"An extensive package of Outlook plug-ins"Microsoft Outlook is a powerful e-mail messaging and management system that we use everyday. Even a minute saved on a repetitive operation may save you a few hours every week. This is why Outlook plug-ins (programs intended to enhance certain operations or add new features) are so popular today.
As a heavy Outlook user myself, I tried and used many different plug-ins. Some of them have turned out to be very helpful. Recently, I came across a new multi-purpose Outlook plug-in package. After reading its description, I've suddenly realized that this solution can substitute for many of the
plug-ins that I used so far, some of which alone cost more than this all-in-one package.
So, let me introduce...Potolook. A magic pot full of useful modules. The most useable Potolook module, to me, is the message template editor. You can define dynamic templates. "Dynamic" (as opposed to static stationery or saved messages) means that you can use various macros to construct your
templates, including a recipient's and sender's info, dates, quotes, etc. Templates can be bound to specific folders or filtering rules. With this plug-in, you can create personalized responses in seconds.
Another good Potolook module is Highlighter. Remember what happens when corresponding with a customer support address. You send them a message, they reply and quote your original message then you reply and quote their previous reply plus your original message, etc. Finally you end up with an
unreadable jumble of multilevel quotations. Highlighter can help you by coloring and styling quotes of different level.
A Quick Viewer for Attachments is another handy tool of this package that allows you to quickly view attached images and documents without the need to first save them. With Attachments Compressor, you'll never need to zip your attachments manually before sending. Personalized Newsletter, Discussion Group utilities and other modules will make your life easier.
Requirements: Microsoft Office XP (2002) or high
What's new in this version: Potolook is a handy template manager and message filter plug-in for Microsift Outlook specially created for users who need more options and flexibility than Outlook offers on its own. The new version of the plug-in introduces the unique feature of message highlighting and attachments preview.
