Outlook’s annoying AutoArchive popup

November 25, 2010

Here’s a great example of what I hate about computers. Outlook’s AutoArchive popup that pops up once in a while in Windows.

It does a great job of telling me what will happen under the hood if I click Yes. It does absolutely nothing to help me understand what will actually change for me if I select either option or why I would care. Just do what you need to do, Outlook, don’t bother me with your personal problems, go away. “I don’t care” would be a great button to click in such dialogs.
