Preparing for multiple users
Working at home is different from working in an office (but you knew
that). Sure, working in your bunny slippers and bathrobe is pretty
unusual in big companies, but telecommuters have to do without the huge
network, multiple phone lines, and standing army of computer gurus that
many office workers take for granted. That’s why Outlook works a bit
differently for the home user than it does for the corporate user. If you work
from home, here’s your chapter: I show you how to get the most from those
differences. (If you use Outlook in a large corporation, you may want to skip
to Chapter 14, which focuses on using Outlook in big business.)
Investigating an ISP
If you use a computer at home, you probably send and receive e-mail through
an outside service. It might be your cable company, your phone company, or
a service that your computer dials into over the telephone. The general term
for the kind of outfit that provides this service is Internet service provider or
ISP. ISPs do more than exchange e-mail messages for you. An ISP also provides
the Internet connection that enables your browser to access and display
pages from the World Wide Web and enables you to do nearly anything that
you can do on the Internet.
