Send emails in plain text from Outlook Express (No formatting)

Composing a rich-formatting email in Outlook Express By default, Outlook Express will send email messages with rich formatting - a fancy term to imply that you can use different fonts, colors, bold, underline, italic, and other text processing commands inside the body of the emails you compose and send. Since "HTML" or rich format is so widely supported by today's email programs, this isn't much of an issue - however, especially if you are using graphics in your messages (either plain old clipart images or topical pictures), recipients of your emails may have several issues, the least of which is that they need to manually approve your message as a legitimate piece of communication before their email program or webmail client (Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, Gmail...) allows the full content of your message to be seen. For this reason and others, Outlook Express lets you customize that sending and make it always send emails in plain text (no formatting, no pictures, etc. - just text) - which guarantees that your emails will not face some of the problems we mentioned.

Use plain text for Outlook Express emails

Follow these simple steps to restrict messages you send to using no formatting at all:

Once you are done, click on the "OK" button to save your plain text settings, and click "OK" once more to close the Options dialog and return to Outlook Express.
