Show total unread item count of collapsed folders

I’m organizing my emails into various subfolders which have subfolders of their own again. In addition, I’m using rules to automatically move messages to their corresponding folder.

Usually I keep this folder structure collapsed but then I can’t see if a message arrived in any of these subfolders. Even these folder trees are expanded, I would have to scroll in order to see them all.

Is there a way to make the parent folder show the combined amount of unread items in any of the subfolders?

Finding back exceptions of a recurring meeting or appointment

I have a recurring appointment scheduled in Outlook for which I update the subject and message body of each occurrence to more accurately describe or report the purpose of that particular occurrence.

Unfortunately, when I do a search, Outlook can’t seem to find any of the text within these exceptions even though it is perfectly capable of finding the recurring item itself or anything else.

How can I do a query to find back any of these exceptions?

Split your message compose window

When I reply to a somewhat longer email, I find myself scrolling quite a lot between the original message at the bottom and then back up to where I left off writing my reply message.

While you could open the message in its own window and position and resize it in such a way that it sits nicely next to your compose screen so you can read them both, it is a somewhat cumbersome solution.

Did you know that you could split your message compose window directly from within Outlook?

Email attachments disappear when sent to others

Whenever I send an attachment through Outlook, the recipient receives the email without the attachment although they sometimes say that it got renamed to winmail.dat.

It happens to all attachments regardless of who I send it to and the format of the file (e.g. PDF, Word, jpg, etc). If I send the same attachment through web mail or from another computer, the attachment remains intact and is received in the email.

I’ve tried turning off my anti-virus program but that’s not made any difference, so I’m assuming the issue must be within Outlook itself.

Send meeting requests but don’t request responses

I’m organizing an open event and want to send a lot of people a notification of this event.

I’d like to send it out as an appointment so they can easily add it to their Calendar but I really don’t need to receive an Accept/Decline notification back with whether or not they will come.

How can I achieve this?

Delete or mark an email automatically at a set date

I know how to flag messages for follow up, but I was wondering if I could also flag messages to become “irrelevant” after a certain amount of days.

For instance; I’m reading a message now which holds relevant information for this week. After this week, I can get rid of the message. I know that if I somehow do not mark this message, it will stay in my mailbox a whole lot longer and I’ll need to reread the message in order to decide whether to keep it or not.

How can I mark a message, similar to flagging a message, as “irrelevant” after a certain date? Is it also possible to automatically delete it after this date?

Outlook is sending multiple copies of an email

I’m having a problem with Outlook sending multiple copies of some emails – usually those with attachments.

It doesn’t happen with every email with attachments, just occasionally. It will send it 20-30 times but keeps the email in my Outbox saying that it hasn’t been sent (although sometimes it says it’s been sent but stays in the Outbox).

How can I solve this and make sure Outlook only sends out one copy again?

Move all proper emails out of the Junk E-mail folder

Once or twice a month, I go through the Junk E-Mail folder and scan through it, looking for valid e-mails before emptying it out. If I find something that isn’t Junk, I click on “Not Junk” and then it moves it to the Inbox.

In this case, I had multiple senders of which multiple valid e-mails ended up in my Junk E-mail folder and I had to manually look for and move each e-mail to the Inbox.

Is there any way to use the “Not Junk” button and then have that automatically apply to all other e-mails from the same sender within the Junk E-mail folder as well?

Add multiple or change Calendars in the To-Do Bar

I’ve configured multiple email accounts in Outlook and several of them have a Calendar of their own. I’ve also created a few additional Calendars of my own to separate between the type of appointments I have (work, private, sport club, my kid’s school schedule, etc…).

Within the Calendar Navigation, I can easily get an overview of all my appointments by using the Calendar Overlay feature.

However, the To-Do Bar only lists the appointments of the Calendar from one of my accounts.

Is there any way that I can add additional Calendars to the To-Do Bar or switch between them somehow?

Exporting emails to an Access database

I am trying to export emails to an Access database. All works fine, but I would like to export the email’s Received and Sent Date/Time into the database as well. This field does not show up in the export wizard.

I then tried it on another computer with a newer version of Outlook and Access but there the Export to Access option doesn’t show up at all.

How can I achieve this?
