See you inside. 2. 2 How to add email accounts to Microsoft Outlook: Now after installing Microsoft Outlook, you can go to the Start menu and type Outlook. You will open the app. And in this lab, you will get to enter your e-mail account login credentials. Now, this Microsoft Outlook software works would Hotmail outlook Gmail accounts, and even your outcomes. So it's like an all in one experience. So I will use my Hotmail account. Once you click Next and click Enter, it will ask you to enter the password for this email address. And if you have two-step authentication enabled, it will ask you to add more information. Now since I already have this account length, I can easily add it without entering the password because it's basically my Windows account. Now if you want to add another email address, you can simply buy bit here. And even if this Gmail that will connect it without any issues. As you can see, accounts successfully added. Now, once you are done with adding all that counts, you can click the Done button and it will start loading your profiles. As you can see, loading outlook usually takes some time when it first loads. But after that, it will load faster because it already downloaded all that counts information and folders to your Windows PC. Now, this is all user interface and this is our main email. Now we'll talk about everything and few lessons, and we will cover the user interface. What does it for this lesson? You did learn how to add your e-mail accounts to Microsoft Outlook. See you next. 3. 3 Getting Started with Microsoft Outlook: Now let's start talking about more configurations that you can do. Now we can go to the File menu and inside the NFO, you can click the Add Account option to add other accounts as well. It will show you the same undo that What's shown in the previous lesson. And here you can enter your e-mail account information and now you can also check your emails. Now this is the favorite section. And here we have each of your e-mail addresses. And this is our Hotmail account, and this is our Gmail accounts. Now, when you click on this sign, the UDL, you can see the folders that you have inside your e-mail account for each of the emails. And you can see the number of emails that you haven't responded to. Now usually it will keep loading new emails. And this favorite is basically where everything shared between these email accounts is placed. Now this inbox is basically the inbox of this e-mail account. And this e-mail account doesn't items for both of these email accounts that drafts the archives that deleted items. So this is a shared folder created by outlook to manage all of your email accounts in one place. Now the main thing that we will cover here is the inbox. In the inbox you can see a list of fewer emails. And these are the new e-mails that I got. And you can see that the emails that are not thread are involved. Now, if you did read any of these emails, it will turn to unfold. Now you can click here to mark it as read without entering their email. Or you can click this spot again to make it a 100. So clicking once will turn this term to being red. And this is now showing the email as a 100. Now to change how this view. Now, let me show you. Now this is an email from Apple and this is the actual e-mail I clicked here, and emails showing up on this area. Now if you want another view, you can change the view by simply going to the View menu and click Change few. From here, you can change this from compared to single and from single to preview, as you can see. But the best of you is the Combat view. And it's the default view where you can see a list of your folders unless a few emails. And here you can click on any of the emails to see it on the screen. Now let's say that I did see this email and it's now unread. I want to turn it back to us now read sorry. And they want to tell it back to a 100, I simply click this blue bar. This is the first step. Now let's talk about how to delete a message. Let's say that I don't, I want to delete this message. Ready? So all the information inside it, you can simply click this, delete the item icon and the item and go to the deleted items folder. If you clicked here, you will see the item inside the deleted items folder, which is the email that we just deleted. And you can click again on the delete the item icon, and here you will get a message. This will permanently delete that email. Do you want to continue? Click Yes. And now the e-mail is gone. Okay. Now this is the first step. Another way to delete that deleted items, if you have too many items, is by clicking here and clicking on empty folder. Now if you have any emails, there will be deleted permanently. Now the patella way of dealing with emails and sort of deleting them is by simply saying archiving them. Now, as you can see, if we went back to the home menu, you can click any of the emails and then you can click on the Archive icon. Now this e-mail out the email that I archived will move to the archive folder, which is this folder. And you can see it in the archive folder here as well. And this means that it's not deleted, but it's hidden from the inbox because I already read read this email and I have all the information inside it. I don't want to delete it because I might need it for future reference. So the best solution for this situation. To click the archive I too icon and it will move the email from your inbox to archive folder. And this is what I do. I don't delete emails because you never know you might need an email in the future. Now, one more thing that we need to talk about is the symbols. Now this is called the flag symbol and we will cover it later. We also have other symbols that might appear on your email. Now, there is a blue arrow like this. Arrow means that this email was forwarded to. Now, if there is this arrow, as you can see, it means that this e-mail you have applied to all you are, what you have participated in that applies that we're in this email. And usually the icons appear on the scarier. So this one means that the email is for logic. And this one means that the email is, has