Have you heard about the Outlook Boot? Check out some of the awesome features.
This feature allows you to define any number of pre-defined frequently used text fragments and then to insert them into any email with single click.
Firstly you need to define your templates. To do this, use “Edit templates…” menu item either in Mail compose Ribbon (Fig. 1) or from context menu (Fig. 2 – this is only available in Outlook 2010 due to technical limitations)

When templates are ready you can use them with either ribbon or context menu by clicking on template name (“Template 1”, “Template 2” on Fig. 1-2). This will insert your text into cursor position
This simple tool allows you to reply easily to emails with many recipients without losing attachments as opposed to standard Outlook’s Reply to All which excludes all attachments from reply. The feature is accessible both from main Outlook window and from email viewer (Fig. 4 and 4.1)

To use this feature you need to enable it in General options (Fig.6) and then send email with given subject to account your Outlook is checking. Here’s example of such email:
subject: Out of office: %s
body: I’m out of office from %StartTime %StartDate until %EndTime %EndDate
startdate: 04/08/2011 08:00:00
enddate: 04/30/2011 15:00:00
You don’t need to specify all these fields at once. Just specify those appropriate to your task type and those you want to change (for example, enddate)
Please also pay attention to date and weekdays/months fields format. You always should use this format regardless of your regional date/time display settings
Mail encryption feature allows you to protect your correspondence in seamless way; you just press “Encrypt with OutlookRobot” button in mail composer window and then when sending this email OutlookRobot will encrypt it and all attached files. On receiving side encrypted email will be recognized by your counterpart’s OutlookRobot and decrypted automatically
Note: this feature only works if both sender and recipient use Outlook and have OutlookRobot installed
Just press “Encrypt with OutlookRobot” button when composing new email. Then write and send your email as usual. It will encrypted automatically in the moment of sending

You need Outlook with OutlookRobot add-in installed in order to read encrypted messages sent by another OutlookRobot user. If you have both then such emails should be decoded automatically, but in some cases it requires manual decoding
If you receive encrypted message similar to one on Fig. 13 then you should decrypt it manually using “Decrypt email” button on toolbar / ribbon.

