Formatting Message Text

You can specify a file format for message text. The Plain Text format is one that all e-mail programs recognize, but it doesn't support text formatting. The Rich Text format allows text formatting, but it's not always supported. However, most programs that don't recognize Rich Text, convert the message to plain text. When you use Rich Text, you can use tools, such as bold, italicize, underline, and color text, on the Format menu and in the Fonts and Color dialogs to help draw the reader's attention to key words and emphasize the meaning of your message.

Format the Message Text

Open the message you want to format.

Click the Format menu, and then click Make Rich Text, if available.

Select the text you want to format.

Click the Colors button on the toolbar, use the dialog color wheel to select a color, and then click the Close button.

Click the Fonts button on the toolbar, use the dialog settings (font type, size, style, and effects) to format the message text, and then click the Close button.

Click the Format menu, point to Style, and then select a font style, such as bold, italics, or underline.

Click the Format menu, point to Alignment, and then select an alignment: Align Left, Center, Justify, or Align Right.
