How to access multiple mailboxes from one account in MS Exchange Server 2010 - video tutorial
There are cases when e.g. an IT administrator wants to have full access and view into selected mailboxes on Exchange server, directly from his own email account in Outlook or Outlook Web Access. This proves useful when for example administrator wants to confirm the message is delivered to all of mailboxes correctly. The video below explains how to grant full access rights to the selected mailbox for the specific user (John in this case). The video also shows how these mailboxes are visible in the left pane of MS Outlook right after the program is launched, while in OWA the user needs to switch between them manually.

Embedded vs hosted images in email signatures
To add imagery to an HTML email signature, you have two options available to you. You can either add a logo/image by embedding it directly into the signature or hosting it externally and linking to it.

The vast majority of email clients display logos/images in an email signature without any major issues, so there might not appear to be much difference between using the two formats. However, there are benefits to choosing one method over the other.
Embedded images

If you want a logo/imagery to appear without having to click a ‘Download Images’ button, we recommend embedding it all within the email signature. This is when an image is attached to an email and referenced using a Content-ID (HTML image tags).

Choose how to present images in email signatures
A standard Content-ID will look like this:

<img src="cid:myimagecid" />

Open in new window


When an email client refers to these images, they will all be displayed automatically. This is because they are referenced in the source of the message.

However, embedded images will slightly increase the size of your emails and there is a slight risk that they will appear as separate attachments in some email clients. There are also known issues with images being stripped out of emails and increasing in size on iOS devices e.g. iPhone and iPad.

Hosted/linked images

If you don't want to run the risk of email signature imagery appearing as attachments, we recommend saving and hosting your logo/images on a web server. They will then…

How to tell Microsoft Office that a word is NOT spelled correctly
This Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial shows how to tell Microsoft Office that a word is NOT spelled correctly. Microsoft Office has a built-in, main dictionary that is shared by Office apps, including Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word. When an Office module, such as MS Word, gives us the red squiggly underline signifying a misspelled word, yet it really is spelled correctly (such as a proper noun), we're all familiar with how to add it to the custom dictionary, that is, simply right-click the word and select Add to Dictionary. But suppose we type in a word that does not get the red squiggly underline, that is, Word thinks it is spelled correctly, yet we do not like that spelling, and we want Word (and other Office apps) to flag it as a misspelling. This video explains a Microsoft supported technique for achieving that.

1. Locate the ExcludeDictionary file


Exit all Office apps.

Using Windows/File Explorer (or whatever file manager you prefer), navigate to this file:

c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof\ExcludeDictionaryEN0409.lex

Of course, <username> is your user name (in my video, it is Joe). The exact name of the file will vary depending on your language and Office version, but it will begin with ExcludeDictionary and have a LEX file extension.

Step1

2. Open the ExcludeDictionary file


Using Notepad (or whatever plain text editor you prefer), open the ExcludeDictionary file, which will be empty the first time you open it. If you do a File>Open, make sure that All Files is selected, since it is a LEX

Thank you for the detail and writing it in an understandable way.

Based on your information, I played around with the various English files and my locale and language settings and saw it work as you suggested. I also found that it is safe to simply delete the files, and let Office recreate the appropriate one when it performs a spell check.

You're welcome, Bill. I'm glad to hear that it works for you. And thanks to you for determining that it is safe to delete the LEX file(s) — that Office will re-create the appropriate one when it performs a spell check. I hadn't tried that — very good to know! Regards, Joe

How to install the Office 2016 desktop applications that come with the free trial of Office 365 Home
In a previous video Micro Tutorial here at Experts Exchange, I explained how to get a free, one-month trial of Office 365, which provides the desktop versions of Office 2016. For Windows, this includes Access 2016, Excel 2016, OneNote 2016, Outlook 2016, PowerPoint 2016, Publisher 2016, and Word 2016, as well as Microsoft OneDrive. The previous tutorial ended at the point of downloading the installer for the Office 2016 desktop modules for Windows. This new tutorial goes through the installation process for those applications.

1. Run the downloaded installer


Using Windows/File Explorer (or whatever file manager you prefer), locate the downloaded installer for the Office 2016 apps that are included as part of the Office 365 Home subscription. The name may vary depending on your operating system, but it will look something like this:

Setup.<lots of other characters here>.exe

Run it (usually, via a double-click, but that depends on your file manager and settings) and then click the "Run" button on the "Security Warning" dialog.

step1

2. Accept the User Account Control dialog


Depending on your User Account Control (UAC) settings, you may or may not get the UAC dialog. If you do, click the "Yes" button.

step2

3. Wait until all Office 2016 apps are installed


Although it says, "We'll be done in just a moment", grab a cup of coffee.

step3

4. Check for the Office Tools shortcuts


Check to make sure that the installer created a "Microsoft Office 2016 Tools" program group, with two shortcuts in it.

step4

5. Check for the Office shortcuts


Check to make sure that the installer created shortcuts for all of the Office 2016 apps. It does not

How to get a free trial of Office 365 with the Office 2016 desktop applications
Office 365 is currently available in five editions. Three of them are for business use: Office 365 Business Essentials, Office 365 Business, and Office 365 Business Premium. Two of them are for home/personal use: Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal. However, only one of them offers a free trial — Office 365 Home. This Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial explains how to go through the process of obtaining the free, one-month trial for Office 365 Home, which includes the desktop versions of Office 2016. For Windows, this includes Access 2016, Excel 2016, OneNote 2016, Outlook 2016, PowerPoint 2016, Publisher 2016, and Word 2016, as well as Microsoft OneDrive. In a subsequent EE video Micro Tutorial, I show how to install the downloaded desktop versions of those Office 2016 modules in a Windows 7 system.

1. Visit the website for Office 365 Home


Visit the site with the only Office 365 edition that currently offers a free trial:
https://products.office.com/en-us/compare-microsoft-office-products

Step1

Step2aClick the "Try 1-month free" button.

Step2b

3. Sign into your Microsoft account

Step3

4. Go through the payment process

Get people started with the process of using Access VBA to control Outlook using automation, Microsoft Access can control other applications. An example is the ability to programmatically talk to Microsoft Outlook. Using automation, an Access application can launch Outlook, and create email messages, calendar items, and contacts.

1. Create a reference to the Outlook application object.

2. Write code that launches Outlook, and creates an email message, a calendar item, and a contact.

3. Explain that other commands can be used to programmatically control Outlook.