If your company has developed its own opt-in customer data list from your website, you can now upload a standard .csv file directly into your Outlook Address Book. Additionally, you can export your Outlook Address Book as a .csv file.
When an incoming email contains the EXECUTIVES NAME with FULL CONTACT INFORMATION BLOCK, you can Auto Post all of their contact information fields into your Outlook Address Book. Microsoft Outlook only has an option to automate the auto insertion of just the email address and that only occurs when you send the email.
This enhancement auto inserts (first and last name, full postal record, email address, all phone numbers and notes) directly into your Outlook Address Book creating a tremendous time saver. It gets even better—-Instead of just being reactive to incoming emails you can be proactive too: You can actually send an email either individually or to everyone in your address book, at any time, which contains their “contact information form” asking your contacts to fill in any missing contact information fields! The completed forms automatically update your Address Book!
It even gets better! Every email you open you will have an adjustable right hand side bar contact information panel on that email sender right next to senders email so you don’t have waste time going to your Address book to run a search for anyone! Additionally, this side bar contains a Notes Box which allows you to make notes into their contact information form which of course stays with every email they send for you to review customer service or sales history.
If you’re like most people you never want to interrupt your train of thought by taking the time to copy and paste every information field of an executive into your address book. Then when you need that executives contact information in the future you are forced to waste time doing a search to find and old email to scroll through to see –what maybe an “out of date”—contact signature block! No more of that wasted time. Time is money! These minutes add up to hours of wasted time every year!
You will say: How the “blank” did I ever function without this!
Added into the Microsoft Outlook Header Ribbon is one-click access to an unlimited list of your key phrases that relate to detailed, paragraphs of “frequently used stored information!”
This enhancement is very useful for customer service or sales people who often have to explain the same information to many different people throughout the day. You simply hold your cursor where you want to add a stored passage, hit one button and choose what message you want to add.
This also has the added benefit of making sure all your customer service and sales people are “singing the same song” at your business.
Outlook Wizard has the ability to answer emails with ease with this very simple yet rich featured Microsoft Outlook add-on.
I am out of the office till 2pm Eastern and will review your email when I get back.
One of the features of Outlook Wizard auto responder is that it uses your existing auto responder settings and allows you to Change Your Message Remotely From Your Smart Phone.
For example: Your original message says: I am out of the office till 2pm Eastern and will review your email when I get back.
I originally thought I was going to be back at 2pm but I am running late and it now looks like I will be back at 4pm Eastern.
Now you can send pre-created email messages at a specific date or automate the sending of unlimited periodic (daily, weekly, monthly) follow-up emails!
Use this feature to contact others or as a convenient reminder system to yourself! Tremendous feature allows you to automatically follow-up on your sales presentations or customer service issues.
The system also has dynamic attachment support an option which will automatically grab the latest version of a document. The files will be attached just before sending so you always can get latest version. To make things easier, the scheduler supports not only attaching single files, but also all files from a given directory!
If you have certain critical documents that get frequently updated, you can as a security measure send the documents to a free email service account as a back-up.
You always can check and modify your scheduled emails by navigating to “Scheduled Emails” folder in your Outlook Folder Tree (or just by pressing “Scheduled Emails” button on ribbon / toolbar.)
To use the scheduler, just write your email as usual, but instead of pressing “Send” just press the “Schedule this email” button and the very user friendly interface instructs you step by step!
If you did not have Outlook open at the time of the scheduled email-the feature has a 24 hour period in which the scheduled emails will still be sent at the time you open Outlook.
Let’s say you have a large address list to send and this poses a few challenges:
(Problem One): Impersonal Emails:
Instead of using the more personal approach of emailing using the “To: Line” insert all those emails into the email headers “BCC: Line” so as to not disclose your emails addresses to all recipients; but this is a very impersonal approach.
(Problem Two) Group emailing, especially under BCC option causes your email to have problems getting through email filters as email filters flag such emails.
(Problem Three) Limitations on the Amount of Emails included within on SENDING. Almost all ISP’s will impose some limit on the amount of email addresses that can be included within each send.
The above problems are all solved by….
When you create your bulk email use place holders: $First_Name $Last-Name or $Full_Name in the subject line and /or the email body and the actual names from your Outlook Address Book will be auto inserted for the place holders to personalize each email. Then simply take your entire bulk list and insert it into the ( “To: Line:” ) not the BCC Line because Outlook Wizard is going to replicate your entire email presentation for every email address and personally send them all individually! Now everyone will get your email and believe that you took the time to write to them personally and they are addresses by name within the email headers To: Line! Tremendous for Sales Follow-ups and customer service or simply sending an email to a group of friends!
Outlooks color categories is a great feature to organize contacts as it has several advantages over developing separate email distribution lists; however under Outlook there’s no built-in support for emailing your contacts by selected categories! That problem is now history as Our “Send to Category” feature offers a fast and easy solution for emailing your categories. Just click the “Send to category” dropdown button in the main Outlook window and simply select which category you want to email and your email will be created automatically!
Remember your color categories can organize not only your contacts, but organize other outlook items (like emails, appointments) too. Send to Category feature ignores all non-contact items marked with a given color and if there aren’t any contacts at all in selected category you will even get a warning message so you can’t make a mistake.
There are several new “email sniffer software” software programs on the market which allow thieves to simply enter your businesses domain name and read all your business emails as if you were sending a postcard in the mail. Thieves can actually target key executives email addresses and read the content of your company emails.
Please don’t think that we using scare tactics! Just go to Google and enter “email sniffer software” or “email packet sniffer software” and you will be amazed at the software available that can intercept your messages.
This security hole is now plugged with Outlook Wizard, so “email sniffer” programs can no longer read your emails as our solution is an end to end solution.
The encryption is built right into Microsoft Outlook and automatically encrypts and decrypts the email body and all attachments between users of the Outlook Wizard. The encryption algorithm is so secure that it will comply with any Federal or State Privacy Regulations in your industry (e.g. GLBA, HIPAA, 201 CMR 17). It is important that you understand that Outlook Wizard uses: Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
AES is a standard adopted by the U.S. Government as noted by Wikipedia: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard)
Because Outlook Wizard is the only Outlook encryption that also has a fully functional free version the amount of users are making this USA standard the most widely used international encryption system. This is very beneficial because with tens of millions of people being added this year alone and over 100 million anticipated by Dec 31st 2011; every time that you send and receive a message in or outside of your company the sender and receiver using Outlook Wizard Encryption does not have to hit the Decrypt button when receiving a fellow Outlook Wizard user’s encrypted email—its automatic encryption and automatic decryption!
At Outlook Wizard we like to say that our users are “On ICE”—- International Convenient Encryption (ICE).
Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) will shut you down in a heartbeat if you have more than “X number” of emails going out within an hour. It is a blanking pain in the ass to divide your bulk list and set a timer to wait till the next hour to send the next batch of emails out! We solved this problem by adding “leak out” capability to Outlook. Now you can tell Outlook to “Take A Leak” as you simply adjust the amount of emails that you want sent per hour to stay under your ISP’s limit.
Here are some popular email providers and their rate limits and SMPT limits.
Please note, providers change their email policies frequently. It is always a good idea to contact your provider and ask them about their email send rate before starting your bulk email campaign.
Google Gmail Email Send Rate Limit & Restrictions
MSN Hotmail Email Send Rate Limit & Restrictions
Hotmail email send limit – no more than 100 recipients per day.
Yahoo Mail – Email Send Rate Limits & Other Email Restrictions
Lycos Mail – Email Send Limits & Restrictions
Lycos Mail email send limit – max 25 recipients per message and max 250 emails per day
AOL Email Send (Rate) Limits
I will be happy to provide you with a list of email providers with higher hourly / daily limits, just drop me an email and ask for the email providers list.
