Additional Outlook Training Resources
The MS Office Ribbon
Microsoft Office provides easy access to commands through the tab formatted "Ribbon." This replaces the menus and toolbars found in previous versions. The purpose of the Ribbon is to keep commands visible while you work instead of hiding them under menus and toolbars.
The MS Office Button
The Microsoft Office Button is located in the upper left-hand corner of the program window and replaces the File menu found in previous versions of Microsoft Office. The Office Button menu contains basic file management commands including, New, Open, Save, Save as, Print and Close.
Managing Mailbox Size
It is important to keep your Exchange mailbox within the 500 MB limit. When your mailbox fills to 90% of your quota, you will receive a warning email notification, indicating that you are approaching your limit. Once you reach your quota you will be able to receive messages, but you will not be able to send them. The size of your mailbox may be checked at anytime by opening the Properties of your mailbox from Outlook. Larger mailboxes may be requested if authorized and paid for by your department.
These resources will help you manage your mailbox size.
