the correct way to create a task from an email is to reply to the email with the message "please open a ticket for this" . then a ticket will automatically be generated if the issue is important enough.

Well for one thing I'm not quite crazy enough to use a ticket system for my personal email, not would responding to myself be likely to get a ticket opened

I like that you can apparently now use Teams for personal use like some sort of skype replacement, as if that is something anyone in their right mind would want to do.

carry on then

i think outlook may be so bad these days that notes, which hasnt changed in 20 years, may now be a better for email.

exchange is infinitely better than domino tho, that ones still not even close.

if you think windows outlook is bad the mac client is even worse, like it constantly pops up reminders for old meetings or fails silently it's great

the windows client does the reminders for old meetings too. thats almost certainly the favorite feature of some boomer product owner at microsoft who thinks its critical that you know you missed a meeting while you were out last week.

no this will, if a meeting in a series is canceled, pop up a reminder for last week's occurrence at the time this week's would have happened

they cant get images and text to work reliably in teams, a piece of software that handles text and images almost exclusively. i dont think the office client team cares about anything

They should just stuff the old meeting notifications in the daily briefing/myanalytics emails and then burn them

yesterday i was locked out of my email for a little while because a server-side log file filled up, which causes a constant error dialog in the client when trying to do anything. they had to do manual maintenance on the server to clear it out.

I just use the web-browser instead of the client when I need to search. The outlook client search is a grab bag. Sometimes it works perfectly, but maybe it will crash instead. Exciting!
