Microsoft Outlook – Finding that Email

I think of myself as an advanced user of software, I like using the tools available in any software to make my job as easily as possible.  I also know there are many more people who use the software that is put in front of them and are only able to do basic stuff.

All users can take advantage of tips and tricks to become more productive.  Nice little article about Outlook 2010 and searching.

Hi, I am Roby Kurian, Product Manager for Outlook. How often do you ask yourself, “Where’s that message?”

Whether you are a filer (you keep messages carefully organized in folders) or a piler (you keep all of your messages in your Inbox), these three tips can help you find that elusive message.

Personally, I am more of a piler — I have created folders and use Outlook rules to direct some messages automatically to those folders. But most of my work messages stay in my Inbox. Leave a comment below and let us know if you are a filer or piler.

Now let’s talk about the main topic of this blog — search. We made great improvements to search performance in Outlook 2010. Here are three scenarios and strategies to find the email you are searching for.
