A Simple Useful Modification to MS Outlook's Deleted Items Folder

Editor's Note

I'm so excited! This week we are featuring an article about a messy office contest! I know a lot about messy offices, and my own saga is an interesting one. I have a Jekyll and Hyde office personality. When I work in someone else's office, like at a company, my office is perfect. Everything is organized, all papers are always filed away, and I've even been held out as an organizational example (a good one, that is) when I work on site. But get me in my own office at home, and it's a completely different story. I'm one of these people who knows where everything is, even though it looks like a hurricane just swept through the office. There are piles and stacks everywhere. I don't understand why I can be two different people when it comes to office maintenance, but there you have it. I took the quiz on the mess office Web site and found that my office personality type (at least right how, when I'm working at home) is Whirlwind. I'm going to assume that's a good thing.
