Quickly open folders via Quick Steps

This is another one of my favorite “hidden” features in Outlook;

You probably know already that you can move emails by using Quick Steps but did you also know that you can use that very same Quick Step to open and go to that folder?

Do not automatically mark emails as Read in Outlook on the Web (OWA)

In the regular Outlook for Desktop, I’ve successfully disabled the option to automatically mark messages as read.

However, occasionally, I use Outlook on the Web (OWA) as well and it doesn’t seem to pick up the setting as configured in Outlook.

How can I prevent Outlook on the Web to automatically mark my emails as read?

Manually add a 3rd party Outlook Connector mail account type to Outlook 2016 like Kerio Connect and Zimbra

We’re using Outlook 2016 with Kerio Connect for which we also installed the Outlook Connector.

Up until recently, we could add the account via a manual account setup procedure but Outlook 2016 now has a new Add Account dialog which no longer lets you select to add a Kerio Connect account.

How should I add my account now?

Search for attachments by file extension or words within the attachments

Search for attachments by file extension or words within the attachments

Outlook can find emails with one or more attachments by specifying the “Has Attachments” option.

But how can I search for a specific type of attached file?
e.g. search for emails having .docx, .pdf, .xlsx or .zip files etc.

Is it also possible to only search for text within an attachment and not within the message body?

Forward, Reply All and Print in Outlook.com

Forward, Reply All and Print in Outlook.com

When I use my Outlook.com account via the browser rather than in Outlook, I seem to miss some basic features or I simply can’t seem to find them.

For instance, how can I Forward a message or use Reply All?

Also, I can’t seem to find the Printing option. I’ve tried printing with the printing feature from my browser, but that looks very ugly as it simply prints the entire screen.

Where can I find these commands?

With the latest update for Outlook 2016, I noticed that I no longer have the Advanced Find feature. Is this a bug or was this an intentional change?

Disable or customize the Delete, Mark as Read, Flag and Pin action icons when hovering on a message in Outlook on the Web

Disable or customize the Delete, Mark as Read, Flag and Pin action icons when hovering on a message in Outlook on the Web

When I use Outlook on the Web (OWA), and then hover with my mouse over a message, the following Quick Action icons become visible;

  • Delete
  • Mark as Read/Unread
  • Flag
  • Pin

I sometimes have a bit of a “trigger finger” and worry that I might hit the Delete icon by mistake. Also, as Outlook on the Desktop doesn’t support the Pin feature, I don’t use that either.

Can I somehow disable some of these Quick Action icons and assign other commands to them like Archive or Move?

Don’t automatically switch to the Attachments tab when selecting a received attachment

Don't automatically switch to the Attachments tab when selecting a received attachment

When I receive an email and select its attachment, Outlook automatically switches to the Attachments tab.

I hardly use any of the commands on the Attachments tab and I much rather like to stay on the more useful Home or Message tab so that I can directly Reply, Categorize, Archive, Move, apply a Quick Step, or whatever without the need for an extra click.

Can I make Outlook stay on the Home or Message tab when I select an attachment?

Get back a message that was Recalled by the sender; Yes, it’s possible!

I received an interesting message which I wanted to read later so I’ve let it Unread but now it is gone.

I’ve found out that it was recalled by the sender but I don’t think it should have been for reasons I won’t go into here.

Is there any way I can still get this message back?
