Ken just released a new Outlook add-in that takes Outlook Reminders a giant step further. As Ken puts it, “Reminder Manager provides reminders from any email, calendar, contacts or tasks folder in a default or non-default mailbox or PST file and from Exchange public folders. It also enables sending reminders to any SMTP address, including pagers and cell phones. It has a System Tray icon that can flash on reminders and provides a unified reminders window for Outlook 2000. All reminders in any folder can be managed from one window.”

So you have finally figured out all the various ways you can set Microsoft Outlook to trigger alarms and reminders–calendar items, tasks, “flags” on messages and contacts. So now, how do you keep track of them? The answer is Ken Slovak’s Reminder Manager.

Ken Slovak of Slovak Technical Services, Inc. has authored a number of add-ins that tame numerous Outlook quirks. I previously recommended his Extended Reminders, which allow you to expand the flagging to any Outlook folder you desire. Now he has unveiled an expanded utility–Reminder Manager ($30 for a single user; sliding per seat scale for larger purchasers).

It contains Extended Reminder’s features, but adds a unified reminder window that gives you a list of all pending reminders–and when they are due to trigger. You can configure the kind of alarm you want–a pop-up window (like the Outlook default), a sound, a flash of the icon that Reminder Manager places in your system tray, or some combination thereof. You can also arrange for reminders to go to you by email or pager for when you are away from the office.

In the course of a day, I usually have several reminders that go off, which is confusing enough. But then when I start snoozing them, and set different snooze lengths, all organization is lost. Now I can call up the Reminder Manager dialog and see what’s coming up when. So I can find out the time that Project X, which I snoozed until I-am-not-sure-when, is due to trigger again.

Get rid of annoying security alerts in Microsoft Outlook! Advanced Security for Outlook allows you to determine the violator as well as specifying the status for this program for future occasions e.g. allow access, block access or run the default Outlook handler. Future specified actions will be executed automatically and Outlook Security will cease to annoy you with messages concerning attempts to access e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook.

The standard security system has two drawbacks: first, it does not allow users to determine the source of the threat, second, a lot of other applications developed before the security system appeared can be unbearably annoying due to the constant warning appearances. Since the security system is constantly updated, even a “fresh” program can get into the list of such applications. There is still another drawback resulting from the first two: the user must temporarily disable the security system thus allowing any other program to work without any security system restrictions.

This add-in for Outlook solves all of the above problems providing the information not only about the type of alert, but also about what program caused it and makes it possible for the user to specify what status this program should have: allow access, block access or run the default Outlook handler. Later on you can change or delete the decision taken.

It should be mentioned that there is a range of tasks (albeit rather limited) which an Outlook developer can implement only through the use of the object model and its “blocked” methods. In this case Advanced Security is one of indispensable outlook addins when using such an application.
