Get out of your Inbox with Outlook 2007

E-mail messages
Tame the chaos of your Inbox. Learn how old standbys and new features in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 can help you make the best use of messages in your Inbox and beyond.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Five self-paced lessons and five practice sessions for hands-on experience. Practices require Outlook 2007.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Use your messages to schedule tasks, set up meetings, or create contacts.
  • Flag messages in your Inbox to create a To Do list.
  • Color code messages using category labels that you create.
  • Organize messages into groups with folders.
  • Find any message quickly.

While it's true that e-mail can make communication more efficient, it's also true that the volume of messages can get overwhelming quickly. And, too much e-mail can make you feel out of control.

Outlook 2007 includes features to help you control e-mail volumes, find what you need, and act when and where action is required. Some of these features have been with Outlook all along, and some are new to this version. The good news is that all these features are flexible; so you'll be able to adapt them to fit your own organizational style.

This course will give you a glimpse of what's available. As you learn, you may find that some features are more your style than others. That's okay. Once you know what works for you, you'll see how easy it is to get out of your Inbox and into your day.
