Description

Do you ever think about how much time you spend composing and sending email messages in Outlook daily? Chances are it takes up as much as 20% to 30% of your day. Cutting that time in half would allow you to reclaim substantial time for more valuable tasks. This course shows how to use every unique feature available in Outlook to streamline efficiency of email compositions and enhance the quality of the message content. Note: This is one of two Outlook email courses we offer. While this course focuses on the outbound side of Outlook email, our other course titled "Managing Your Inbox With Maximum Efficiency" focuses on the inbound side of Outlook. Together, these two courses will provide you with a significant productivity boost. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
