With HTML formatting enabled (see the Options tab of the message ribbon) you can add horizontal lines in a message just as you would in Word; type a line character such as the underscore, hyphen, or equal character three times, and then click Return.
- [Instructor] You can use HTML formatting…within email message provided that it's turned on.…And the way you check this is you go to Options.…And notice that HTML Format Text appears,…which means that not only can I use things like lines,…but I have access to bold, italicized text,…underlined text, strikethrough, and so on.…If I want to bold text, I mean that's really easy.…I can find that right here.…But the question of how we would insert something…like a line, just a line to separate sections of text,…is a little bit different.…
And we're going to do this using the same HTML trick…that we use in Microsoft Word, which is simply…to type the underscore character three times,…press Enter, and we get a solid line.…If you type the equal sign three times,…you get a double line.…And if you type a hyphen, you get a thinner version…of the line you get with an underscore.…So three different lines you can make very easily…to separate sections of your text one from another…using HTML replacement.…
