Ever notice when you reply to an email that's in HTML format, the font color isn’t black, but a dark blue? Boy, that's annoyed me ever since I switched to Outlook 2007, and I'm SO glad to have found how to fix it. Here's how you can do it too:
"Phishing" is a term coined by computer hackers who use email to "fish" the Internet hoping to hook people into giving them passwords and/or credit card information. In a typical phishing scam, you'll get an email that appears to be from a reputable company (your bank, PayPal, a government agency, etc.), and you'll be asked to click a link to a website where you can supposedly update your account information.
One of the podcasts I listen to on my daily commute is Stever Robbins' Get-It-Done Guy, and the other day he talked about the etiquette and good practices to follow when using CC (Carbon Copy) and BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) when addressing email messages.
Outlook has a spell checker so when you compose an email message and see a word that has a squggly red line underneath it, it's telling you the word isn't in its dictionary. You can right click on the word to choose alternate spellings, ignore the misspelled word, or add it to your custom dictionary.
If you've added a word to your custom dictionary by mistake, you can remove it by following these steps in Outlook 2007:
If you've ever typed a misspelled email address in the To or CC fields of an Outlook message, a problem occurs because Outlook will remember that bad address. Because Outlook has an auto-complete function, so every time you begin typing an address any incorrect ones will also appear in the auto complete list Outlook offers you.
Fortunately there's an easy way to clear any misspelled (or out of date) email addresses:
Why address an email message to 10 people when you can address it to one? If you often send email messages to a group of of people — like your Friends group, trustees, or colleagues who serve on a committee — you can save time by creating a distribution list from your Outlook contacts or Global Address Book.
