Just last week we introduced a new personal email service called Outlook.com. In a previous post, we described how to upgrade from Hotmail to Outlook.com. Today, Dick Craddock, who runs the Program Management Team for Outlook.com, shows you how to upgrade from Gmail to Outlook.
Since we launched the Outlook.com preview a few days ago, we've been humbled and amazed by the reception and by the number of people who have upgraded. In fact, in just the first few days alone, we've seen several million people upgrade to Outlook.com. Over the next week we'll write a series of posts covering upgrading and using Outlook.com, starting with this post covering upgrading from Hotmail, and then followed by posts discussing upgrading from Gmail, Yahoo, and other services. These are all written by Dick Craddock, who runs the Program Management Team for Outlook.com.
We think the time is right to reimagine personal email. So today, we're introducing a preview of Outlook.com - modern email for the next billion mailboxes. We realized that we needed to take a bold step, break from the past and build you a brand new service from the ground up. You already know Outlook via the Outlook desktop application-for PCs and Macs-as the world's most popular application for reading email, managing a calendar, and connecting to people. And you may have used the Outlook Web App connected to Exchange Server in your organization. Now, in addition to a desktop application and a service for businesses, we're offering Outlook as a personal email service - Outlook.com.
"What do you mean you didn't receive it? I sent it last night!" At least you thought you did. Now you're red-faced in a meeting set up to review the PowerPoint presentation that never made it to your recipients. You check your Outbox and there it is. If you ever find yourself in this situation, here are some reasons why and some steps you can take.
It's your turn to organize a BBQ or highway litter patrol (or whatever) with your group of friends and you don't want to type each individual name (or email address) on the To: line. There's an easy way to avoid that mind-numbing task--create a Contact Group.
Now when is that neighborhood planning meeting and will it conflict with the business dinner your boss just asked you to attend? Your calendar is so full that scanning it won't help. You might not know that the Outlook Calendar has its own Search to help you sort out the dates.
Outlook offers several ways to filter emails. A filter lets you see only those messages that meet certain criteria. For example, you could pick a filter that lets you see only emails that have attachments or are unread. Here's how it works.
Have you ever had to find an email that was part of a long thread--an email with lots of replies about the same topic? For example, your boss might have asked for the results of last month's important meeting, and you know Sherry sent an email outlining them, but then you remember that Todd followed hers with more information.
If you group your emails into conversations, you can find the emails you want more quickly.
Conditional formatting is an Outlook tool for making sure your important email messages stick out in your Inbox. The tool lets you customize how different messages appear in your Inbox based on criteria that you set. This post shows you how.
