favourite outlook 2007 feature

I just started using the new Outlook 2007 "Quick Parts" feature and I'm addicted. it's like autocorrect on steroids.

Quick Parts allow you to select anything in an e-mail and save it for later re-use. this is very handy when you are in a position where you frequently need to answer questions.

in this example, I am responding to a question about the log files for the Metalogix SharePoint migration solution called SharePoint Site Migration Manager. my Quick Part contains a text explanation, a screenshot and hyperlinks. soooooo nice.

- selecting a Quick Part to insert into the body of an e-mail. click for better view.

one caveat: when I opened my mailbox on a machine running Outlook 2003, my quick parts were lost.
