Creating Shortcuts Instead Of Copying Messages In Outlook
Posted on 2004-10-21
I am assuming that when I copy an email message (with attachments) in Outlook (2000 SP-3) that is in one folder to another, a physical copy is creeted which takes up lots of space.
I'm looking for facility (in the form of a shortcut, pointer or similar) which allows me to create a reference in one folder to another single instance of the original email message and attachments which is found in another folder without actually duplicating the message.
In summary I want to file my messages into appropriate project folders, but I also want folders for each of my contacts containing shortcuts/links that point to the project folders rather than have two copies of the same mail filed under 'project' and 'contact'.
Can this be done or is this pushing the envelope or have I just designed the next version of Outlook?
