20 ways to detect a bulk mail message

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

Before the days of OutLinker, I optimized my inbox by diverting “bulk mail” to a separate OutLook folder for reading “in bulk” at a later time rather than having them provide mid-day distraction or swelling an otherwise full inbox. In this case I’m referring to legitimate bulk mail from vendors I’m largely interested in hearing […]

How long is a typical email message?

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

Awhile back an OutLinker user ran into trouble transferring a large Microsoft OutLook message into MindManager via GyroQ. We determined the shear size of the transfer was the problem. We don’t know precisely how big is too big, but in order to minimize the risk of that happening, OutLinker now has an upper limit on […]

OutLinker Setup Gets Easier and New Attachment Feature

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

Outlinker has evolved quite a bit as I’ve gotten more familiar with the capabilities of VBA in Microsoft OutLook and gained the advantages that the installation program provides in making forms easier to deliver.

Six Components of a GTD Review

I’m hoping it is because we are all successfully focusing on Getting Things Done rather than tinkering with our systems and surfing blogs. After three years of […]

OutLinker 2.01

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

The 31Mar08 version of OutLinker I posted about yesterday had a last minute bug introduced. See comments on previous post for instructions to fixing your queue if needed. The latest version (1Apr08) is a roll-back that should work better. My apologies.

OutLinker 2.0

Monday, March 31st, 2008

It is actually more like version 122, but “2.0” sounds better. It has been about four months since my last post on OutLinker and I wanted to let folks know that several improvements and bug fixes have trickled onto the wiki since then. The macro now defaults to routing transfers to MindManager through GyroQ, which […]

In a message on the GTD-MindManager Yahoo group, Juan asked about ways of getting tasks into MindManager from his new PDA. I thought it might be useful to cross-post a reply here for posterity: Here are four options for getting items into your maps from a mobile device. Use to mail yourself task from […]