a reply from new. And it's an easy way to deal with emails. Now there's also another way to arrange the emails inside your area or this area. Now, you can arrange them, the dates or by the person that these messages were sent from. Or two. You can even arrange them by size if they have attachments by subject, by type. And by that attachment itself, you can solve them by the news 2 on top or oldest on top. Now, you can show the unread emails only and this area. Or you can show all emails. Now what I do prefer it's showing unread emails only because if you have already read an email, there is no need for it to appear. And this area. Now one more feature that I like is the search feature. The search feature is basically a feature that helps you find an email by simply typing somewhere. So let's in iTunes or Apple. Now Tool show you all the emails that you did receive from Apple. And as you can see, here are the emails. These are the two presents two weeks ago. And basically the first result is the best results now. And the top plus alt tab. I have three emails from Apple, as you can see here, here and here. And you can easily find an email or contact by simply searching using this part. More features will appear once you started the searching process. Now, as you can see, you can specify all mailboxes to search all your mailboxes for results from Apple. Or you can select current mailbox, which is the Hotmail mailbox. Now you can even select the Form which is searching by sintered. So let's write iTunes. If you already know that email, we already know that it is. Do not select line. Items. Look on, hit Enter, and as you can see, there are no e-mails from this. So let's cut barrier down. Now. Anything that has ADD itunes.com and that from area of email, it will be displayed here. Now you can even select to filter results by subject or by showing them only that is honest, that has attachments. As you can see, none of the e-mails has dash min. That's why this filter won't work. Now once you are done with the searching process, simply hit the X icon and you will go back to your inbox. And alone. Nice way of looking up your emails is by simply going to the filter Email tab here and show only downloaded emails. Now, once you click on it, we'll change the view here. You can change this to any other thing. And as you can see, it's basically a search function. Now is dead. No. Now you can close this and you can't go back to filtering emails by showing only the emails that had attachments. By clicking here has attachment or by the category. And we'll talk about later on by showing only the flagged email. Now we already mentioned the flag. You can simply click on the flag on any of these emails like this flag. And if you choose the filter to show only flagged emails, it will only show the e-mails that has a flag. Now, as you can see, it's searching to see what emails has flagged. And as you can see, it's still organizing. So it didn't show the results, but it will show it eventually since the software is still loading. Now, another thing that we need to mention is inside the filter email is that you can filter them by the important, you can mark on email as an important email so that you can follow it up. You can categorize your e-mail list by creating a new category for a specific email. And you can add more filters. We will talk about that later. But that's it for this lesson. I'm sure that you have learned a lot. Don't move on to the next lesson before applying the knowledge in this lesson. So make sure that you go and install Outlook connected to your account. Start using the search feature, the filtered email feature, and starts like playing with the software to get used to it. And try deleting and archiving some of your emails. Thanks for watching this lesson. See you all next. 4. 4 Conditional Formating in Microsoft Outlook: Now let's talk about a more advanced topic which is conditional formatting. It's a very nice feature that lets you add conditions in which you can configure the email. So any new email that comes to you for Adobe or Apple, you can archive it, you can label it, you can add it to our category. All you can do anything you want with x. Now, to do this, you need to go to the View menu. Then from the view menu, go to View settings. Now click on the Conditional Formatting Feature. Here, user-defined fonts on each message. Now click on it. And here you will see the conditional formatting rules. Now the formatting that we will deal with here is basically that formed formatting will change the font depending on the sender. So to create a new full, here, we have already made rules by Microsoft or unread messages under the group headers and et cetera. As you can see, the color change depending on the status. So to create a new one click Add and listening image named with your name or the rule itself. So partial of, let's say Udi. Now, the next step is adding the font formatting. Let's say that you want to add, let's say bold, big font, and change the colors to pair. Then click. Okay. Now we have the font, we have the name dot. Last thing is the condition itself, which is what we will work with. Now. Now the next step is including our world here. Now to search for the world and the e-mail title. And if it is there, it will change that color. To make this e-mail unique. Usually this world must be your company name, all your hostname to make sure that you don't miss any new email from your boss. Now let's add apple. And the phone message you can add at Apple or add itunes.com. Now this will help them filter look for an e-mail that comes from Apple at items that gone. Now, if you want, you can specify that sent to e-mail. So anemia and that you have sent to someone. And you can add the e-mail of that person here. It will change the coloring of this email. Now, the last thing is pressing, Okay? Okay, and Okay. Now, if the filter applies to any of these emails, it will directly change the coloring. So let's take the schema and add it to the film. Brought back the view settings will back to Conditional Formatting. Ashraf and she used the e-mail address for happen. And to move the upload. Now usually we use the from email address to specify this filter and we change the color to make it unique. Once you do that, as you can see now, inside my e-mail list, you can see that Apple email is in a different color. Now because it was sent from the email that I have specified. Now you can change this with your boss e-mail or your company man email to change the coloring and make it stand out from other emails. This is Conditional Formatting. Now next we will talk about flags, which is another nice feature that you can use inside Outlook or Microsoft Outlook. Thanks for watching this lesson. See you next. 5. 