While zero inbox is a great goal for e-mail management, it seems to be an unattainable goal for many of us. Even those who claim success at this usually do it by moving e-mail from the Inbox to other Outlook folders, some of which may be pretty full. So this video tip is very brief (just over three minutes) and it shows you how finding a particular e-mail or group of e-mails in Outlook folders is almost always more easily done by search rather than any other method. (Note: You will want to view this video with the full screen view to see the details)


To learn lots of really great Outlook tips, you can purchase these nice books from the ABA by my friend Ben Schorr: The Lawyer's Guide to Microsoft Outlook 2010 or The Lawyer's Guide to Microsoft® Outlook 2007. The Outlook 2007 book is actually cheaper on Amazon.
