About Us and Contacts


Menus and toolbars vary only slightly between the seven components in Outlook. The tool button directly below the “File” menu is the equivalent to “new” in any other program. It will allow you to input a new appointment if in calendar, a new message if in inbox, a new task if in tasks, etc. The icon on this button will change between components.

Shown below is the Add Users dialog box.

Attaching Files to Emails
If you wish to send a file as a part of an email, first make sure that the file you want to send is closed.

Begin creating your email message as you normally would. After you have typed any text in the message area of the email that you want to accompany your attachment . . .
1. Click on the “Insert” menu.
2. Click on “File”.
3. Go to the folder where the file is located.
4. Double click on the file name. An icon representing the file is inserted into your email with the name of the file.
5. “Send”.

IMPORTANT: What you are emailing is merely a COPY of the file. Your recipient can open this file and read it. If changes are made to the file, the changes do not affect the original file located in your folder. Therefore, they cannot modify the emailed file and email it back to you.

If someone has to read and modify a file, move it to a less secure folder where it can be opened, modified, and resaved. When finished, remember to move it back to your folder to insure privacy and confidentiality.

Using Calendar:

All About Appointments, Meetings, And Events

Appointments are activities that you block time for in your Calendar that do not involve inviting other people or resources.

Appointments can have reminders attached to them. You can specify how others view your Calendar by designating the time an appointment takes as busy, free, tentative, or out of office. You can schedule recurring appointments. Clicking an appointment selects it, while double-clicking the left move handle opens it. You can view your appointments by day, week, or month.

When you select start and end times, you can take advantage of Autodate functionality and type text such as "next Tuesday" or "noon" instead of typing a date or time.

You can schedule an appointment in your own Calendar, and other users can give you permission to schedule or make changes to appointments in their Calendars. Appointments can also be made private.

A meeting is an appointment to which you invite people and resources.

You use the Meeting Planner to create and send meeting requests and to reserve resources. When you create a meeting, you identify the people and resources to invite and pick a meeting time. Responses to your meeting request appear in your Inbox. You can track responses by clicking Show attendee status on the Meeting Planner tab in the Appointment dialog box. You can also add people to an existing meeting or reschedule a meeting.

An event is an activity that lasts 24 hours or longer.

Examples include a trade show, the Olympics, a vacation, or a seminar. An annual event, such as a birthday or anniversary, occurs yearly on a specific date, while an event occurs once and can last for one day or several days. Events and annual events do not occupy blocks of time in Calendar; instead, they appear in banners. An all-day appointment shows time as busy, while an event or annual event shows time as free when viewed by others.

CLEANING UP EMAIL!!(Version 2000)
The habit of deleting email from your Inbox that have been read is a very important housekeeping chore on your PC. If you don’t take the time to clean out your Inbox, not only will it become increasingly more difficult to quickly tell what email is new, burdensome and time consuming to scroll through your email, but also eventually it will put a heavy burden on the server that links all main office PCs. Therefore, please regularly follow these steps to remove your old email. Below you will also find methods of customizing Outlook so that areas are automatically cleaned out.

Emptying the “Sent Items” Folder
Every time you send an email it stores it in the “Sent Items” shortcut folder. These need to be removed from time to time.

1. Make sure your Outlook bar is visible. From the “View” menu in Outlook make sure “Outlook Bar” is checked. If not, click it to check it.

2.From the Outlook Bar click on “My Shortcuts.”

3. From “My Shortcuts” click on “Sent Items.”

 4. In the “Sent Items” window you can begin to delete items.

Deleting All Items:
Click and release on the first item to highlight it. Hold down the “Shift” key on your keyboard and click and release on the last item. This selects all of the items between the first and last highlighted items. Strike the “Delete” key on your keyboard to delete these items.

Deleting One Item at a Time:
Click on the item to be deleted and then strike the “Delete” key on your keyboard.

After deleting these items, your Outlook window should appear as shown below.

Deleting Only Specific Items:
If you wish to remove more than one item but not all of the items you can accomplish this by holding down the “Ctrl” while clicking the items you wish to delete. This highlights each item you click on. When you have highlighted each item that you wish to delete, strike the “Delete” key on your keyboard. Keep in mind that your “Sent Items” should be completely cleaned out periodically.

5. In order to get out of “Sent Items,” click on “Outlook Shortcuts” from the Outlook Bar.

6. The Outlook Bar will now appear as shown here.

7. Click on the icon that represents where you’d like to work from in Outlook.

Emptying From The “Deleted Items” Folder
Whenever an email is deleted, , it isn’t actually deleted from Outlook. It is deleted it from the Inbox until it has been manually deleted from “Deleted Items.

