Missing Drafts folder in Outlook 2007

I’ve been mystified all week.  I’ve lost my Drafts folder in Outlook 2007.  I know it’s there, hidden somewhere in my profile as if I try to create a new folder, then I’m told that another folder already exists with the same name.  I’ve tried searching for it but get nothing.  But this morning I thought I’d start to think laterally instead and looked towards creating a new search folder to find all of my draft emails.

Then you need to select the Create a custom search folder option

Give the Search folder a name  like Drafts and click the criteria button.  Then select the Field:all mail fields: In Folder

Change the condition to contains or is (exactly) and the value to Drafts and it appears in the search folder – with all of your draft files (hopefully not too many)

Right click on the folder and click on Add to Favourite folders

and it’s there where you can look at it.  So At leas I can find those mails I was half way through before I got distracted – and I’m sure someone reading this will tell me how to get my main Drafts folder visible again.  Probably by some complex Powershell script, I’ll bet 🙂

Microsoft Tag

I’m having a play with Microsoft Tag as I got so enthusiastic about the possibilities of those neat little QC barcode scanners when I found them.   These tags are in colour though which gives opportunities to get some patterns forming.  So I’ve logged in and had great fun playing around with them.  Very easy indeed – but I haven’t found a website with a very pretty pattern yet…

So where does this image take you?  An easy one for you 🙂

 

This is useful as it allows you to set campaigns for your marketing – and specify an end date for the tag so you can gauge responses on the fly so to speak. 

Chris and Koen have some more info about it

Mr. Mobile gets a new blog

(That sounds like the title of a book by Roger Hargreaves doesn’t it?)

Jason-Langridge.jpgI keep forgetting to mention – but thanks to Jason for reminding me / nagging me, but Jason has moved his blog.  His new blog is at:

http://www.mrmobileblog.com/ He has nothing to do with the shop of the same name in London by the way – I don’t think he’s moving into the phone sales business – well not there anyway 😉

Nice new blog look Jason – I didn’t like the blog skin you used to use – this one is much more easy on the eye.  I’m looking forward to all of that extra information you’re going to share with us now eh?

Watch this space…
