In Outlook I heavily use some favorite/search folders (for instance, the search folder for mails that need follow up). I use Microsoft Exchange 2010 and therefore have Outlook Web Access (OWA) as webmail client. Although there is a favorites bar in OWA, I did not get it equal to my Outlook favorites. Luckily, I discovered that this is in fact possible (sorry, screenshots are in Dutch, the icons should look familiar though):
- In your mail profile (via Control Panel), uncheck the checkbox for ‘Use Cached Exchange mode’.
- Restart Outlook.
- Wait for some magical seconds (and maybe now create some favorites/search folders).
- Navigate to OWA (or refresh) and see the favorites and search folders to be synced.
- You can now recheck the checkbox from 1. again if you like…
Done! Good luck!
Again, off topic… But there is news to announce : I just passed my first aid exam – or EHBO axam in Dutch - (that’s one of many hobbies).
If you are going to be out of luck some way and I happen to be in the neighbourhood, pray for me really knowing everything by heart at that moment !
Unfortunately for all my blog readers stuck on IE6, I decided to leave IE6 without water and bread to help it die . In plain English: visitors to my blog using this crappy browser no longer get access to my blog, instead they are facing a nice-looking popup, asking them nicely if they already know to be outdated (and how to become alive again ).
The idea comes from http://code.google.com/p/ie6-upgrade-warning/. As a programmer, I decided to tweak the script a little to provide a better looking popup for my beloved IE6 visitors (statistics state that they are responsible for about 7% of my site visits, when I am writing this post – something to keep in mind when designing the get-alive-screen ).
What did I change?
- I added some scripting to disable select boxes below my popup (guess: a nasty IE bug keeps popping them over my popup, which troubles the IE6 view on my blog).
- I also changed the background to #ccc for a more relaxed view.
- For the same reason I also changed opacity around the popup to 75% (just enough to see how interesting the blog could be, should they not have IE6 anymore).
Have a look at the result:
Surfing the net, I stumbled upon a great post about so-called ‘happy talk’. Reading it, I laughed a lot. Jeff Atwood, I will read your blog more often ! The link: http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/001300.html. Enjoy reading !
