April Fool! ReplyButler for free

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

Is it an April Fool’s joke?

Or do you really get ReplyButler for Outlook (Home Edition) for free? The Home Edition is great, because it

  • writes the greeting phrase (“Dear Mr. Miller”) for you
  • warns you when you forget an attachment
  • includes pre-written text modules

    Everybody who wants a free license should visit on the first of april.  Don’t miss it and tell friends that might be interested beforehand. Because they won’t get anything for free afterwards… 😉

    Ecology: A blog, a tree

    Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

    Today we’re starting our new project “A blog, a tree”.  For each blog that writes about this project and uses the selected tree button we will plant (together with “I plant a tree”) a tree. (At our cost.)

    Each blogger can choose between 4 tree species, for this blog a pine tree will be planted:
    My blog has planted a pine tree.

    Please help us spread the word and give us a reason to plant many, many trees. If you want to take part, you can find here more about the project: A blog, a tree.

    (And don’t wait too long, we only have 1000 trees to plant.)

    ReplyButler 3.01 – Text modules for Outlook

    Friday, March 19th, 2010

    The new version 3.01 of ReplyButler is available and introduces several nice new features.

    Now it’s not only possible to set the subject or add attachments using a text module, but you can also add CC or BCC. As a second new feature, you can now automatically include the first line from a text file into your boilerplate text (e.g. for a personal promo code).

    Administrating the text modules has become easier, too.  Now they’re not only available as menu, but the sidebar also shows them in a tree view.

    The update and all information about the program can be found on the product page: ReplyButler – Text modules for Outlook.

    Trick: Using URLs as text modules

    Saturday, March 13th, 2010

    When answering customer e-mails it’s often helpful to quote URLs for more information. To avoid typos, you can use ReplyButler’s text module engine to store them nicely in menus.

    And now comes the interesting part: If your website is multi-language, you can store multiple URLs (pointing to the same page, but in different languages) in the same text module. It’s still just one text module. Just one item that you have to click on. But ReplyButler knows that there’s more than one URL and will use the URL that you have entered for the language that was used in the current e-mail.
