An easier New Message shortcut

Four quick steps to a permanent, easy mail shortcut.

While Erasmo Medina's tip, Outlook New Message Shortcut, is certainly one way of creating an e-mail shortcut, I...

find this is much easier:

  1. Open Outlook.

  2. Create a new message as per normal (dont enter any info yet!).

  3. Save As file name and location of your own choosing (C:OutlookNewMsg.msg).

  4. Create a Shortcut to this file and place it in the desired location (QuickLaunch, StartMenu, Desktop, etc.)

That's it!
