Outlook’s Best Inbox View Has Changed – Here’s How to Adapt
Microsoft Outlook’s best inbox view has long been one of the top features of the platform, but it’s recently changed in a way that many users won’t like. If you’re used to seeing your messages neatly organized by date, you’ll have to figure out another way to organize them now. Luckily, there are some good alternatives, so you can still enjoy a clutter-free experience. Read on to find out how to adapt to this new change and find the best outlook inbox view changed yet!
If you’re like me, your inbox is constantly overflowing with emails. It can be tough to keep on top of everything, but luckily there are a few ways to organize your inbox so you can be more productive. First, don’t delete anything! You might think that deleting an email will make it disappear forever, but deleted emails actually go into the Deleted Items folder in Outlook and they stay there until you empty the folder. Next, I recommend setting up categories for all your email attachments. I use one category for receipts and another for documents because these types of files take up the most space in my inbox and I want them at the bottom where they’re easy to find.
Manage your inbox in 5 minutes
If you’re like most people, your inbox is a constant source of stress. Too many unread messages, too many emails from people you don’t know, and not enough time to get through it all. The good news is that Outlook now has an option called Focused Inbox that helps you manage your inbox in just 5 minutes per day. You can also use the unsubscribe button to stop getting unwanted mail as well as setting up VIPs for those select few who deserve your attention above all others.
Respond faster with pre-written emails
Do you find yourself typing out the same response to common questions over and over again? If so, you’re not alone. A recent study found that the average person spends 2.5 hours each day writing emails. That’s a lot of time spent on something that doesn’t necessarily have to be so time-consuming.
Clean out old clutter
If your inbox is anything like ours, it’s probably overflowing with old emails that you don’t need anymore. To help you declutter and get organized, we’ve put together a few tips. 1) You can delete an email by pressing the Delete button in the top right corner of the email. 2) When deleting an email, you can choose whether or not to delete it from your inbox only or from all folders (including deleted items). 3) You can also archive messages by selecting Archive from the top of the screen. Archived messages are still accessible but will no longer show up in your inbox unless they’re unarchived again.
Use address books
Most email programs have an address book where you can store the contact information for people you email often. This can be a huge time-saver when you’re sending out mass emails or emailing someone new. To access your address book in Outlook, click the Contacts tab on the left side of the screen. Then, click the Address Book icon at the top of the contacts list. You can also access your address book by clicking the To button when composing a new email.
