I own my own business. After a screen crack on a lap top, I bought a new laptop. I also bought Office 2013, with Outlook.
How can I get a single inbox? It wants to set up multiple inboxes and I do not want to have to check different inboxes. I had a single inbox on my Outlook 2010. Every link I see on Google has ridiculous levels of power user requirements that I have neither the time nor the ability to do. Can anyone help?

How do introverts handle communication in environments where the receivers do not value email or consider it worth replying to?
I find tracking people down to ask questions and make requests face-to-face or over the phone very disruptive to my work pattern (intense concentration for long periods of time) and very inefficient. I would much prefer to use email since I would consider this far less disruptive to both my workload and the recipient's workload. They can answer at their leisure, but I still expect an eventual answer if I ask a direct question (even if it's "I'm too busy to answer at the minute"). [more inside]

I have a friend who has become totally reliant on an e-mail account, which was provided by an internet service provider which she has just left to go to a new ISP. She uses Outlook 2003 as her e-mail client program. Unfortunately, she is now finding that after moving to this new ISP that although she can receive e-mails absolutely fine, she cannot send e-mails.

Is there a way, in say, thunderbird to specify and e-mail address as a privileged email address? I would like it so that if a flagged address is chosen the program asks you one last time before you send the e-mail if you are sure you want to send it to the address listed. Sometimes I'm a little quick on the draw with e-mail addresses.
Basically if I send something to a friend that is inappropriate for say my mom I want my program to let me know that I chose my mom's address instead before it goes out.

Long story short, I lost my contacts from an old e-mail but I have their e-mail/details in the body
of invoices that I forwarded to my current address. I've been copying thousands of e-mail out out by hand, but am realizing I'll have carpal tunnel before it's done. Is there a way to do this short of hiring someone to write a script?
Tried forwarding e-mail to Thunderbird, but the extension that looked like it might do this doesn't search the body of e-mail https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/email-address-crawler/
Also, looking into autohotkey, but am under time constraints. Grateful for any pointers here!

I just got an iPhone 4. On it, I can take video and then e-mail it, and the video will be embedded in the e-mail. Is there a simple
way to do this from my MacBook as well--take video from iPhoto and send it so that it's a nice, small, reasonably high quality video embedded in an e-mail? Everything I've been able to find online seems so complicated. I just want to click a button and have it go.

You all have met some of those non-responsive people in your life. You engage in a rather personal and/or meaningful cyber-conversation and ask open-ended, non-intrusive questions. After a few exchanges, bam, suddenly, no reply, no apology, no nothing. [more inside]

There are a lot of e-blast and mailing list software options for PC, but if you have a Mac and want to send out e-mails to a lot of people in an organized way, is there any great way to go? I REALLY can't afford to use Constant Contact right now, my mailing list is large and it would cost a *bunch*.

What are your most
useful or interesting e-mail subscriptions, newsletters or notifications? I switched gears recently to get more things delivered to my inbox (as opposed to seeking them via RSS or visiting their site), and I've enjoyed the added convenience, and the convenience of centralization around my inbox. I'd like to improve the convenience even further by learning what inbox messages or services you've found most useful. [more inside]

How do I sync two IMAP folders? I currently use Gmail for all my e-mail (personal & work). I currently have about 4,000+ messages archived in Gmail and I'll continue to add 300-500 per month.
I also have a IMAP account with my webhost and I was wondering if there was any type of application or script that would connect to the Gmail IMAP servers and backup/sync all of my mail so I know that in addition to being in Gmail's cloud....it is also on my IMAP server in case something happens.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird for e-mail but, beginning about a week ago, although people received and continue to receive e-mails from me that are ok, when I open the same e-mails in my "send" file to review them, they're either blank or a jumble of code, often, related to e-mails other than what I just opened. Help!

Web Page E-mail Links That Don't Work: Bug or Feature?
Greetings Mefi-World! Here on my Mac OS X Panther PowerBook, nothing happens when I click on e-mail links on any web page in Safari and Firefox. Is this a feature I need to turn on, or is this intentional; an anti-spam thing? If it's the former, what do I change to make clicking on these links open a new e-mail (in Apple Mail)?
All suggestions appreciated greatly.
