Copy Email Into a Folder

Did you know that in Outlook you can put a copy of an email into a folder for reference purposes, while still retaining the original in its original location?

This can be helpful if you are wanting to make sure you have copies of emails in particular folders, but still want the original in your Inbox to reply to; or perhaps when using a shared mailbox.

To do this, hold down the Control key while you drag selected email(s) into a folder. This will copy the email(s) rather than moving it/them.

TIP: just make sure you keep holding down the Ctrl key until after you have dropped the email into the folder!

How to Access Your Computer from Off-Campus

IN A NUTSHELL, THERE ARE 2 THINGS YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Register for Remote Access (click link)
  2. Connect to UC services from off-campus (click link)

If you experience issues with remote access please Log an assyst request and ITS will be able to assist.

To use IT services or resources from off-campus – for example at home or a hotel – you need to use something called ‘Remote Access‘. The term ‘Remote Access’ in the UC context means you are authorised to access IT services or resources when away from the campus.

You will also encounter the term ‘Remote Desktop‘.  In the UC context, this means connecting to a computer or server that is located on-campus.

Step 1: is to Register for Remote Access (click link)

It is recommended that all staff register for remote access, even if you do not expect or intend to use the service, as this will reduce effort needed to get set up should your circumstances change in the future.

Step 2: is to Connect to UC services from off-campus (click link)
using your Personal computer (Windows or a Mac) or UC provided Windows laptop or a UC provided Mac.
