Recall and replace sent messages
You send an email message, and then you start to have second thoughts. In Outlook 2013, you can recall or replace email that you’ve sent. Or you can resend an email to try to repair the damage. Here’s how it works.

Reach out with contact groups (distribution lists)
If you often send email to the same group of people, you can save time by using a distribution list, which is called a contact group in Outlook. Instead of typing out everyone’s address whenever you email the group, just type the name of the contact group. Here’s how to create one.
Track email with read receipts
In Outlook 2013, you can request delivery and read receipts when you send a message. Why? To make sure the recipients get it and open it, if you’re not sure about the email address or if the recipients check their email, or maybe you’d just like to know the message got through. Whatever the case, adding a request is easy to do.
Password protect your mailbox
With Outlook and Windows, multiple people can protect their email on one shared computer. First, there’s sharing at work and home. In this scenario, people can protect their email with their own password-protected Windows user accounts. The second scenario is sharing a public computer, where the best way to protect your email is by using the Outlook Web App or some other browser-based email app.
