Clickable index (TOC) in emails to jump to a later section within the email

I regularly need to send out emails which discusses multiple topics (an internal newsletter) and found out that topics as the bottom are regularly overlooked as people don’t tend to scroll down all the way.

I therefor want these email messages to contains an index at top with links people can click on which takes them directly to that section within the email. This would be similar to inserting a Table of Contents (TOC) in Word.

Can I create such indexes within emails as well?

Mail Merge filter based on Categories

Is there any way to do this?

Address envelopes and letters with Outlook contact data

I’ve tried a couple of times to create envelopes in Word for Outlook contacts (for which I’ve entered addresses) but every time I try, I end up clicking around a lot without any satisfactory result.

This seems like a core functionality of Outlook though, which shouldn’t be too hard and quickly to repeat so I must be doing something wrong here.

Could you walk me through the process of creating envelopes?

Excel: Remove all Mailto hyperlinks for email addresses at once

In a previous tip you explained how to prevent email address in Excel turning into clickable mailto hyperlinks which is close to an issue I’m currently facing.

In my current case, I’ve received an Excel sheet full of email addresses that are clickable mailto links which is highly annoying as sooner or later I’ll accidentally click on one.

Is there any way to bulk remove or disable these clickable email addresses and turn them into regular text instead?

Excel: Stop turning email addresses into clickable Mailto links

I’m working with Excel sheets that contain a lot of email addresses as well.

When updating a field, it turns the email address in a clickable “mailto” link and when I’m not careful when clicking, it opens up a new email in Outlook.

As I have no intention to email anyone directly from these lists, but do work a lot with these sheets, this is getting annoying quite fast.

Is there any way to disable this behavior in Excel?

Categorize Sent Items while composing a message

I know how to Categorize a message that I have received or once I have sent it; There is a big Categorize button for that on the Ribbon.

However, when I compose a message, this command is not available on the Ribbon. It is available when creating a new Appointment, Meeting or Contact.

Why is this button not available and how can I Categorize a message before sending it?

Remove my name from the top header when printing an email as a delegate

Upon printing an email from Outlook, my name is printed in large bold letters at the top of the message.

While this is OK for my own messages, sadly Outlook also prints my name when I print a message from my manager’s mailbox for which I am a delegate.

Is there a way to print it with the name of my manager instead or to remove the name altogether?

► Continue to the answer account with a personal address or custom domain can’t be added to Outlook

My mailbox just got migrated to the new Outlook Mail infrastructure but I still can’t add my mailbox as an Exchange account in Outlook.

I’m not using an address but an address from my own domain. I also have an address connected to my account but that fails too.

This used to work with the Outlook Hotmail Connector and as an Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) account but not as an Exchange account. How can I make it work as an Exchange account as well?
