Subsequent to the installation process, you can launch the program and start working with it right away, provided that Microsoft Outlook is installed on your system.
The utility resorts to a tabbed interface, enabling you to quickly move between its various sections, namely ‘General’, ‘Startup Switches’, ‘Clear MRU’, ‘New Mail Alert’ and ‘Block Attachments’.
Easily configure Outlook’s advanced settings to your liking
For starters, OutlookTools will determine your version of Outlook, then allow you to access the ‘Account Settings’ or ‘Launch Event Viewer’, as well as ‘Run ScanPst’ or ‘Run ScanOst’. From the ‘Startup Switches’ section, you can hover over the available commands for more detailed descriptions, letting you activate the preferred item or copy it to clipboard.
The ‘Clear MRU tab’ helps you remove the ‘Most Recently Used’ objects from Outlook’s memory by selecting a certain ‘Profile’ from the drop down menu to operate the changes. The ‘New Mail Alert’ feature enables you to decide the display duration of the alert on your screen, as well as its transparency level.
Moreover, OutlookTools allows you to unblock the file extensions which are set as ‘Blocked Attachments’, letting you send those documents from Outlook unrestricted. Finally, you can press the ‘Save’ button to commit the modifications to your email client.
A handy Outlook customization instrument
To sum it up, OutlookTools is a useful and easy to understand application which aims to help you decide for yourself how Microsoft Outlook should function, by letting you access and alter its advanced settings with just a few clicks.
