INTRODUCTION

If you find that you constantly compose messages using Microsoft Word or some other message format, such as plain text, that is not Outlook's default setting, you can configure Outlook to use your preferred format by default.


To use Word to edit or read messages, check the Use Microsoft Word to Edit E-mail Messages and Use Microsoft Word to Read Rich Text E-mail Messages check boxes.
