Now it's time to help out your pal Chris (whom you may remember from the last practice) by customizing some Search Folders. You'll get a chance to modify some existing Search Folders, and you'll also create some new, custom Search Folders.

You'll use sample data to practice with. Using the practice data will make it easy to keep the sample messages safely and reliably separate from your own message data.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Outlook, Outlook will open, a practice file will download to your computer, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside Outlook (see picture). You'll open the practice file from within Outlook.

Note     You need to have Outlook 2003 installed on your computer.

Tips

  • If Windows Explorer opens to display the location of the practice file, do not double-click the file to open it. Close Windows Explorer and follow the instructions in the practice to open the practice file from within Outlook.
  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or disappear when you click in Outlook, click the Outlook Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.
  • If the practice instructions cover up Outlook, click the Auto Tile button on the upper-left corner of the instructions.

Before you begin

Make sure to close Outlook if it is already running.
