Forget to Include an Attachment in Outlook? Get a Reminder!

Outlook-Attachment-ReminderDo you sometimes forget the file attachments you meant to include in an email message? Thanks to a free plugin for Outlook, now you can be alerted when you do just that.

Head over to CodeTwo‘s website and download the free Outlook Attachment Reminder. Install and configure it to scan for text in your email’s subject line and body text (such as “attachment” or “attached” or “see document”). When you press the send button, if the system finds that you included these phrases but did not attach a file, it will prompt you to do so before sending out the email.

Using Outlook to Access your Gmail Account

6a49gmailDo you have a Gmail account but prefer using Outlook to access your email? You can configure your Gmail to behave like a normal mailbox so that you can download it using your favorite desktop or mobile client such as Outlook. You can then access your mail offline, and use tools you already use with Outlook, such as Outlook’s mail formatting features and MS Office integration. Here’s how:

1.       First set up your Gmail account for POP or IMAP. If you use other Outlook features such as Tasks and Notes, consider usingGoogle App Sync for Outlook instead.

2.       In Outlook, add a new email account.  Remember to use your email address when setting up your account (including ‘@gmail.com’ or ‘@your_domain.com’). For the exact steps, follow the instructions here.

3.       Are you using a mail client other than Outlook? Check out instructions from Google here.