5 Flags in Microsoft Outlook: Hello and welcome. This is your last one, which we are going to talk about, flags and Microsoft Outlook. Now flowers are basically a way to keep track of important emails that requires follow-up. So let's say that's this e-mail from Apple requires a follow-up from me. All what you need to do is to press on the flag icon right here. Now, it would be flagged, as you can see. And the red flag will be on, means that you need to follow up this e-mail. Now, another thing, Let's flag this e-mail from Adobe. And once you have all of these e-mails flagged, you can easily see them in this menu. Now, let's go back. As you can see, this menu is called the Tasks menu. And here it shows all the flags email. Now I'm telling you to like home over without clicking on this menu, to see a list of the flags emails. Now if you want to see a full list, you can simply click on it and it will turn the view to the data view. Now these e-mails needs fall out from me and I must follow these emails. Now, these two or these three emails that I just flagged are flagged for today because I just flagged them. Now, once you click on any of these emails, it will show up in that ICT and you've got to spawned or do whatever you want. And once you are done with it, you can click once. And this will be removed from this area. Now if we went all, if you want to go back to the emails menu, go back by clicking here the mail icon. Now let's say that I'm done with this email. Click once on the flag and to turn to this checkmark. The checkmark means that this item once flagged and I'm done with it. So now it has a check mark. I don't need to do anything else with it. And this is a very good way of tracking the e-mails that requires some attention and that requires follow-up, all that requires you to do something. Then we'll back and remove the flag just to make sure that you are not forgetting what you need to do or what have, what you have, what, what has to be done, you know? So when you click a flag, you basically flagged the item for today. So this item must be done today and you must do it today. What if we want to flag an item for tomorrow, this week, next week, or a custom date? Well, you can simply do that by right-clicking on the flag itself. And you'll get a menu. And I'm saying it right-click, not left-click. Now, leg to model, it will be flagged with a different color. Now should collect here. You can flag it for next week. You can flag this e-mail. Let's click on the flag itself. Sorry. You can add a reminder. You can mark it as complete as you can see, or you can create a custom flag. Now, this custom flag can be of a specific date. Let's say on three December, December 3rd. Now, I have all of these flagged. If you go to this menu, you can see all the flag items. Now, I usually don't use a scrolling feature. As you can see, sometimes it the severe. So click once on it to see here we have that today flagged item tomorrow, next week. And here we have the next month lag items. So by entering the Tasks menu, I know for sure what needs to be done and when to do it. Now, once you are done with all of these, simply click this icon and it will be removed from here. And you have nothing to do with it. Now if you went back to the meals, you will see a checkmark over the items that you have finished, as you can see here. And this is how easy it is to use the flag future. Again, it's a very important feature that helps you keeping track of the tasks that you need to do. So if your boss assigned your task and you have to deliver this task at a deadline, let's say a week from now, you will most likely forget. But using the tasks feature, you can easily keep track of the most important tasks that you need to do in order to respond to these e-mails. Now what's spit out is that you can even add a reminder. You can go to this e-mail right-click are the reminder and you can flag to follow up. And start date for this is December 4th. And here is the reminder. You can ask it to remind you a day before the deadline, which is December 4th at two PM, let's say. And this will be the sound that will play on this reminders time comes. Simply click OK, and it will be flagged item with adding bill beside it to indicate that you will get a reminder when the deadline comes or are they before the deadline? Again, it's a very nice feature to remind you of the most important tasks that you need to do. That's it for this lesson. If you have any questions about anything, please ask. I'm here to help. Next, we are going to talk about another feature that is that categories. But that's it for the flag features. Thank you for watching this is Ashraf. See you next. 6. 