MS Outlook for beginners
Welcome to the digital age. Gone are the days when we used to print all of our business communication pieces on paper, place them in an envelope and either dump them in the out-tray for internal distribution or for external posting, send them through the postal system. Today, just about every piece of communication is sent via email, posted to a shared online platform or sent out via social media networks.
