Settings in Outlook 2013
If you frequently sign your messages using not only your name, but also additional information such as your job title and contact information, you'll appreciate Outlook's Signature feature. When enabled, it appends text of your choice to the end of every message that create and/or reply to.
This option controls which address book you see when you open the Address Book (via clicking Ctrl+Shift+B) and when you click the To, Cc, or Bcc buttons when composing e-mails.
Creating custom menus in Outlook is a funny feature you can use to create groups of the options that you use most often, and then plug them into the menu you name and use yourself.
In some situation you may want to send your vCard in every message. This lets recipients enter the information in their address book quickly and without errors.
Any of Outlook's default views can be modified to suit your needs. You can customize the fields displayed, sorting, grouping, filtering, fonts, and other formatting options.
Usually Outlook users are using folders to organize messages, but you can also use colors. For example, you might apply a special color to all messages from a particular person. You can then see at a glance which messages are from that person.
If Outlook's built-in arrangements don't provide the view you need, you can create your own grouping levels by customizing your view.
By default, Outlook displays only a small subset of the available fields for messages. You can add columns for other fields, such as CC or Sensitivity, to show additional information.
The default settings minimize Outlook to the Taskbar, but you can make settings to minimize it to the Tray.
In order to increase the speed of opening e-mail messages and reduce risks involved with opening of unsolicited messages, you can switch Outlook to the plain text reading mode.
