View Websites

If you have a Web site you frequent (for example, a vendor's site, or your company's intranet), you can access it in Outlook 2000 by specifying it as the home page for an Outlook folder.

You can create a new folder for the site or assign a home page to an existing folder.

Step by Step

To assign a home page to a folder:

  1. Right-click the folder you want to assign the folder home page to, click Properties on the shortcut menu, and then click the Home Page tab.
  2. In the Address box, type the address of the Web page you want to use as the folder home page, or click Browse to select from a list.
  3. If you want to see the Web page whenever you click the folder, select the Show home page by default for this folder check box.

Now, when you select the folder, the contents of the Web page will appear in the Outlook window. You can also add a shortcut to the Web page on the Outlook Bar. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Outlook Bar Shortcut to Web Page.

Note: If you choose not to show the home page by default, you can still view the folder's home page by clicking the folder and then clicking Show Folder Home Page on the View menu.
