I'm trying to keep the players and parents up to date on everything. So I've been using my wife's computer and using our personal account for all of it. I'm using Outlook 2003 (not Outlook express) and have found 3 things that absolutely annoy me and make me so unproductive.
1. I cannot Send and File a message. I must send the message. Then I have to go to my Sent and find it and move it to a folder. Seriously? I know, it's all because of how Outlook stores the messages. It's doesn't add a pointer, it makes a copy of the message. What? More on that some other day.
2. The Escape key does not allow me to send. I can save it or cancel it but not send. Come on, I'm typing along and simply hit 'Esc', I should be prompted to send the mail. You aren't going to give me an option to file it anyhow (see #1) so just let me send it for crying out loud.
3. Delivery Failures = Fail. I can't resend from the Delivery Failure notice. Again, I've got to go thru my Sent and find it and forward it.
So I fail to see how it could be any better than Lotus Notes. I've yet to find anything better or easier to use and it certainly hasn't made me more productive. Maybe I'm just so used to the ease of use I have with my Lotus Notes client that I'm spoiled.
