Course Description Overview:
Every day, millions of email messages are exchanged among people within and between organizations. Email has a ubiquitous presence in the lives of many, and it's likely that email technologies will continue to evolve with the changing needs of workplaces. After all, email communication has not been replaced, or its growth slowed, as many predicted with the rise of social media and the widespread adoption of mobile technologies. Many organizations have implemented mail management systems that combine the back-end power of Microsoft® Exchange Server and the front-end intuitive user interface of Microsoft® Office Outlook® 2019. 

In this course, you will customize command sets, configure mail accounts, set global options, perform advanced searches, apply filters to intercept mail and control spam, create rules to automate mail management tasks, work with calendars and contacts, manage tasks, preserve data with archives and data files, as well as share and delegate access to your Outlook items. In short, you'll work with a wide range of features and options and, in so doing, understand why Outlook is a leading personal management system. 

This material will benefit users of any current Office version. The classroom environment setup is based on Office 2019. This course builds upon the foundational knowledge presented in the Microsoft ® Office Outlook® 2019/2021: Part 1 course and will help you customize a communication system well-suited to your work style.
