Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode for sites that don’t work correctly

Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode for sites that don’t work correctly in the updated version.  Let’s face it, there are a lot of sites that don’t work properly in new browsers when they come out.  For Internet Explorer there is a simple solution called compatibility mode.

For IE 11:

To add a site to the Compatibility View list

  1. Open the desktop, and then tap or click the Internet Explorer icon on the taskbar.
  2. Tap or click the Tools button Tools, and then tap or click Compatibility View settings.
  3. Under Add this website, enter the URL of the site you want to add to the list, and then tap or click Add.

For IE 11 on Windows 7:

To add a site to the Compatibility View list

  1. Open the desktop, and then tap or click the Internet Explorer icon on the taskbar.
  2. Tap or click the Tools button Tools, and then tap or click Compatibility View settings.
  3. Under Add this website, enter the URL of the site you want to add to the list, and then tap or click Add.

For IE 8, 9 and 10:

To turn on Compatibility View

  1. See if the Compatibility View button Compatibility View button appears in the Address bar. (If you don’t see the button, there’s no need to turn on Compatibility View.)
  2. Tap or click the Compatibility View button Compatibility View button to display the site in Compatibility View.

Windows 8:

This function is only available if you are running IE in desktop mode, not metro mode

Thanks to Microsoft for the details so I didn’t have to hunt down images of all those little icons.

Oops! I didn’t mean to delete that

So you h̶a̶v̶e̶  had an email, which suddenly seems more important than it did just a moment ago.  It’s been deleted now.  How can we get it back?

There are two levels of Oh no, it can’t be in the OWA.  In the first your message just went to the Deleted Items folder recently and recovering the message is pretty simple and straightforward.

If you go to the Deleted Items folder and then right click the message in the list of messages, you should have a choice near the bottom that says Move to Folder.  If you choose that you will get a list of your email folders to pick from.  Choose a folder and then click on Move

The second case is that you’ve emptied your Deleted Items folder since you deleted the email or it has been more than a week since you deleted it.  In this case it has been temporarily moved to a lower level of “deletedness” which for a short time (4 days) is still retrievable.

If you right click, the Deleted Items folder, you will see that one of the options reads Recover Deleted Items.  Choose this and it will show you a list of recently deleted items. Roughly the last four days worth of deleted items appear here.  If you select an item from this list and then click on the little icon at the top left that looks like a yellow email envelope with a curved arrow on top, it will ask you where you would like to move the email to recover it.

An initial password is automatically assigned to all new network and email ID’s.  The password for both is the same and the instructions for how the password is generated are below:

Forwarding Email based on content (or covering while you are gone)

Sometimes, we need to cover certain aspects of our roles when we are not here.  An out of office message often has basic information for what to do, but there is another step we can take to improve the process.  We can create a rule, so that certain emails are forwarded to the person who covers for us.  For example, emails for purchase request authorizations sent to Tom are to have ‘Prepurchase Authorization Request’ in the Subject line.  If you go to Options, See all Options on the rights of OWA and then on the left choose Organize E-Mail.

Then Choose New, Create a new rule for arriving messages:

Then under ‘When the message arrives, and’ Choose It includes the words in the subject if it has a consistent subject line or It was received from, if you need to forward email from a certain person.  Then if you chose the words in the subject option, you enter a word or words and click Add, then OK when you are done.   

under ‘Do the following’, choose what to do.  In this example, we are going to forward those emails to another person who handles them in our absence.  Choose Redirect the Message and then pick the recipient from the address book, click To:, and then OK.

It should look something like this:

Now just choose Save and you have a new rule.  🙂  You can turn this rule on and off by clicking on the check box next to it in the list of rules.

Mail Space

When my email box gets full I will no longer be able to send email.  So, how do I check to see how much space I’ve used in my mail account?  Easy…

Just point your mouse at your name in the left column when you are in the OWA and hover over it.  A box like the one below appears that shows how much space you’re using.

Accessing / Editing other people’s contact list for them

If you’ve been tasked with managing another person’s contact list and you’ve been given access rights to do so.  I recommend the following:

Open a new tab in your browser and cut and paste this link.

https://owa.unmc.edu/owa/1111111@unmc.edu/?cmd=contents&fpath=contacts

Change the 11111111 to the person’s email address (Example: wgoodrich) Bookmark the site once you’re there.

What you see in the window is their contacts.

Just an FYI – if you paste the same address (with the email ID) and change the word contacts to inbox or calendar, you see those items also if you have permissions.
