From time-waster to productivity booster: change the way you use Microsoft Outlook  


Few things have greater impact on your productivity than the way you employ Outlook. Too many people waste time on unnecessary tasks that could be managed automatically or handled in a fraction of the time. Use this Outlook course to make the leap from being a mere user to being an Outlook master.

  • Getting around the Outlook interface 
  • Formatting and sending email 
  • Managing incoming messages 
  • Tracking messages 
  • Using Recall & Resend 


This course is the first step in Mastering Outlook. Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll want to continue learning about Outlook Calendar, Tasks, People, and more in our Advanced course.
