How to change the Mail Count Display

Outlook can display either the number of unread e-mails or the total number of e-mails in a folder alongside the folder name.

Improved AutoComplete

Outlook uses two features to resolve and complete names entered into email messages: AutoComplete and Autoresolution.

Adding Data files

Although Outlook automatically creates Data Files as needed when you add accounts, you might want to add your own Data Files (.pst - files) to a profile. For example, perhaps you use an Exchange Server account for your primary Outlook store, but want a set of personal folders to serve as an archive; or perhaps you have an Exchange Server account and are adding a POP3 account.

Set default fonts for E-mails

Outlook enables you to specify default fonts to use for different situations when dealing with e-mail. Additionally you can individually configure default font settings for composing new e-mail and replying and forwarding.

Reply and forward options

For replies and forwarded messages, you can choose to attach the original text, to include and indent the text, or to add a prefix to each line of the original message or reply without including the original text.

How to change the Stationery in Outlook

If you like visually appealing message templates called stationaries, you may want to set up Outlook to always use a particular stationery for all new messages.

Color coding messages

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.
