Following are the four best outlook features now on Outlook
1. You can send your emails when you want
It is not always necessary that the best time to write an email and the best time to send an email always align. So with the new Send Later feature, you can write an email now and schedule it to be sent automatically at the perfect time. Once you are done drafting your email, click the drop-down next to Send and then select Send Later. Choose the date and time to send the email and the message is saved to your Drafts folder. When the scheduled time comes, the email is automatically sent—you don’t even need to have Outlook or your computer open.
This feature is available to Office Insider Fast as well as now to Office 365 subscribers too.
2. You can use read and delivery receipts to track your emails
As a professional you always worry that your email have been read or not. Outlook for Mac now supports both read and delivery receipts. A delivery receipt confirms delivery of your email message to the recipient’s mailbox, but not that the recipient has seen it or read it. A read receipt confirms that your message was opened.
In Outlook for Mac, the message recipient can decline to send read receipts.
3. Now you can spend less time writing emails
You are familiar with the word template and it is one thing that you can use over and over again. Similarly now you have Email templates that are great for sending messages that include information that infrequently changes from message to message. Compose and save a message as a template and then reuse it when you want it. New information can be added before the template is sent as an email message.
4. Creating calendar events and tasks from emails
Emails contain the important information you need to get things done throughout the day. Often, however, those tasks need to be scheduled as part of your day to get completed on time. You can now drag and drop emails directly to your calendar to reserve that time. The subject of the email becomes the calendar subject, and the body of the email goes in the notes field. For those of you who are task users, you can do the same thing. Drag the email to your task view to create new items.
Besides these four new features also setting the outlook account now is easy. Previously, you needed to know details about what type of account you have (e.g., Office 365 or Exchange, IMAP or POP). Now you can simply enter your email address and Outlook detects your account settings and guides you through the process. Also if you’ve signed in to other Office apps before launching Outlook for the first time, you will be asked if you want to add that account automatically. The improved account setup experience is available to all Outlook Mac users on version 15.34 (170515).
