Watch Outlook Commander in action:
Simple and powerful features
Outlook Commander is easy-to-use, reliable, designed to solve every day problems.
How often do you read an email but don't have time to Reply on the spot? And later this email scrolls out of sight. Frustrating, right? We have all been there.
Outlook Commander gives you an easy way to handle this. Click the "Reply Later" button to move this email to a dedicated ‘Reply Later’ folder. This makes things easy and transparent, and lets you walk through your Inbox while keeping important emails in sight in this 'Reply Later' folder, which you can return to as soon as you have some time available.
Unwanted Newsletters are relentless. They seem to come from everywhere, unsolicited, in increasing numbers. You can hunt for that 'unsubscribe' link in these messages, but where is this $#%@! link?!
Outlook Commander makes this clean-up task a lot simpler: just select the unwanted emails, and click the "Unsubscribe" button, and see how you (finally) get unsubscribed effortlessly, with just this click.
EMOTICONS / EMOJIS
You write your email and sometimes you wish you could color your words with the right emotion. You can insert a Windows 10 Emoji (Win + .), but why are they so ugly?! Nah.
That's where Outlook Commander comes to the rescue. You can invoke and insert its beautiful "Emoticons/Emojis" in any of your emails or replies, underline your expressed emotion, and do all of this with grace and style.
Would you like an efficient way to stay organized and keep all your "Meeting Notes" with their meeting invite? Now you can.
While in your meeting, type your notes in "Meeting Notes", and any time later, you can go back to review them, organize them, create action items and even share these notes as meeting minutes. Voila!
Communications and call for action may start in emails, but they often are followed by meetings, calls and video conferences. Where do you put all these follow-up notes? Try "Email Notes".
With "Email Notes", you can add personal, private “notes to self” to any email. This way you can keep everything related to the communication in a single place, and easily get back to it.
REPLY WITH ATTACHMENTS
Ever tried to Reply to an email wanting to keep the attachments in the reply, so you can for example add recipients who were forgotten? Nop, Outlook doesn't let you do this.
But now you can. Outlook Commander adds this feature to your finger tip, and it works exactly as you would expect. Hit "Reply With Attachments" and see the original email's files attached in your reply. Just like you wanted.
You receive an email asking for your availability for a 2 hour meeting over the next few days. Your immediate thought? "Just great, now I have to spend countless minutes combing through my Calendar to find a series of open time slots... grr".
That scenario happens to all of us. Fortunately, with Outlook Commander you can insert your "Meeting Availability" with just a few clicks. Pick the meeting length, suggested dates, and see how your availability is inserted in your reply, like magic. You can edit at will, it's pretty much effortless.
When you delete an email or calendar event, the item doesn't really get deleted. Everything gets collected in the Deleted Items folder, and you are left having to eventually clean up this trash manually.
That is until now. Outlook Commander let's you define whether an item hitting the Deleted Items folder should be actually automatically deleted. You may want to automate the deletion of just emails, or just meetings/appointments, or both. Or neither. It is your choice!
