HELP needed for beginner Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I have a problem which I do not seem to solve yet. At home I have Mac and a Macbook air to go and starting next week I will have an Iphone.
In the office (hospital) I use a PC and PC network. I cannot go on the network with the Mac Air. I cannot install program, but I can use an USB stick.
How am I going to handle my office email?
Anyone, or do I have to do it twice and send important email tot myself?

please anyone who can help?

When in this situation (until I got my iPhone), I used the Mail rule preference settings in OmniFocus and e-mailed the relevant messages to my home account from my work PC. As far as I am aware, there is no easier way of doing it.
Txs, i figured that out. What if you DO have your Iphone? (i am a beginner and have to wait till i'll be home to figured it out because my new Iphone will be there to pick up)
Well, I think what Jonathan was thinking was that if you have your iPhone, you can capture work-related actions using the iPhone version of OmniFocus. That works in general, but doesn't really help you with work emails as much.

If you can't run OmniFocus on a computer at work, then forwarding emails to your machine at home is still probably the way to go...
As Brian has told you - with your iPhone, you can add your actions/projects that are work related very easily (and keep them synched with your desktop OmniFocus), but you still won't be able to attach e-mails to them. This is even if you are able to use the Exchange features of the iPhone Mail application for your work account (Apple blocks the ability for one app on the iPhone to talk to another, apart from a few of their own). You will still need to e-mail them to yourself to get them added to your OmniFocus inbox. However, if you leave your Mac running at home and Mail and OmniFocus open, any messages you send to yourself will eventually appear in the inbox in OmniFocus on your iPhone if you are using e.g. MobileMe or another form of WebDAV to keep your desktop and iPhone databases synched. However, this is not very environmentally or electricity bill -friendly in the current financial climate!