The easiest method of removing all deleted items . . .
1. Click in the “Tools” menu in Outlook.

2. Click on “Empty Deleted Items Folder”.

3. Outlook will ask if you are sure that you want to permanently delete these items. Click “Yes”.

There will be times that you may want to see what is in your deleted items folder before deleting. You may also want to keep certain items in that folder instead of permanently deleting them. If you want to see what is in the folder and/or delete items selectively, follow the below steps.

1. To empty this area in Outlook, first click the down arrow on your Outlook bar until the “Deleted Items” icon is visible.  Click on the icon.

2. From the “Deleted Items” window, delete items using any of the methods explained above for deleting items from “Sent Items”.

NOTE: Because these items will be permanently removed, after you strike the “Delete” key, Outlook will ask if you wish to permanently delete these items. Click “OK” if you do.

To get out of “Deleted Items” click on the icon in the Outlook bar that represents the area you would like to work in.

At this point you can go back to the “View” menu and click “Outlook bar” if you do not wish for this toolbar bar to remain viewed on your screen.

Emptying “Deleted Items” Automatically
An additional option is to have the “Deleted Items” folder empty itself whenever you log out of Outlook. To set up this option . . .

1. From Outlook, click on “Tools”.

2. Click on “Options”.

3. Click on the “Other” tab.

4. Click on the option that reads, “ Empty the Deleted Items folder upon exiting” in order to place a check in the box.

5. Click on “OK” to close out of the dialog box.

IMPORTANT: If you want to be emailed every time someone reads an email you have sent, you may turn this feature on.
1. From Outlook click on the “Tools” menu.

2. Click on “Options”.

3. Click the “Preferences” tab.

4. Click “E-mail Options”.

5. Click “Tracking Options”.

6. Click here to put a check mark in the box that reads, “Request a read receipt for all messages I send.”.

7. Click “OK” to get out of each dialog box.

Setting Delegates & Permissions for Sharing of Outlook Modules
If you wish for someone to be able to view, modify or add items to you calendar, contacts, taskpad, etc., you will make that individual a delegate to the particular component in Outlook. The individual with those rights will then establish a shortcut to the component. Here’s how to set the permissions:

Establishing Delegates:

From the Tools menu in Outlook, select “Options”.

This will bring up the Options dialog box. From this point, click on the “Delegates” tab.

This is the point where you will want to add whomever you wish to have permission to view, modify, or add items to the various components of your Outlook.
The first step is to click “Add”.

The screen should look similar to the one below.

You can choose anyone on the Exchange server to have permissions to your Outlook components. For this demonstration, we will assume that I wish for Michael Reese to have permissions to view my calendar.

After finding Michael Reese in the list of individuals in the Global Address List (this is the default list), click his name to highlight it. Click the “Add” button between the two columns to add it to the “Add Users” list.

Click “OK” to close out of the box.

The Delegate Permissions dialog box allows you to chose the components you want to designate access to and to what extent the access will be.

The following accesses are available:

Editor: The delegate can read, create and modify items.

Reviewer: Can read items only.

Author: Can read and create items only.

None: No permissions given.

The delegate can also be given permission to view private items.

Notice that no other permissions have been set for any other Outlook component, although if we had wanted to, they could have all been set at the same time.

For Michael Reese to have permissions to view my calendar, the delegates box would be set up as seen above.

Notice that I am having a message sent to Michael Reese letting him know he was been set up as a delegate to my calendar so he can view my calendar.

Click the OK button to accept the settings and close out of the box.

You are returned back to the dialog box that lists all delegates to your Outlook components. Notice that Michael Reese has been added. From here you click “Apply” if you wish to continue using the Delegates option or click “OK” if you are ready to exit this dialog box.

To be able to tell what permissions have been established for each delegate, simply click the individual’s name and click the Permissions button from the Delegates tab of the Options dialog box (Tools/Options). Let’s look at the permissions that have been established for Patt Welsh in my Outlook.

The permissions box for that individual is displayed much like the initial one we used to establish the permissions for Michael Reese.

We see that Patt Welsh is a Reviewer to my Calendar which means she can view it.

It is important to note that anyone on the exchange server (their name appears in the Global Address List) can be set as a delegate. It is also noteworthy that an individual can be set up as a delegate for any of the above Outlook components: Tasks, Inbox, Contacts, Notes and Journal, as well as, Calendar. For those users who establish delegates, it is usually their calendar and contacts that they give permissions for.

Once the above steps have been taken, the person who has been given permission will want to create a shortcut to the person’s calendar. Using the above scenario, Michael Reese will want to make a shortcut to my calendar, which I gave him permission to view.

