Refresh yourself!
Everyone likes refreshment now and then;
Outlook.com is no different. I’m not
suggesting that you pour a couple of brewskis into
your Inbox — you’d rather chug ’em yourself
anyway. Because you’re viewing Outlook.com
through a browser, you might need to tell your
browser to refresh the display now and then.
The regular version of Outlook that you use on
your desktop always shows you everything
it stores, but the web version sometimes falls
behind. Press F5 or right-click the screen and
choose Refresh from the shortcut menu. After
that, feel free to pop a cold one.
To respond to a meeting request, follow these steps:
1. Click the Mail icon in the Ribbon.
Your list of messages appears.
2. Click the message that includes a meeting request.
You see a special toolbar with the Accept, Tentative, Decline, and
Calendar buttons. Meeting requests appear in your Inbox (as with any
other e-mail message), but a tiny calendar icon is just to the left of the
e-mail’s subject line.
3. Click Accept, Tentative, Decline, or Calendar.
The Compose E-Mail dialog box opens. You can add a comment to your
reply.
4. Click Send.
Your response is sent to the meeting organizer.
When you accept a meeting request, the meeting is automatically added to
your calendar, and the meeting organizer’s calendar reflects the fact that
you’ve agreed to attend the meeting. (To find out more about sending and
responding to meeting requests, see Chapter 14.)
Exploring Your Options
You can adjust a limited number of options through Outlook.com. To see
what options are available, click Options in the upper right-hand corner of
the Calendar screen, or the gear icon in the Ribbon. You may want to change
the e-mail notification options or the way dates are displayed. For the most
part, however, you won’t miss much if you leave the options alone.
