Settings in Outlook 365
This tip shows how to create and add custom holidays, for example, of your company to the Outlook calendar.
By default, if Reading pane is opened, Outlook opens replies and forwards in the same window, but you can fix this behavior and open them in a new window.
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.
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.
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.
You can display or hide a Reading pane that displays the header and partial contents of the selected message.
By default Outlook shows feature called the Mini Toolbar. This feature can be useful, but somebody might want to turn it off. This tip shows how to turn on or turn off this feature.
Sometimes you just need to have a quick preview of an email before deciding whether to open it. Outlook provides a feature called AutoPreview that shows the first few lines of your emails.
When you open an e-mail, it automatically is marked as read. However, if you are using the Reading Pane to view messages instead of opening them, you have a number of possible options for marking e-mails as being read.
