1 Outlook Inbox Quick Reference Guide Outlook Inbox Quick Reference Guide Note: As an alternate method of sending attachments, most Microsoft Office applications (Word, Excel, etc.) provide a Send To option on the File menu when a document is open. To specify the message format for one new message From the main Microsoft Outlook window, on the Actions menu, point to New Mail Message Using, and then click the format you want to use. To change the format of a message you have received or already created Customising Inbox layout Two ways to automatically preview messages You can preview your Inbox messages that is, read some or all of their contents without opening them in the main message list or in the reading pane, or both. Sorting messages There are thirteen predefined standard sorting arrangements for displaying your messages in the main message list: Attachments, Categories, Conversation, Date, Account, Flag, Folder, From, Importance, Size, Subject, To, and Type. To apply an arrangement, open the View menu and choose Arrange By. Do one of the following: When reading a Rich Text Format message With the message open, on the Format menu, click the format you want to use (Plain Text or HTML). Note If you use Word to read Rich Text messages, you cannot change the format of the message. What message format (HTML, RTF or Plain Text)? In Outlook, you have three choices for the format of messages you create: HTML (the default) Rich Text Format (RTF), and Plain Text. Messages you receive will have the format that the sender chose when sending the message. However, there is an option to view all received messages in plain text if that s your preference. Advantages HTML and RTF both allow you to use a variety of colours, fonts and formatting options in your messages. Also, in HTML and RTF format, pictures appear in the body of the message, as do icons for opening attached files (which means you can place explanatory comments above or below each one in the message.) Disadvantages Not all mail reading programs can understand HTML, and even fewer can understand RTF. If you send a message format that your recipient s program can t understand, they may not see what you intended. All programs understand plain text. A good rule of thumb When sending internal mail messages (within GSJBW), choose RTF or HTML format. When sending external messages, avoid RTF. Instead, use HTML or Plain Text format. You can choose the default format for all messages you send, and even set a different default for messages that go to specific people. To change the default message format for all new messages 1 On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab. 2 In the Compose in this message format list, click the format you want. When reading a plain text or HTML message With the message open, on the Edit menu, click Edit Message. On the Format menu, click the format you want to use (Plain Text, HTML, or Rich Text). Change the format for all messages sent to a particular contact 1 Open the contact card for the person. 2 In the box, double-click the contact s address. 3 In the Internet Format list, select the format you want use for messages to this recipient.
