State Judicial Wants Your Feedback on the New E-Filing System
The Colorado Judicial Department is working to build a new, in-house e-filing system to replace LexisNexis File & Serve effective December 31, 2012. Progress toward the completion of migrating to the new state e-filing system can be followed at the judicial branch website. We are looking for members who are willing to serve on subcommittees to help design the new system. Please contact Reba Nance at reban@cobar.org if you are interested.
Tip of the Week from Reba Nance
Printing a List of E-mails in Outlook

Many of us use Outlook as our e-mail client. Most of us know how to print an individual e-mail, but what if you want to print a list of e-mails in your Inbox or in a folder? Chances are, if you ever have tried, you ended up with a copy of an individual e-mail instead of the list you wanted.

Here’s how to print out a list:
1. Open Outlook and be sure your Inbox is displayed. You should see a list of your e-mails.
2. Select the list of e-mails you wish to print.
3. Click on the first e-mail in the list so it is highlighted.
4. Scroll down (or up) to the last e-mail.
5. Press the <shift> key and click on the last e-mail.
6. All of the e-mails should now be highlighted. (If you want to select multiple e-mails that are not in contiguous order, press the <ctrl> key as you click each e-mail with your mouse to highlight only those you want to print on the list).
7. Go to the toolbar on top and select "File" and then "Print" (just as you would if you wanted to print a document).
8. The default is typically "Memo Style" (in blue). Change that to "Table Style." Now click on "Only Selected Rows" and, finally, click "OK." If you want to see a preview of what it will look like before you print, click "Preview" before you click "OK" and you'll see exactly what will print.
