    Bells & Whistles for Outlook

    Better Outlook email management by using the Outlook add-in to attach text notes to Outlook Inbox messages

    Outlook email notes

    Bells & Whistles for Outlook introduces a new Outlook email concept: email notes attached to Inbox email messages.

    The goal of this feature is to allow you to quickly record a text (comments, ideas, to-do, etc) within Outlook, while keeping it related to a certain email subject.

    By default, once installed Bells & Whistles will enable this feature. You can manually enable/disable it, by going to the Alerts&Notes tab and marking the checkbox called "Enable email notes". You can also choose if the email notes sign is going to be displayed by Outlook, as a message property column:

    When this function is enabled, you will see a new button attached to the Bells & Whistles toolbar menu of Outlook. In order to insert an Email Note, simply select the desired email message and click on the "Notes" button from the toolbar. A new window will popup, so you can type the desired note:

    When you write your text, you can also attach a date stamp on it in order to help you remember when you actually added the note to that email message. Then, just click on the "OK" button and Outlook will save the note, attached to the selected email message.

    To quickly sort Inbox email messages based on their Notes, Bells & Whistles inserts a new message column view, called Notes:


    When a note is attached to an email, you will see a checkbox added to the Notes column of that email message. You can also configure Bells & Whistles to display the actual note text in the column, instead of the notes icon:

    To view the note later, you have four methods:
  • if you configured Bells & Whistles to display the note text as a column, you can preview the note in your mailbox folder by expanding the Notes column;
  • if you double click on the related email message (like you normally open it for reading), the notes window will popup on top of the message window, allowing you to view or edit the attached Outlook notes;
  • if you right click on the email message and click on Notes, the Notes window will be displayed by Outlook;
  • if you select the related Outlook message, then click on the Notes button/icon displayed on the Bells & Whistles toolbar, the notes window will be displayed.

    You can also copy or move Outlook notes from one computer to another, by using the Export & Import function of Bells & Whistles for Outlook.
