Email autocomplete addresses

An incorrect email address is coming up in autocomplete of email?

Type in the first letter or letters that bring up the email address you no longer want to appear in the To field. Don’t use your mouse, as this will only select the address - use the arrow buttons on the keyboard to move down to the address you want to remove. Once you have the email address highlighted, click the Delete button.

 

Outlook Email View Settings

Outlook - Check your email settings for view options – note them down as sometimes Outlook just changes them!  

 You can customise the way you view your emails – preview screen on or off, group your emails by date, and much more.

 One client thought they had lost all their emails, but a setting had just hidden all read mail.

Office 2007 Ribbon Hiding?

Suddenly you notice that your Ribbons in Word or Excel have disappeared and only come back when you hover over them?

Double click one of the ribbon names (eg Home) and your ribbon will display permanently.

It probably disappeared because you inadvertently double clicked in the first place!

 

Distribution Lists in Emails

Making a Distribution List is a time-saving way to send one email to several people.

Remember:

  • Put the Distribution List names in Bcc: so that email addresses are blind (hidden)
  • There is a maximum of 50 email addresses in each Distribution List
  • Any changes to email addresses in your Contact List must be updated in your Distribution List
 

Setting wrap option for images

Do you change the wrap option for any pictures inserted into your documents? In Office 2007, you can set your favourite option (mine is “through”) – go to Office Button, Word Options, Advanced, Cut, copy, paste group – Insert/paste pictures as (choose your favourite from drop down list)
