Especially the manager-delegate scenario, Outlook is THE tool to be used. But even we have great features, supporting our daily work and many scenarios, there are always limits. And these limits can cause a lot of trouble.

In almost all cases you can avoid these issues, when you follow some principals. But therefore, you might need some background, which I’m covering in this post.

Since the dawn of email, organizations have struggled with the way that users reply to emails. Confusion (or worse) occurs when emails include groups, CC, BCC, internal, and external recipients.
