Hour 5. Working with Email > Using Word As the Email Editor

Using Word As the Email Editor

The Word editor provides you with a full-featured word processor for composing your email. Although it might be overkill, many people spend a large part of their workday sending email and the features they've come to rely on in Word can be used in Outlook, too.

Outlook has supported the Word editor since Office 97, but it was buggy, crashed often, and was the cause of many resource leaks. In short, using Word was not a pleasant experience for many Office users. As a result, Word as an email editor has a bad reputation. Fortunately, it has improved a lot since then. If you tried the Word editor with a previous version and were disappointed, give it a second chance—you'll be pleasantly surprised.
