Quick Tip: Darken the Outlook List Grouping Headers

One of the nicer features of Outlook 2007 is the way it neatly groups your messages by date or other criteria, but it's not always easy to see at a glance. There's a little-known option buried in the settings that will shade the group headings to make them more easy to distinguish.

Use Delicious as a Reading List the Easy Way

How often do you find a great article without the time to read it, so you bookmark it and completely forget about it? This happened to me constantly until I found the Readeroo extension for Firefox, which lets me queue pages for easy retrieval later.

Using the Outlook 2007 To-Do Bar

My favorite feature of Outlook 2007 is the new To-Do Bar, which shows you everything on your plate at a glance. There are a lot of features packed into a tiny space, so we'll go through some of them with you.

Integrate Twitter With Microsoft Outlook

If you use Microsoft Outlook as the center for all your communications, you might be interested in integrating Twitter directly into Outlook so you never have to leave the comfort of your inbox to read about the daily minutia of your twitter friends.

Recalling Email Messages in Outlook 2007

How many times have you sent out an email only to realize you forgot to include the attachment, or really shouldn't have sent a response to the entire company? If you are using Outlook in an Exchange environment you can attempt to recall the message.

Make Excel 2007 Read Spreadsheets To You

Instead of looking between a hard copy of data and comparing it to the data entered on the spreadsheet you can make Excel read your spreadsheet to you while you are looking at the hard copy version.

Save Time With Search Folders in Outlook 2007

Managing your email can be a daunting task, but Outlook provides a great feature called Custom Search Folders that can save you time if you are constantly searching for the same things, or just as a way to organize your email into virtual folders similar to the Labels feature in Gmail, except more powerful.

Use Hotmail from Microsoft Outlook

If you are still using Hotmail but would prefer to access your email from a desktop client, then you might be interested to know that Microsoft has released a connector that will allow you to send and receive Hotmail or Office Live Mail through Outlook 2003 or 2007.
