Email clients, including pine, Webmail, and GoogleApps@UIC, allow you to use addressbooks for those you email most often. Unfortunately, they all use their own formats for these addressbooks, so you can not readily share that information between your email programs if you use more than one.

Similar to having an assistant help you manage your incoming paper mail, you can use Microsoft Outlook to allow another person, known as a delegate, to receive and respond to e-mail messages and meeting requests and responses on your behalf. You can also grant additional permissions that allow your delegate to read, create, or have more control over items in your Microsoft Exchange Server mailbox.

Android OS (2.3+,3.0+,4.0+) with ActiveSync Support is required to sync with ACCC Exchange accounts. You can sync email, contacts, and your calendar.

There are two ways to work with another person's Microsoft Outlook folders — folder sharing and Delegate Access.

Folder sharing enables another person to access one of your folders, perhaps while you are on vacation. However, it does not include permissions for one to act on behalf of the other. For example, a person who can access your folders cannot reply to email messages or respond to meeting requests for you.

A rule is an action that Microsoft Outlook performs automatically upon incoming or outgoing messages, based on conditions that you have specified. You can create a rule from a template, from a message, or using your own conditions. You can choose many conditions and actions by using the Rules Wizard. Rules fall into one of two categories — organization and notification. Rules don’t operate on messages that have been read, only on those that are unread.
