We spend so much time at work dealing with email that it only makes sense to be as efficient as possible with email.
I use Microsoft Outlook and there’s a good chance you do as well. As you are slogging through all of your email have you ever wondered if there’s a better and more efficient way to work with all of this email? One of the great things about software is that there is quite often easier way to do things. To learn about these items you have to be curious enough to look for tools that will enhance the way you manage email.
Quite some time ago I happened upon a website: www.SperrySoftware.com and they make excellent Microsoft Outlook add-on’s. Over the years I have used quite a few of them and highly recommend that you take a look at these tools for Microsoft Outlook. Most add-on makers will allow free trials of their software and they are no exception.
Below is a list of some of the add-on’s that I have tried in the past that I urge you to take a look at these because I think they can really increase your efficiency when it comes to using Microsoft Outlook.
Here are a few of the add-on’s that I have used or tested:
Add Email Address
Automatically add as contacts people you reply to or send to. Become more organized by setting up the add-in to show you each name it adds or just have it automatically add contacts without any intervention by you. $24.95
Does your assistant or your boss need to be copied on email? This add-in will perform either a BCC (blind carbon copy) or a CC (carbon copy) automatically, every time you email. Easily create a record of important emails automatically. $24.95
Send out your newsletters, press releases and other announcements to individual recipients. Individually addressing emails allows your email to make it through more spam filters and raises response rates. $49.95
