Chapter 5. Mail Editors > Default Message Options

5.4. Default Message Options

One of the biggest challenges in Outlook is to find the right dialog for the option you want to configure. Microsoft engineers seem to have taken perverse delight in scattering configuration settings in some of the most illogical places (un)imaginable. Default message format settings are on one dialog; reply and forward format settings are on another—buried beneath a button simply labeled E-mail Options. While we can't explain this madness, we can guide you through this maze of dialogs, and in the process explain which option does what, where, and why.

This section details default options that, once changed, apply to all subsequent messages, unless overridden for a particular message. Most of these settings apply to both mail editors; exceptions are noted where applicable. To change a configured option for a single instance of a message, see Section 5.5 later in this chapter.
