I'm wanting to get my habitual email checking habit under control and was wondering if there was a way to configure Outlook 2007 (rules, alerts, send/receive settings, etc.) to help me. I have some constraints:
- I still want see my calendar and get reminders so that I don't miss a meeting
- I still want to process meeting requests
– I'm OK if they get auto-accepted if I'm free to avoid me having constantly look
- Hide/don't download emails/phone messages until certain times of day. e.g. I'll check emails at 8:30am and 1pm, but that's it.
The send/receive settings allow me to specify how often to check, but not specific times of day and the rules give me some flexibility (auto accept appointments), but I'm struggling to get exactly what I'm after.
