I get so annoyed when:
People people get sloppy with mail subject lines, and type things in that don't reflect the actual conversation.
It's so nice to see the rare email conversation which is actually about the subject line.
When you look in your folders, everything's all neat and orderly.
That's how it was when I worked at IBM:
Subject: "Thinkpad S/N 12345ABCDE still in repair?" Now, that's
an email that makes sense!
It makes it so hard to find anything!
And, I really don't care for having to depend on a global search to find something for me.
I know, I know...people rave about the ease and speed of global searches, but I want to be able to find things by myself, thank you,
in case something is making Outlook
really slow unable to open
(like, for instance, now).
And I know I'm asking the wrong crowd, but please, don't say it (well, maybe it's this, maybe it's that...) I need to be able to find my stuff without playing amateur techie all day!
And yes, I can find it on gmail in a global search (and did, a few days ago, while Outlook lagged), I'm not totally against it when it's practical - it's incredibly fast - but what if I have no connection?
I used to use only a certain email program that I knew would allow the user to change the actual email received, subject and body, until I found out Outlook did, too. I was always editing subjects and content as well to make them consice and orderly
I guess I could still do that now in Outlook, perhaps I will.
Thanks Josh, this thread is fun...
