Chapter 39. Sending Messages > Setting Mail Format Options

Setting Mail Format Options

You can use the mail format options to specify the appearance of your outgoing messages. You can override these default settings for individual messages.

To set mail format options:

1.
From the Tools menu, choose Options.

2.
On the Mail Format tab of the Options dialog box, choose a format from the Compose in this message format drop-down list (Figure 39.2).

Figure 39.2. Choose a format for outgoing e-mail messages.


Choose HTML to send the message in the format used for Web pages, which allows text formatting. Most popular mail programs can display HTML e-mail messages.

Choose Rich Text if you know that your recipient uses Outlook too. This setting allows you to use boldfacing and other formatting in the message.

Choose Plain Text if you don’t know the mail format that can be read by your recipients. You won’t be able to format text in outgoing messages, but your messages will be readable by anyone.

3.
Select the Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages check box if you want to be able to use all of Word’s features, such as the thesaurus, when you create e-mail messages.

4.
Click OK when you have finished.