6 Catergories in Microsoft Outlook: Hello and welcome. Now another way of organizing your email is by using categories. Simply go to anemia and right-click on it. Go to that categorize. And from there you can select the category if you want to add it to the orange category with this label or to the little category with this label. Now, you can also select all categories. And from here, you can add a new category. Let's call it important. And let's give it added colors. This is the name of the category, this is the color. And you can even add a shortcut key. Control plus F2. Click Okay, now we have this category. You can add another category, not important. And you cannot buy a new color. Control F3 and click Okay. Now you can even rename these two categories or remove them. Now once you click Okay, we have added these two categories, important and not important to the same e-mail. If we want to remove them, we can simply go to categorize clear all category, then right-click to add only one category which is not important. Now as you can see, it has a golden yellow indicating that this is not important email. Now let's add this e-mail as unimportant e-mail. This e-mail as unimportant e-mail. And as you can see, it has that at sign here. Now, in order to see only important emails that we added to the category called important that has Dalit color. Go to the home New, and from there go to the filter email and select categorized. Select important. Now to only show the important degrees inside our email, but select all mailboxes here. Now, we are not seeing the results because it's already still loading the email list. So the filter is not applied yet, but this is the way to do it. Now, again, this will show you the important emails in this category. And you can play with the categories by simply going back to the home menu and select n box, scroll down. These are the e-mails that we categorize. Now, you can even and the categorized, as you can see, as a filter for showing your emails. Now we can see the important emails and they're not important email. That's it for the categories feature. Another nice feature that you can use to organize your email if you wish. Thanks for watching this lesson. This is Ashraf. See you next. 7. 7 Folders and Rules in Microsoft Outlook: Hello and welcome to this new lesson. No child going to talk about folders. Now, folder is dies. Another way to arrange your email inbox, as you can see in books here is a folder, sent items is a folder, drafts, archive, deleted items. All of these are folders. Now, if you want to create a specific folder on which you can add emails that you receive from a specific destination. You can right-click on any of the folders, click New Folder, and let's name it Instagram. Now, once you do that, you will get a new folder called serum inside your inbox folder. Now, let's drag some of the emails that we receive from Instagram to this folder. You can manually drag this e-mail by simply holding your left mouse button and dragging the e-mail inside your folder. Now, you can keep scrolling and add any email from Instagram to this folder. And once you click on the folder, you will see the email that you have tried. Now, if you want, what we did here, it is a manual transfer of this email to the Instagram folder. Let's say that we want to automatically transfer anemia that we receive from Instagram, from the schema and address to the Instagram folder. This can be easily done by right-clicking on the e-mail itself, going to the rules section. And click always move messages from Instagram. Now once you click on it, you will see a window that tells you where do you want to place that email that comes from Instagram? Simply select the folder. Or if you want to create another folder, click New, and call it a new folder and place it whatever you want. Now, since I already have an SLR folder that I just created using the normal method. I can click. Okay. And now we have a rule that would move any e-mail that we will receive from Instagram to this folder, which is basically that Islam folder, that is a subfolder of the inbox folder. Now the rules created and any email that you received from a single-arm will be placed here automatically. Now, this is one way to other contexts. You can create more than one sub folders like Google, Social media boss, company name, and an email that you'll receive from your company will be placed here using the rule. You can create simple rules by assembly and go to any of the emails that you received. Let's say this Microsoft Store e-mail and right-click and go to rules. Always move messages from Microsoft Store. And in here, we need to create a new folder. Let's call it Microsoft. And click. Okay. Now this is the Microsoft folder. Click Okay. And now every email message that will come from this email will be placed inside this folder that's called Microsoft folder. As you can see, I already have four emails and now another note is that you will see a number here indicating the number of emails that have a 100 status. Now, selecting all of these as unread, as you can see. Now we have the number 1. Now click again. It will go. That's it. Now if you're looking to manage the rules that you just created, folder, e-mails and folders. You can go to the Home tab. And from the rules, you can see the two items or you can create a new rule, or you can manage Rules, alerts. Now, you can delete any of the rules that are placed here by simply hitting the delete button, you can create a new rule and follow along with this rules wizard to specify what you need to do. More messages to someone, to a folder like what we did, or more messages with specific words and the subject to a folder. And out of other rules. Now, you can even create and manage alerts. So if at all is executed, you can simply create an alert to see what will happen. Now since we do not have any alerts source setup, you need to create an alert source by creating or linking Microsoft SharePoint server. But this is like an advanced feature and it's rarely used. Now, going back here, you can create a new rule, delete, copy a specific rule. And these are all the rules that I have previously created. Now you can uncheck them or shrink them. You can delete them. And here you can see that all description, what each of these rule does apply this rule after this message arrived from App Store over to the folder called Apple and stop processing models. Now, click Okay. And that's it. These are the rules and this is how to create a folder and create a rule so that any new email that comes to your inbox will be placed inside this folder. If you have any question about folders and rules, I'm here to help. Thanks for watching this as partial. 8. 8 Quick Steps Feature in Microsoft Outlook: Hello and welcome to this new lesson in which we are going to talk about quick steps and Microsoft Outlook.
