Part V: Organize with Microsoft Outlook

Part V: Organize with Microsoft Outlook

Are you the type of person who has a day planner, a Pocket PC personal digital assistant (PDA), a Rolodex, and a to-do list—and you never use any of them consistently? Welcome to the majority of the human race. We have so many tools to help us get organized, but who has the time to do it religiously?

If only we’d remember that we have almost everything we need to be organized right there on our desktops, in the unassuming icon of Microsoft Outlook. This multitalented program includes not only a full-featured e-mail utility (which is what it’s best known for), but also a calendar, a journal, a task scheduler, a notepad, and a contact manager. And the best thing is that it works seamlessly with all the other Microsoft Office XP programs.

Chapter 14, “E-mailing with Microsoft Outlook,” introduces you to the Outlook window and shows you the basics of setting up e-mail accounts and sending and receiving, printing, and deleting e-mail. Chapter 15, “Organizing with Microsoft Outlook,” shows you how to weed out your junk mail, track and manage your contacts, add ideas to your journal, and work with tasks and notes. And in Chapter 16, “Scheduling with Microsoft Outlook,” you'll learn to use Outlook to organize your day, scheduling tasks and meetings, inviting others to meetings, and printing and coordinating calendars.
