  2. ICT Tip #61 - Related Messages in Outlook 2010

    Another email tip this week, because there's so much people don't seem to know. ICT Tip 061 - Related Messages in Outlook.doc
  3. ICT Tip #60 - Searching Emails in Webmail (Exchange 2007)

    by , 29th January 2014 at 10:29 AM
    So after a bit of a break to let me build up a buffer between work and here again (as not every tip I send out round school is relevant to everyone, so some get skipped), regular service can resume.

    Picking up from the last proper tip, ICT Tip #59 - Searching Emails (Outlook 2010) - Blogs - EduGeek.net, this week is ICT Tip 060 - Searching Webmail.doc. This is based on the Webmail service of Exchange 2007, so may not be relevant to everyone, but you might get some mileage out of it.

    Warning: distribution of this week's tip may result in an increase in Comic Sans MS in your inbox. Use with caution.

  5. ICT Tip #54 - Out of Office in Webmail

    by , 29th October 2013 at 03:59 PM
    Continued from last time, some more on Out of Office, but as done through Exchange 2007's webmail service: ICT Tip 054 - Using Webmail to set up Out of Office.doc

    It's probably accurate for Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2010 as well, bar a few screenshot changes.
  6. ICT Tip #44 - Adding Work Email to a Smartphone

    ICT Tip 044 - Work Email on Smartphones.doc

    Y'all will have to do a bit of the work yourselves this week - I've stripped out all the settings specific to my domain and replaced with them [placeholders in squarebrackets]. Go through and fill out the details as appropriate to your network. We use Exchange here, so it may not be appropriate for your network, though I'd have thought most email services were capable of supporting smartphone email.

  7. ICT Tip #18 - Avoiding Scam Emails

    by , 14th May 2013 at 02:12 PM
    Back in time for an older tip, not that it matters to anyone but me. There's a chunk of school-specific tips from 42-44 so in an attempt to maintain my buffer, I've gone back and pulled out an ever-relevant tip I wrote when we changed email provider and started to suffer an onslaught of spam.

    ICT Tip 018 - Avoiding Scam E-mails.doc

    It's a bit longer at 4 pages, but some people require a comprehensive dismantling of their naďvety.

    Just had this rubbish through the door in postcard format:

    Your request for an EcoSplash has been received. (No, We never sent a request!)

    If you don't require it contact us on... (Stop there. We didn't order one so no!)

    You will need to give us your address so that we can remove your details (And confirm I am an idiot? No thanks!)

    OK, so I heard a great quote on twitter a while back:

    "In 5 years time, running an exchange server will be like running your own nuclear power plant to heat your home"

    This sounds like a sensible statement to me and since we have an aging Exchange 2003 server I thought I would look into being an early adopter of their "Live@EDU" cloud based email system.
