You send an email message, and then you start to have second thoughts. In Outlook 2013, you can recall or replace email that you’ve sent. Or you can resend an email to try to repair the damage. Here’s how it works.
Set up automatic replies, set a time range, use rules to manage your inbox while you’re out, and create different out-of-office messages for different groups, with or without a Microsoft Exchange account.
You can use attachments to include one or more files on any email you create. Open or save attachments with the program associated with the attachment file type.
Add holidays for the country that you want to appear on the Outlook calendar.
Create search folders to find messages across folders, based on their content or some other significant attribute (like who they’re from). Or delete search folders.
If you often send email to the same group of people, you can save time by using a distribution list, which is called a contact group in Outlook. Instead of typing out everyone’s address whenever you email the group, just type the name of the contact group. Here’s how to create one.
Send mail stuck in your Outbox, or delete it. The usual cause for stuck mail is a large attachment. Take this course to learn how to send or delete stuck mail.

In Outlook 2013, you can request delivery and read receipts when you send a message. Why?

Whatever the case, adding a request is easy to do.
