Join Karen Fredricks for an in-depth discussion in this video Formatting a message, part of Outlook 2010 Essential Training.

So I'm going to head over to the Format Text tab and give it a click.…This is where I find all my formatting options.…Now, first of all, it's important to understand the difference between HTML,…Plain Text, and Rich Text E-mail.…HTML can include all of the fun things like colors and sizes and even…graphics, if you want.…Plain Text won't allow you to jazz up that e-mail, but it's a good choice if…you're sending to people that you know read your e-mail on a cell phone.…
Now Rich Text is kind of a cross between the two;…however, Rich Text is kind of an old system that not a lot of people are using anymore.…
