Cancelling Exchange password prompt still shows all my e-mails

I’ve set my Exchange account to “Always prompt for logon credentials” thinking that it would prevent people from being able to get to my messages.

However, I’ve noticed that when you simply click on “Cancel” when getting the password prompt, Outlook still shows all my messages.

How can I password protect my Exchange mailbox?

View non-adjacent days/weeks side by side

Sometimes when discussing a date for an appointment, the days are not in the same week and I find myself going back and forth within the calendar to find a suitable time.

Is there any way I can capture these days in a single overview?

Outlook and Two-Step Verification for iCloud

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?

Automatically request a Read Receipt when sending to a specific address

I know that I can set the option to request for a Read Receipt for all messages or to set it on a per-message basis. However, I only want to set it when sending to certain people.

For instance, I only want to request a Read Receipt when sending to my boss, the HR department and some project managers.

Is there a way to have Outlook automatically ask for a Read Receipt if an email is sent to a specific email address rather than needing to set this manually?

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?
