Using Mailytica’s Outlook Integration#

Reply with Smart Response#

Smart Responses are predefined replies that you can insert easily when replying to messages or when starting a new email. Depending on the topic assigned to the message, Mailytica will propose one of these responses for you to insert in your email, saving you time and effort.

  1. To use Mailytica’s Outlook integration, first open any email message in your inbox and click on Mailytica in the tab bar.

  2. Select the option Smart Response and a pop-up menu will be displayed on the right side of your screen.

  3. On the Mailytica menu, you will first see the topic that was assigned to the message. Topics are selected automatically, depending on the AI models that have been trained. If you want to change the topic, you can select it from the dropdown. If your topic has multiple Smart Responses, you will see a second dropdown to choose which one to use with the message.

  4. Next, if you added any Internal Notes in the Online Platform, they will be displayed here. Internal notes provide more information about the Smart Response and will not be shown in the final email message.

  5. Following, if you activated the Messages from sender option, you will see the number of messages that you have received from that address.

  6. Then, the Smart Response will be displayed, and you can click on the Reply with Smart Response button to use it. You can change the message or add more information if necessary. Click Send and you will have replied to your first email using Mailytica’s Smart Responses.

Reply with Salutation#

A different response option is Respond with Salutation. With this option, you can reply to an incoming email message with the appropriate salutation based on the sender’s name and gender.

  1. If you go back to Mailytica’s Smart Response menu on the right-side of your screen, below Reply with Smart Response you also have the option Respond with Salutation.

  2. If you select this option, it will create a new reply to the received message beginning with Dear Mrs. Name or Dear Mr. Name, and you can write the rest of the message. This is useful in case of highly personalized replies.

Move Messages#

Next, you have the option Move Message. If you have to regularly move your emails into preset folders, this feature can be very helpful. For instance, you may have different folders for order confirmations, cancellations, returns, etc. You can use Mailytica’s Move Message feature instead of sorting through endless emails. This way, you will be able to automatically separate your messages according to their topic directly in your inbox.

If you activated this setting as explained in the section Outlook Configuration, you can use the button to move the message into an appropriate sub-folder under your inbox.

  1. To use this functionality, you need to create a folder in your Outlook inbox with the same name as the email topic. To do so, simply right-click on Inbox and select New Folder. For instance, we can create a new folder called Order Status to store all the email messages that belong to that topic.

  2. Once you have created the folder, first open a received email message, then click on Mailytica in the top tab bar, and select Smart Response.

  3. Next, click on the Move Message button in Mailytica’s Smart Response menu. Now the email message will be in the sub-folder you created.

Troubleshooting Mailytica’s Outlook Integration#


By default, Outlook deactivates external add-ins after 30 days. To avoid having to enable Mailytica’s add-in every month, you can modify your registry settings. More information can be found in Microsoft’s website at Support for keeping add-ins enabled.

If you followed the steps outlined in the Outlook Installation and Outlook Configuration sections but still can’t find the Mailytica add-in in your Outlook app, or you notice that the add-in has been automatically disabled, try the following:

  1. First open the Registry Editor. Just press the Windows key, type regedit and hit Enter.

  2. In the Registry Editor, navigate to following path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Resiliency\DoNotDisableAddinList.

  3. Next, right-click in the window, choose New DWORD (32-bit) Value.

  4. Name this new entry as Mailytica GmbH.Mailytica and set its value to 1.

  5. Click OK to save your new settings and restart your Outlook application. Now Outlook should keep the Mailytica add-in active without further issues.
