If you spend a lot of time typing the same answers to questions you get repeatedly, create Quick Parts to insert that text into email replies in just a few clicks. No need to keep typing the same thing over and over again or having to find an old response to copy and paste.

Unfortunately, not all emails in the workplace come with an unsubscribe link. Day after day, emails arrive in your inbox that are just a distraction. Some common examples include:
Taking time off is wonderful until the moment you open your email after returning to work. If you work in an email-heavy company, you may have received hundreds of emails while you were out of the office, and now you’re faced with the difficult task of sorting through each one. With Outlook’s clean-up function (introduced in Outlook 2010), you can drastically reduce the number of emails you have to deal with in just a few clicks—whether you're coming back from vacation or you just have too many emails piled up. The clean-up function removes all email replies that are duplicated in a later thread, allowing you to read a single thread instead of dozens of individual emails. To clean up your inbox quickly:

Create a reminder by adding these emails to Outlook’s task list:
In Outlook 365, you can create a structure of folders for organizing emails. Many people use the folder structure for archiving emails, but folders are also a great way to manage incoming emails as tasks and get them out of your inbox view. We're going to use these folders to do email triage, organize the messy inbox, and overcome email overload. To do this, create three new folders under your inbox folder. The first is a "To Do" folder, and the second and third are subfolders called "Follow Up" and "Someday." These loosely follow the Getting Things Done® or GTD® methodology of organizing tasks. Getting Things Done® and GTD® are registered trademarks of the David Allen Company. To create these folders:
Editing multiple teams one by one is time consuming, especially when they all need the same inputs. The phenomenon is frustrating for administrators who are supposed to work in a fast-paced environment dealing with hundreds of thousands of teams. Ability to update a bunch of records in a snap reduces context switching and improves user efficiency.
