Asking Others to Vote in an E-Mail Message

Use e-mail to poll people � and let Outlook keep track of the results for you � with the Voting Buttons feature. This makes it easy for you to ask others what they think, and easy for them to respond.

To do it, just create a message. In the message window, click the Options toolbar button. Select the Use voting buttons check box, then select the voting button names you want to use from the list. Click Close. Send the message.

When your recipients open your message, they'll see the voting buttons at the top. When they click a button, Outlook will send you a message telling you how they responded. To see at a glance how all the recipients voted, go to your Sent Items folder and open the original message.
