Outlook Tips 3
by Bill McFarland

It has been discovered, by Steve Williams, Human Environmental Sciences computer specialist, that we can speed up some Outlook responses by  a simply click. Your Outlook will start up faster, and may do some other things faster with this change. This applies ONLY to those users in the Extension NT domain (like all the county offices).

If you are a user in the Extension NT domain, you will want to make this change. After opening Outlook:

  1. Click on Tools
  2. Click on Services
  3. Highlight Microsoft Exchange Server, and click the Properties button
  4. Click the Advanced tab
  5. Go to the Logon network security box and click on the down arrow to pull down the options
  6. Click on None.
  7. Click on OK, and another OK.

Then close Outlook and open it again and see if there is a significant speed up in getting started. You will still need to enter your email account and password as always. You should notice no difference in Outlook, except a possible speed up, especially on opening.

If you are using the Calendar feature of Outlook, you may have noticed that Memorial Day is incorrectly marked for May 24 instead of May 31 in Outlook Calendar. If you don't have any holidays at all in your Outlook calendar, you may turn them on by: Click on Tools; Options; Calendar Options button under the Preferences tab; click the Add Holidays button, and make sure that United States has the check mark. Then click on OK a number of times to return to your Outlook window.
