The statistics you receive every week are for your library & others, and wastes lots of paper when you print it out? You want to annotate a memo you just got without creating a new message? That email message you received really needs a more descriptive subject line?
We have a very thorough email spam filter here at Winnefox, but there are still a few spam messages that slip through the gates. To avoid seeing explicit and/or not-safe-for-work images in spam email messages, turn off Outlook's reading pane.

By default, Outlook displays the Desktop Alert above the system tray on the desktop. If you want to change where the Desktop Alert appears on your screen (or modify how long it appears, its transparency, etc.), follow these steps:
1. On Outlook's menu bar, click "Tools" and select "Options".
2. Under "E-mail", click the "E-mail Options" button.
3. Under "Message handling", click the "Advanced E-mail Options" button.
