MailRaider - open Outlook .msg files on your Mac

One of the more frustrating things I found when moving from Windows to a Mac in a business environment was receiving email messages that contained other messages as attachments. This is a fairly common thing for Outlook users to do, and it doesn't usually cause problems because Outlook can happily open those messages. It's not very good email etiquette and you should avoided doing it if possible...

Microsoft speeds up Outlook 2007

Yesterday Microsoft released an update to Outlook 2007 to help speed up the downloading of messages and reduce the annoying and highly criticized freezing associated with moving or deleting messages. Microsoft indicated that the problem stemmed from RSS feeds, email, and calendar files all being stored in the same .PST file which as one might imagine could grow in size rather quickly depending on...

Outlook on the Desktop

Outlook on the Desktop is a free application built on .Net by Michael Scriv. It allows you to pick any one of the main Outlook views (Inbox, Calendar, Tasks, etc), and display it directly on your desktop. The display is shown in a mildly opaque way, so that you can still see your desktop wallpaper (or in my case, icons) beneath the Outlook display. However, the coolest part of this utility is the...

Junk Email Reporting Tool for Outlook

Dealing with spam in Microsoft Outlook used to be a pretty big problem. Outlook has had the "Junk Mail" feature forever, but until Outlook 2003 it was pretty terrible at comprehensively eliminating spam from your inbox. Outlook 2003, however, is a different beast when it comes to spam detection and elimination. In fact, it's gotten so good that I no longer advocate running a third-party spam...

Evolution: Outlook replacement, now for Windows

Evolution is a Personal Information Management program that has been popular in the Linux world for a few years. It looks startlingly like Microsoft Outlook, and in fact is intended as a replacement for Outlook. Evolution's claim to fame is the ability to connect to an Exchange server with most of the same functionality afforded to Outlook clients. And while I'm not sure how I feel about the...

Windows Live Local for Microsoft Outlook

I am not a user of Microsoft Outlook, but I know my share of people who are attached to it like they are to their own head. If you're such a person, you will perhaps be interested in a Windows Live Local add-on for Microsoft Outlook. The free add-on from Microsoft (Windows Genuine Advantage check required) integrates the Windows Live Local mapping service with the email/calendar/PIM client. It...

Getting Things Done Software Systems (Part 1 of 2)

Native Windows (offline-capable) software Scope While there are a great number of ways to put a Getting Things Done system into action on a Windows PC, I'd like to compare and contrast the benefits of using native Windows software like Outlook (arguably the most popular personal information management software on Windows) and handheld computers (in this case a Pocket PC) versus using online...
