Bucharest, Romania (PRWEB) December 18, 2004
DS Development has released version 2.0 of their email productivity software, Bells & Whistles for Outlook, a time-saver Outlook add-in which removes the daily frustrations of Outlook users by automating repetitive tasks.
Bells & Whistles for Outlook helps users to quickly reply to emails by automatically inserting personalized email reply greetings, reply subject counters, text templates or even silent email notes. During a one-time configuration process, users can easily pre-define the reply message format or automatic BCC, Forward or Reply-To addresses that will be smoothly applied to every outgoing email. For Microsoft Outlook 2003 users, Bells & Whistles enables the missing Outlook feature designed for automatically inserting replied addresses to the Outlook Contacts book.
For those users dealing with a large amount of emails, Bells & Whistles introduces a new Outlook email concept: text notes attached to Inbox emails. Users can insert these notes to quickly assign comments, ideas or any text to a related email message, thus saving them from dealing with an external, unrelated notes tool. To further increase the Outlook productivity, Bells & Whistles allows users to add fully customizable tracking IDs, date & time stamps or a list of previously attached files on every email thread.
Using Bells & Whistles, Outlook power users can easily insert their most used text patterns into outgoing emails, such as contact information, service details, web page addresses, signatures or any other predefined text template. For their convenience, users can define quick keyboard shortcuts for every text template and they can apply custom font styles for their templates. Bells & Whistles assists users on generating quick mail merge sessions, by creating separate email messages based on each email address inserted into the BCC field of an outgoing email. For collaboration purposes, Users can also select to always send a BCC email to a specified address, for each message that is going to be sent.
To meet the demands of many Outlook users, Bells & Whistles for Outlook offers an easy way to allow or deny Outlook to open email file attachments. Moreover, for security reasons, users can also password protect the Outlook file extension blocking list.
Bells & Whistles works with any version of Microsoft Outlook, starting with Microsoft Office Outlook 2000. It installs itself as an Outlook add-in and it can be easily accessed from the Outlook Tools menu. For better Outlook management, Bells & Whistles for Outlook is delivered with an Outlook Add-in Utility designed for helping users to quickly enable or disable installed Outlook add-ins. Bells & Whistles for Outlook passed the Microsoft VeriTest verification tests for the Windows Client and Microsoft Office Platform Test.
New features include email notes, personalized reply greetings, customizable time & date stamps, text template shortcuts, Outlook attachment blocking options and more.
