Bells & Whistles for Outlook Removes the Daily Frustrations of Outlook Users

Bucharest, Romania DS DEVELOPMENT has released version 3.0 of their Outlook email productivity software, Bells & Whistles for Outlook, a time-saver Outlook add-in which removes the daily frustrations of Outlook users by powering up Outlook with extras that let you do more with common tasks.

Bells & Whistles for Outlook helps users to quickly reply to emails by automatically inserting personalized email reply greetings, email templates, signatures or even side email notes. During a one-time configuration process, users can easily pre-define the reply message format or specify email addresses for the automatic CC, BCC, Forward or Reply-To features that will be smoothly applied to every outgoing email. For Microsoft Outlook 2003 users, Bells & Whistles enables the missing Outlook feature designed for automatically inserting replied addresses to the Outlook Contacts book.

For those users dealing with a large amount of emails, Bells & Whistles introduces a new Outlook email concept: text notes attached to Inbox emails, visible among the other Outlook email columns displayed in the mailbox folder. Users can insert these notes to quickly assign comments, ideas or reminders to a related email message, thus saving them from using an external, unrelated notes tool. To further increase the Outlook productivity, Bells & Whistles allows users to add fully customizable tracking IDs, date & time stamps or a list of previously attached files on every email thread.

Using Bells & Whistles, Outlook power users can easily insert their most used email message patterns into outgoing emails, such as contact information, images, web page addresses, signatures or any other predefined text or HTML template. For their convenience, users can define quick keyboard shortcuts for every text template and they can apply custom font styles for their templates. Version 3 of Bells & Whistles for Outlook is installed with over 30 HTML email templates, ready to be used for sending holiday or anniversary emails.

Other Bells & Whistles features include the ability to automatically archive file attachments when sending emails, insert original attachments into Outlook replies or easily resend an already sent email without having to manually retype or copy the email fields, as one would normally do when using Microsoft Outlook.

To meet the demands of many Outlook users, Bells & Whistles for Outlook offers an easy way to allow or deny Outlook to open email file attachments. Moreover, for security reasons, users can also password protect the Outlook unsafe file extension blocking list.

Bells & Whistles works with any version of Microsoft Outlook, starting with Microsoft Office Outlook 2000. It installs itself as an Outlook add-in and it can be easily accessed from the Outlook Tools menu. For better Outlook management, Bells & Whistles for Outlook is delivered with an Outlook Add-in Utility designed for helping users to quickly enable or disable installed Outlook add-ins. Bells & Whistles for Outlook passed the Microsoft VeriTest verification tests for the Windows Client and Microsoft Office Platform Test.

New features include the ability to use the Bells & Whistles options based on email rules and profiles, advanced automatic reply greetings, the attachment archiving feature, the email resend function for already sent messages, full HTML support for email templates, the email signatures option, more than 30 predefined email templates, a live update mechanism and many more. There are more than 15 new features available on Bells & Whistles v3.
