Occassionally the Master Category list was loading slow in NEO Pro 5.03
This has been resolved.
New Features NEO Pro 5.03
Import/Export functionality for Outlook categories
Using a semicolon separated CSV file, all Outlook categories can now be exported or imported to easily synchronize categories across multiple machines. If needed, the CSV file can be manually edited before importing into Outlook. Click the Application Button to access this new functionality.
Non-licensed users cannot import and can export only 5 categories.
Categories now stored in PST for Outlook 2007 and later
NEO Pro now stores the categories in same location as Outlook does: in the registry for Outlook 2003 (and earlier) and in the PST for Outlook 2007 and later. This automatically synchronizes the categories available in NEO with those in Outlook (and the other way around). See below for further improvements in category management.
Multiple Exchange Mailboxes now allowed in NEO's Catalog
Outlook 2010 has introduced possibility to open multiple exchange mailboxes within Outlook. Using NEO Pro 5.03 these additional exchange mailboxes (not being delegate mailboxes) can now be added to the Catalog for a seamless view on all your messages.
Exclude an Outlook folder from Active Mail
When using Active Mail all new mail will show up in the Active Mail folder until the Active Mail flag is removed (F12). Only when classifying certain messages as Bulk, can mail be excluded from the Active Mail folder. To make this much more flexible, NEO Pro 5.03 gives you the possibility to exclude any Outlook folder from Active Mail: right-click the Outlook folder within NEO, select Folder Properties and set the proper Exclude option (following icon will be shown for these folders: ). Using an Outlook rule combined with a separate Outlook folder, the user now has full control which messages he wants to show up in the Active Mail folder. When not yet using Active Mail, you can do so by going to Tools | Options | Workflow tab and set the appropriate options; the Active Mail folder sits under the Status tab from where you can make this folder visible in the Hot view.
New virtual folders
Following new virtual folders are introduced in this version (a rebuild is necessary to populate these folders):
- Date Folder: Last 30 Days. Containing all messages from the last 30 days.
- Status Folder: No Category. Containing all messages that do not have a category assigned.
- Status Folder: All Items. Containing all items within the entire Outlook scope.
Improved Category picker (Ctrl+T) functionality
The category picker's checkbox ‘Add all categories to master list’ has improved functionality: when selected all categories will be added to the master list but also any new category will be added to the master category list to maintain consistency between Outlook and NEO. It is recommended to keep this setting 'On'.
'Close NEO when Outlook closes' now working in all configurations
Selecting 'Close NEO when Outlook closes' from Tools | Options, was not working in all configurations. This has been corrected. When selected there is no need to first close NEO when closing Outlook as closing Outlook will force NEO to close as well.
Rebuilding Catalog saves Hot view
When rebuilding the Catalog, the Hot view was not maintained correctly (Outlook folders in the Hot view disappeared after the rebuild). NEO Pro now saves the Hot view when doing a rebuild and restores the view when finished.
Cleaning up empty NEO folders
Empty NEO folders were not always removed. This has been improved.
Improved performance of Quick File Recent menu
Occasionally there was a slight delay in showing the Quick File Recent menu. This has been improved.
Hiding system messages
The hidden Outlook message class IPM.Configuration.Autocomplete is not shown anymore within NEO.
Improved error messages
Error messages during synchronization have been improved to show Folder Name next to Folder Id.
Internal hyperlinks not working
Hyperlinks to internal network drives were failing when clicked within NEO Pro. This has been resolved.
Delayed cleanup Unread Folder not working during DST
Delayed cleanup of Unread Folder (on the Status Tab) was not working with DST (summer time). This has been resolved.
Fast sync errors in Outlook 2010
When running Outlook 2010 in online mode, the Fast Synchronize function caused sync errors. This has been resolved.
Issues resolved from beta version
Drag-drop of email messages resolved
Beta version of NEO Pro 5.03 had problems with drag-drop of email messages from NEO's message list. This now is solved in this released version.
