    Read receipts are an interesting feature in mail programs, but it is a feature that is not standardized. Many popular email clients block them, and a lot of the email programs that exist for Mac OS X don’t include them at all, or are complicated to implement. But they do have their uses, so some people still choose to include them with messages that they send from their computer. However, that does not mean that you need to comply with their request. A read receipt is just that – a request from the sender to notify them when you have opened their message. If you are becoming annoyed with receiving these read receipts in Outlook 2013 and no longer want to send read receipts or even be notified that they have been requested, you can turn off read receipts in Outlook 2013.

    So you want to quickly send that email and you too lazy to click on the send button in Outlook for Mac 2011.

    Like me who doesn’t want to remove my hands from the keyboard and just wants to click send via a keyboard shortcut. Coming from Windows where Alt + S does that made me wonder – what’s the Mac equivalent so to quickly send that mail press Command and Enter (COMMAND + RETURN) .

    For a full list of shortcuts please review the reference below – my favourite list is:

    Create a new message COMMAND + N
    Send the open message COMMAND + RETURN
    Save an item COMMAND + S
    Print an item COMMAND + P
    Undo the last action COMMAND + Z
    Redo the last action COMMAND + Y
    Hide Outlook COMMAND + H
    Quit Outlook COMMAND + Q

    Working in Saudi, we need to adapt to using the Saudi keyboard and numerals. When installing MS Office 2010 by default (after installing the Arabic Keyboard in Windows) – Arabic text is displayed correctly, however Arabic numerals are typed in the base language i.e. English. To fix …

    In Word 2010:

    – Go to File > Options > Advanced.

    – Scroll down to the Show document content section – you will find the Numeral option. Set it to Context.


    – and you done …

    Happy typing …