Here’s how to create the shortcut:

From the File menu, click on Open. From the cascading menu, select “Other User’s Folder . . .”

The dialog box below appears. Click the Name button to select whose Outlook you want to view.

In this case we will select Michael Reese. Click the name of the individual one time to select it. Click the OK button.

After clicking OK, you are returned to the Open Other User’s Folder box.

From here you select what folder you have been given permissions to. In this case, it is calendar. Click the drop-down arrow to expose the list of folder options and click Calendar to select it. Click OK.

Michael Reese’s calendar will appear. If it is not immediately needed, close it out by clicking the X in the top right-hand corner. Each component that you have permissions for will open in their own window so you do not have to fear that you will inadvertently close out of Outlook.

A shortcut is now created from the File/Open menu for future use. NOTE: This shortcut list will keep track of the last 5 Outlook components visited. Therefore, depending upon how many components you have permission to, this list may change rapidly. Should you want to go to an individual’s Outlook and you no longer have a shortcut, simply click on Other User’s Folder, and continue with the step that begins this page.

Scheduling Others for Appointments
You have been asked to schedule a meeting involving yourself and two of your coworkers. The meeting is to take place tomorrow at 10:00 AM.

Go to your Calendar in Outlook and double-click on the 10:00 AM half-hour increment. This opens up your appointment window. Fill in all the necessary information such as the subject of the meeting, the location, the beginning and end time, show your time as busy or out of the office and set a reminder, if desired. The next step is necessary in order to schedule others for the meeting.

Click on the “Attendee Availability” tab.

In the “All Attendees” list, type the names of the individuals whose calendars you wish to check in the available spaces below your name. As you hit Enter their availability will be displayed in the grid.

If any or all of the intended attendees are not available during the original meeting time, the time can be changed by clicking and dragging the green and red lines in the grid or by changing the time in the text boxes at the bottom of the window in order to accommodate schedules.

When a time has been chosen for the meeting and all attendees have been checked for availability, save and close/send the appointment. This sets the meeting on your calendar and sends email notifications of the meeting to the attendees. They are given the opportunity to accept, deny or mark the meeting as tentative. They are also given an opportunity to send a message back to the meeting planner (you) if desired. If an attendee accepts the invitation or sets it as tentative, the meeting is put on their calendar.

Customizing the Taskpad
In order to get your taskpad to view as below or in order to change the column headers, right-click your mouse while your mouse pointer is at the column headers. (See right). When you right-click, a pop-up menu appears.

From the pop-up menu, click on “Customize Current View . . .”

From this box chose “Fields” in order to pick which fields you wish to display in your Taskpad.

Using the “Add” and “Remove” buttons, customize your Taskpad’s view. Note: The order in which they are shown in the list is how they will be displayed from left to right on the Taskpad. You may reorder them by click the option once to select it and then using the “Move up” and “Move down” buttons. (These buttons are currently grayed out because no field has been selected.)

To further customize the Taskpad, click on View, then on Taskpad view.

Any of the selections above are available for the Taskpad. The chosen selection only shows the items on the taskpad for the selected day(s).

Setting Rules for the Inbox Using The Rules Wizard
1. From the Tools menu, click on Rules Wizard (as seen at left).
2. This will open the below dialog box.

3. Click New. There are an infinite number of rule possibilities for your inbox. For this reason, please read each screen of the Rules Wizard, answer them and click the Next button until the Wizard is complete. Click Finish. If you are not able to get the desired Rules or are having difficulties, call User Support at Ext. 5457.

Using the Journal with Contacts

From your Contacts listing, left click on the Contact you wish to create a journal entry for. Right-click the entry to access the pop-up menu. Select New Journal Entry for Contact.

This creates the below dialog box.

By default The box is set for a phone call entry type. Clicking the drop down arrow and selecting the desired entry type can change this. The subject box can also be changed.

Type in the scratch pad area all the information you wish added regarding this contact.

These entries create a time-line diary for each contact entry.

To see any particular Journal entry, simply double click the desired entry. See below for a screen shot. (To get to the time line as seen above, click on the Activities tab and then click on Journal from the drop down menu.)

Once the data source has been created from your contacts entries, deleting those entries that you do not wish to use in your mail merge will customize it.

Creating and Using a Distribution List
From Contacts click on the Actions menu. Click on “New Distribution List”. 

First, type in the “Name” textbox what you wish this list to be called.

If the individuals are already on the Exchange server or have contact entries made for them, click the “Select Members . . .” option. If not, click the “Add New” button and fill in the textboxes as seen below. Click the “Add to contacts” option if you wish a contact entry to be made for this entry while also adding it to the distribution list.

Use a distribution list in an email as you would any contact entry.
