meeting Invitation doesn’t delete the Meeting itself from the Calendar

Over the week, I’ve received various Meeting Invitations for meetings I do not intend to go to as these were multiple timeslots for basically the same gathering.

I’ve deleted all these invitations but upon checking my Calendar, I still see them there as Tentative meetings.

Why haven’t these been removed as well and how can I prevent this in the future?

Two or more icons for Outlook on the Taskbar

I just installed Office 2013 and one thing I noticed is that Outlook now has two icons on the Taskbar when it is open. If the program is closed, only one icon is displayed.

Any additional Outlook windows also group to this icon so basically the first Outlook is only being used to open Outlook.

How can I get rid of this extra Outlook icon on the Taskbar?

Print a message with today’s date and time added to the top or bottom of the printout

For archiving or approving purposes (especially with Drafts), we need to print out e-mail messages with the current date and time on it.

I believe Outlook 2003 did this automatically but Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013 no longer do this. Instead these versions only print with the sent/received date and no date at all for Draft messages.

Is there any way to “restamp” the date and time on a message when printing?

MailTo links do not open Outlook

When clicking on a mailto link, Outlook used to get opened and I could write my email. Now, when I click on a mailto link, it brings up the Gmail webpage while I don’t even have a Gmail account.

I’ve already made sure that Outlook has been set as my default mail client in Windows, but mailto links still bring me to Gmail.

How can I get mailto links to open with Outlook again?

Prompt to save a copy or not when sending emails

For most of the messages that I send, I’d prefer to keep a copy in my Sent Items which is also the understandable default in Outlook.

However, in some cases, I find it not really necessary keep a copy. For instance, when resending or forwarding a message or when a message only contains a (larger) attachment.

For these instances, would it be possible to have Outlook prompt me whether I want to save a copy of the message?
