Tip of the Week From the LPM Department

Outlook Tip—Use “Conversation Clean Up” to Eliminate Redundant Messages

Outlook 2010 has a cool feature few people know about. We’ve all sent an email to multiple people asking for their feedback. As an example, Suzanne sends a message to four other people—either individually or on a list serve. Bob will open Suzanne’s email and reply directly back to her. Tom will also open Suzanne’s email and reply directly back to her. Jim replies to the email sent by Tom, which now has Tom and Jim’s response—but not Suzanne’s. Conversation Clean Up evaluates the contents of each message in a conversation thread. If the message is completely contained within one of the replies, the previous message is deleted.

For more information, and detailed instructions on using this feature, click here. Give it a try. I’m sure you’ll love it!
