reading email 5
T o receive email messages that have been sent to you, Microsoft Out- look 2013 connects to an email server on which messages are stored (such as servers located on a local area network or the Internet) and down- loads the messages (or copies of them) to your Inbox folder. From there, you can read a message, reply, forward it to someone, flag it for later action, and open file attachments. In most cases, messages that you down- load are deleted from the server automatically after they’re downloaded. Outlook can also filter out junk email by placing in the Junk Email folder any mail that contains certain words or phrases or that arrives from cer- tain addresses. You can adjust these filters to block mail from unwanted senders while still allowing through the mail that you want to read. You also can set up Outlook Rules, which help you to manage your messages by moving them to designated folders, flagging them, or otherwise pro- cessing messages in accordance with rules that you define.
Another thing I’ve tried to do in this book is to find and docu- ment the easiest way to accomplish a task. Excel 2013 often provides a multitude of methods to accomplish a single end result—which can be daunting or delightful, depending on the way you like to work. If you tend to stick with one favorite and familiar approach, I think the methods described in this book are the way to go. If you like trying out alternative techniques, go ahead! The intuitiveness of Excel 2013 invites exploration, and you’re likely to discover ways of doing things that you think are easier or that you like better than mine. If you do, great! It’s exactly what the developers of Excel 2013 had in mind when they provided so many alternatives.
TIP In PowerPoint 2013, layouts with content now include both bulleted text and graphic/multimedia content tools within each content placeholder. You must pick one type of content to add to each placeholder. When you use the tool to add one type of content to a placeholder, the other tools disappear.
I’ve also made the assumption that you already have Word 2013 installed on your computer, either as a stand-alone program or as part of Office 2013. If you don’t have the other Office programs, a small group of the tasks in this book won’t apply, but everything else will be the same. If you haven’t installed Office 2013 yet, there are several ways you can get it. In addition to the traditional CD-based package, there is an Internet delivery method that will automatically keep you up to date with the latest patches. Internet delivery is standard for Microsoft Office 365, a subscription plan that accommodates installation on multiple devices.
T his book provides a quick reference to specific techniques for working with Microsoft Access 2013 and guides you with clear pictures that you can easily follow to replicate the procedures described. Although the book is designed to be used without sample databases, enabling you to dip into each method without having progressed through previous steps, it does provide links from which you can download samples with the same data- set I have used to help you more closely follow the examples.
Keeping track of your contacts’ addresses, phone numbers, and other information is one of the main uses for Outlook, and Section 6, “Working with the People Hub,” acquaints you with this feature, which in previous versions of Outlook was referred to as the Contacts folder. You learn how to add social network- ing accounts such as Facebook and LinkedIn to Outlook. You also learn how to add new contacts, view and change contacts, and find a particular person. The section also explains how to organize contacts, schedule meetings for a contact, and com- municate with people through the Contacts folder. The section finishes with a look at how to share contacts with others, keep track of phone calls, and associate contacts with items such as tasks.
• The table below lists key Outlook files that you may want to back up in addition to your Personal Folder(s). You will need to completely exit Outlook prior to copying these files. Depending upon your configuration some or all of these files may be present in your Outlook directory.
Content for an e-mail is pulled from a variety of sources—tables from Web pages, charts and graphics from documents, presentations, or workbooks, or content from your notes or other e-mail messages. Save time when reusing content within Outlook or across applications. Pasting content in Outlook 2010 has never been easier. Paste with Live Preview enables you to preview various Paste Options so you can visually determine how your pasted content will look prior to actually pasting. No more using Undo and trying again, Paste with Live Preview helps you get it right the first time.

• Disable Links in Phishing Messages: Phishing isn’t just incorrectly spelled; it’s a way of doing something very wrong to lots of unsus- pecting e-mail recipients. That’s the term used for an e-mail mes- sage that tries to impersonate a bank or financial institution in an effort to steal your personal information. It’s the first step in an identity theft operation. This kind of crime is on the rise, so Outlook now tries to detect false e-mails and disable the Web links they contain. Even so, you should never give personal financial information or passwords to anyone in response to an e-mail mes- sage. Go straight to your financial institution by phone or log on to their Web site directly (not by clicking the links in an e-mail). You could be the victim of all kinds of bad stuff if you’re not careful. • Warn About Suspicious Domains: Some places have a bad reputa-
I hope you would find this small compilation of useful shortcuts for MicrosoftOutlook handy specially when in need of performing repetitive task. If you are able to recall and use even 50 percent of the shortcuts it is likely to double your productivity with Microsoft office – Outlook application.
Microsoft Access 2013 takes a lot of the difficult and mundane work out of creating and customizing a database by providing database templates. Access also provides templates for common elements that you might want to plug into a database. These application parts consist of sets of objects—a table and related forms, queries, or reports—that together provide a complete, functioning part of a database, ready for you to customize. If none of the templates meet your needs, you can create databases manually. However, an empty database is no more useful than an empty document or worksheet. It is only when you fill a database with data (referred to as populating a database), that it starts to serve a purpose. In this chapter, you’ll examine web app templates and create a desktop database from a template. You’ll also create a table manually. Next, you’ll adjust the display of a table to meet your needs. Finally, you’ll define relationships between tables. By the end of this chapter, you’ll have a desktop database that contains a few tables and you’ll understand a bit about how the database tables you will use for the exercises in the remaining chap- ters of the book were created.

Templates can also save time when you enter frequently used information anywhere in Outlook. For example, you can create an invitation template for a meeting that is regularly held with the same set of colleagues. The meeting appointment can contain the names of the attendees, the subject of the meeting, a location and reminder and additional text, graphics and charts in the body of the message. Each time you open the template to use it, all you need do is change the date and time of the meeting and the message request is ready to be sent.
Below are examples of an easy way to calculate how long it will take to complete a migration. Create a simple spreadsheet that lists the total number of gigabytes to migrate, the quantity of workstations you will use, and then the rate of speed your system will migrate. Then, enter a simple formula to calculate how long your migration will complete with one workstation. In these screenshot examples, your formula would be: ((Gigabytes/Rate)/PC’s).
