Sending Files and Photos
Forwarding a message to a third party without the permission of the
original author is a breach of etiquette and very bad manners. I could
tell you a story about an e-mail message of mine that an unwitting editor
forwarded to a cantankerous publisher, but I’m saving that story for the
soap opera edition of this topic.
To add a sender’s name to the Contacts folder, right-click the name in the
Message window and choose Add to Outlook Contacts.
Sending Files and Photos
Yes, it can be done. You can send files and photos along with your e-mail
messages. As long as you know where the file or photo is stored on your
computer, you can send it lickety-split.

Auto-replying to messages
An auto-reply (automatic reply) is a message
sent automatically to everyone who sends you
a message. An auto-reply goes something like
this: “I’m on vacation till Tuesday and can’t
reply to your message. But as soon as I return,
I’ll reply to you.” Use auto-replies to inform
people that you aren’t neglecting them, you
just can’t reply because you’re in meetings, on
vacation, or otherwise occupied.
Only people who run Outlook through a
Microsoft Exchange server can send

to a network can auto-reply to messages.
