This morning I discovered that Outlook has been sending emails to… - Tactical Ninja

This morning I discovered that Outlook has been sending emails to spam, that are direct replies from stakeholders to things I've sent out asking for a response. In my efforts to fix this, I discovered that it has also been putting its own spam quarantine reports in spam.

Seriously, why does anyone even use Outlook any more? I mean, does anyone use it outside of the forced circumstances of the workplace?

Here is the first ever picture of me doing pole.  It's like the yeti, fuzzy and unclear whether it's actually me or not:

one armed handstand

It's also me not actually doing anything up the pole.  There is a pole in the picture though, so surely that counts?

Sure, the pic counts!

My job doesn't even use Outlook. We use Mozilla Thunderbird for email. And other than one friend who's a computer nerd of the highest degree, I don't think I even know anyone that doesn't use an email service like Gmail or Yahoo.

I wish my organisation were into Mozilla.

Outlook is pretty cool for scheduling meetings, notifying people of the meetings with timed popup remimnders, reserving rooms for meetings. Kind of lousy for email, though.

I wholeheartedly disagree! That's not *nothing* you are doing there. You are doing a one-handed handstand with the other hand on the pole. Me, I'm barely able to do a two-handed handstand with my yoga teacher grabbing my hips and taking half my weight. I am completely envious :)

That's true, but it's not really a pole move. It's actually not allowed in the competition I've entered for some reason.

One day I will have pretty photos of my doing pole that prove I can actually get off the ground.

You are balanced on one freaking hand while aligning your body upside down against the pole. I fail to see how this meets the criteria "not actually doing anything."

Well, yes. It's doing something, it's just not climbing up the pole. :)

Hehe, thanks! I wish I had a rockstar income, then I could quit work and just make costumes and dance all day!

It counts. I don't think I could hold that position.

It's a lot easier than it looks. The hand on the pole is taking quite a lot of weight.

We used to have Lotus Notes at work until last year - then were forced to switch to Outlook. Meh!!!

I have never used anything except Outlook. It's.. mostly ok but doesn't seem to play well with others.
