Save an Email Message to an Entry from Microsoft Outlook

Updated 1 year ago by Niall Clifford

You can save email messages in Microsoft Outlook directly to Address Book entries, Opportunities, and Customer Service cases in Maximizer. Email messages are saved in the documents tab of the selected entries. You can save a single email message or multiple email messages, to an Address Book entry, Opportunity, or case.

If you or another user has already saved the email message to the entry, Maximizer will avoid creating a duplicate entry by not saving the email again.

If there are no Address Book entries, Opportunities, or Customer Service cases associated with the email message, you can search for entries in your Maximizer Address Book to save the email message to. The email message is then saved to the selected entries as a document. Depending on your logging preferences, notes may be automatically saved to the entries as well.

This procedure is written for Microsoft Outlook 2010. The steps may differ slightly in earlier versions of Outlook.
  1. In Outlook, select the email message or multiple email messages.
  2. In the HomeMessage, or Maximizer tab, expand the Save to Maximizer menu and select Save to Address Book EntrySave to Opportunity, or Save to Case.

To enable or disable the “Confirm when saving email” option, select the Maximizer Outlook Integration Preferences icon.

If the “Confirm when saving email” option is disabled, the email message is saved as a document to the Address Book entry that contains the email address of the sender or recipient, or the opportunity or case whose contact contains the email address of the sender or recipient.

If the “Confirm when saving email” option is selected, the Save Email to Maximizer Address Book Entry, Save Email to Opportunity, or Save Email to Case dialog box opens. The list displays all of the entries that contain the email address of the sender or recipient. If no such entries exist, the list is empty.

  1. If the entries that you want to save the email to do not appear in the list, click Search Address Book entriesSearch opportunities, or Search cases.

  • The Search Maximizer Address Book entries, Search Maximizer opportunities, or Search Maximizer cases dialog opens.
