Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Please provide more details. Attaching files and notes can be done on any email individually, is this something you want to do for all emails and can it be acheived with a signature? What version of Outlook are you using? What email system are you using please? Thanks.

    Dear DAV11 I think you are asking about the Signature system, you want to add something in End of the E-Mail, so use the Signature in the Outlook option, if you want to attach something different then please give detail Regard's Hammad Ali Uppal

    In Outlook 2007, with the message open, click on Other Actions found in the Message tab, then select edit. Click on the insert tab and select attachment, and choose your file to attach to the message. Close the message or choose to move it to an appropriate folder. With the latter, you will not be prompted to save changes. If you wish to just add text to the message--if it is short you can just type it on eh subject line after the subject (I note the date that I paid a bill this way, along with method of payment) or choose to edit the message as above and type in your text in the appropriate place. Other versions of Outlook will be similar, though the location of edit and attachment will vary.

    If you just want to link a document (file) or attach Notes to an e-mail – it is fairly simple. I am not sure if this is what you are planning. Linking a document /Notes/file is an effective way to get maximum mileage of e-mails. Suppose you got an e-mail for a request for proposal (RFP) or request to prepare cost estimation for a project. If you remember similar activities in the past then you can simply tie them together now for later reference. I am using Entourage (Office 2008 for Mac) on a Mac laptop. I believe Office 2007 (Outlook) will have similar steps. Open the message that you want to attach/link Notes. Tools >Link to New (or existing)> select from the dropdown list (Message, Calendar, event, Tasks, Notes, Contacts, Files, etc). You can link any one or all of these items. Hope this helps & keep us posted which way you got it working.

    Thankyou for the replies. The perfect solution I found for me is STICKIES. http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/ I can 'attach' a post-it-note to any email / doc / webpage etc. The post-it-note will appear when the doc is visible and disappear when the doc is not visible. I can also set alarms on the post-it-note indicating that action needs to be taken re the doc. I also persuaded the author to mod the app so that the alarms show up even when the parent program for the doc was not even running. This solution does not mod the original doc - so the original email / doc etc can be passed onto others without fear of passing on my thoughts / ramblings. This has addressed all my needs.

    PageRank is a probability distribution used to represent the likelihood that a person randomly clicking on links will arrive at any particular page. PageRank can be calculated for collections of documents of any size. It is assumed in several research papers that the distribution is evenly divided among all documents in the collection at the beginning of the computational process.
