Find even more needles in that haystack
(Outlook 2007)

Is Outlook an overstuffed, out-of-control beast and you cannot find a thing? Well, apart from Outlook 2007's new Instant Search facility (see tip_292.php) there is another great new feature that can help you find all messages that have the same subject of the email you are reading. It can also be used to locate any other messages you received from the sender of the email you are reading. And all of that without leaving the message you are currently in!

Here's how:

  1. Open your email message as normal.
  2. On the Message tab, in the Find group, click on the Related button.
  3. Select Related Messages or Messages from Sender.

You don't even need to know which folder the other email messages are in!

That's it for this year. Here's to a good 2010; learn heaps and have fun!
