Key Points

  • By default, messages you receive appear in your Inbox. Outlook alerts you to new messages in several ways, all of which are customizable.

  • You can see the first few lines of each message in AutoPreview, open a message in its own window, or preview messages in the Reading Pane.

  • You can preview message attachments in the Reading Pane.

  • You can reply to the message sender only or to the sender and all other recipients. You can also forward a message and its attachments to other people.

  • You can create tasks or calendar items from received e-mail messages.

  • You can print a message when you need a paper copy of its information.
