New Series: Down To A Science

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Have you ever heard the saying, she has that down to a science? I get that quite a lot when it comes to organizing. I have so many different systems that I use for different things - and I will be sharing them with you with this new series! 

For the inaugural post I'm going to share how I organize my e-mail client! I have four different e-mail addresses that need to be checked everyday so I forward them all to Microsoft Outlook. I used to use Mozilla Thunderbird (I highly recommend it if you are just starting out), but graduated to Outlook a few months ago.

If you're unfamiliar with Outlook, check out this video:

This is my setup (click to enlarge): 

Firstly I have all of my e-mail addresses ready to go in the viewing pane. No more wasted time logging in and out of email addresses for me! The setup was so easy and straightforward - I wish I had done it sooner.
As you can see I make great use of the folders. I am always terrified to delete an important e-mail, so I file them away using labeled folders. After about 2 months I go through each folder and delete e-mails that are no longer needed.

My favourite aspect of Outlook is the category function. You can assign each e-mail to a certain category - which makes it super simple for referencing. 

I love Outlook and all of its features!
