I have recently been thinking about how best to set up my email thought outlook having read the 4 hour workweek. In the book Timothy Ferriss suggest answering your emails only twice a day, which I think is a great idea, the problem is that I want to be able to send emails more requently than that.
A friend of mine told me that 99% of requests for new functionality for microsoft products is actually already available, people just don’t know where to look. I have been trying for ages to set up emails which would send and not recieve, and finally worked out how to do it!
- Set up an emails address in the usual way
- In outlook tools > options > Send/receive, create a send/receive group for your new email account which only sends email
- When you want to send and not recieve emails, select this account only from the send/receive drop down box on the outlook mail menu
