Microsoft Outlook is the Windows desktop client of Pepperdine's messaging system. It includes customizable email, scheduling, task and contact tracking tools to help efficiently manage office activities. Users looking for online access to Outlook, should visit the webmail pages.
Best Practices and Uses
- Process emails using the 4 D'sWhen reading a message, decide whether to:
- Delete it.
- Do it (respond or file for reference).
- Delegate (forward) it.
- Defer it (using categories and flags) for a second review in a task list.
- Use rules to send emails that need to be read to the Inbox and let the rest flow to distribution list folders, untouched.
- Create personal folders to save and organize email
Note: Messages in Personal Folders are stored on the local computer's hard drive and not on the server. If a computer's hard drive ceases to work or the .pst file is deleted or becomes corrupted, the messages that have been placed in this folder will be lost.
