Disabling Auto-Archive in Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook 2007 We always recommend that you disable the Auto Archive option in Outlook. The Auto Archive option will remove any email that is older than 6 months from your mailbox and place it into a file on your local hard drive as a .PST file. We don’t recommend this because the email that you archive will be taken off of the mail server and onto your workstation. It will no longer be backed up and if your workstation were to die, that archive has a good chance of dying with it. To disable this feature do the...

Are you regularly soliciting feedback? Are you...

How Tech-Savvy is Your Firm Staff?

According to the American Bar Association in an article published by the Legal Solutions Blog, lawyers are less tech-savvy than other professionals. While lawyers have embraced smart phones and tablets, they are being used for more administrative tasks than they are being used to really practice law. When it comes to smartphones, close to 10% of lawyers are still not using them. The smartphone of choice for the other 90% is the iPhone. Those smartphones are mostly being used to access the internet and send email. Only 4% of lawyers are using...
