Outlook 2002 Layout

I expect the answer is very simple, but how do I configure Outlook so that when I type a new email instead of it taking up all the page from left to right, it stops about half way accross and starts a new line. I get emails like that but mine are always full page across.

I think that you need to set Outlook to use Word as your editor. You can then use View|Ruler and drag the right hand 'arrow' to the left.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I had to go out. Thanks for that I will give it a try.

Just had a quick look and that seems to be the answer. Can you tell me if this has any effect on recipients, some of whom may not have Word installed.Also I send out bulk emails to about 30 members of a club (newsletters) which I write in Word then copy and paste into an email, do you think there are likely to be any problems with that?
Thanks for the info.

The recipients should not need to have Word installed. Word is used as the text editor but the e-mail is sent as plain text or HTML depending on your settings.

Thanks for that.
