Find Important Emails with Ease using Microsoft Outlook Search Post by: Lynne Rooney June 3, 2014 | 1:49 PM

Microsoft Outlook is an application included in the Microsoft Office Suite. While it’s most commonly used to access different email accounts e.g., personal and business, it also has other features, including calendar, contacts, and tasks. It also comes with a search folder that lets you instantly find messages that fall under certain criteria.

Outlook is one of the most popular email platforms allowing you to read emails from almost any account. The inbox is where the majority of your interaction with Outlook is, but the problem is that many users receive so many emails that it can be overwhelmed quickly. This makes it more difficult to find important emails, or separate the spam/less important emails.

One way to deal with this is by creating a customized search folder for important emails. This makes searching for vital messages easier as they are saved in a separate folder.

Internet Explorer Zero-Day Security Flaw Post by: Lynne Rooney May 16, 2014 | 3:22 PM

For many businesses, a web browser is one of the most important tools you use on a daily basis. Being in marketing, I use it every day because of the number of web based tools I use. Most Windows users use Internet Explorer (IE) since it’s automatically installed on all Windows computers. If you are using this browser you need to be aware of a recent security flaw.

What is it?

A zero-day flaw is a security vulnerability that is taken advantage of by hackers on the day it is discovered. In other words, there are zero days between the discovery of the vulnerability and people taking advantage of it.

The way most software programs work is if a user finds a security flaw, they will usually inform the developer who will then develop a fix and release it in a patch that users download. The problem is, sometimes it is a hacker who discovers this vulnerability. Instead of reporting it, they start to take advantage of the flaw, using it to attack other users before the developer becomes aware of it and has a chance to fix it.
