Email Tips
  • Surely, there’s got to be a better way! Fortunately, there is. It’s easier than you think, but it begins by making three commitments:
  • Commit to implementing a better system.
  • Commit to emptying your inbox daily.
  • Commit to dealing with each message only once.

Non-Actionable vs Actionable



non actionable messages
Non-Actionable Messages
  • Non-Actionable Messages have three possible choices:
  • Delete the message.
  • File it for later reference. Might be some valuable information that you could use later.
  • Keep it for later consideration. Might need to be acted on in the future but nothing needs to be done right now.

actionable messages


Actionable Messages
  • If the message is an Actionable Message, you also have three choices:
  • Do - take action on the task now.
  • Delegate - pass the task along to someone else.
  • Defer - consciously decide you will do the task later.

Protecting you from junk e-mail

Organizing your Inbox

Get familiar with your filter
  • Don't waste your time weeding out junk messages.
  • Use the Junk E-mail Filter and let Outlook do the sorting for you.
how the filter works
How the filter works
  • Outlook treats a message as junk because of several factors, including the time it was sent, the sender, the names on its To line, and its content.
  • You always have ultimate control over how much filtering is done.
where junk messages go
Where junk messages go
  • If the filter deems a message to be junk, the message is moved to the Junk E-mail folder.
  • If the filter mistakenly identifies something good as junk, you can always find it in the folder later.
  • You can take steps to ensure that the mistake won't happen again.

If a message is addressed to more than one person and you click Add Recipient to Safe Recipients List…

…you'll see a dialog box similar to this one.

Use it to choose which addresses to add to your Safe lists.

senders and recipients who they are to you
Senders and recipients: who they are to you

Sender: Any e-mail address that you see in the From line of a message.

Recipient: Any name that appears on the To, Cc, or Bcc line of a message.

Add e-mail addresses to your Safe lists to ensure that the right messages get to your Inbox.

list a domain
List a domain
  • Use a domain name in your Safe or Blocked lists:
  • A domain name in your Blocked Senders List means their messages are spam and will be automatically moved to the Junk E-mail folder.
  • A domain name in a Safe list allows all messages with that domain to pass directly to your Inbox.

The domain name is the part of an e-mail address after the @ sign.

guard your privacy21
Guard your privacy
  • When you know ways that junk e-mailers find you, you can make it harder for them.
  • Some features in Outlook help you avoid telling junk senders that you got their messages.
  • You can also act on your own to stay off spammers’ lists.

Wondering how spam finds you in the first place?

help outlook protect your address
Help Outlook protect your address
  • You can make wise choices to cut down on the amount of spam you receive:
  • Don't respond to junk messages or chain letters.
  • Don't display your personal e-mail address on a Web page.
  • Don't “Click here” unless you know the sender
  • Best thing to do is hit the Delete button or mark it as Junk
