Message Options

Reader rating: 3 out of 10


Every message that you send from Outlook can have different specific settings. These settings include message importance, receipts requested, time sent, day expired and more.

This How-To Article shows you the basics of how to set settings for your E-mail messages.

Message Options

1. Create a new message.

2. Click the "Options..." button from the top standard toolbar.

3. First, set the importance. As a general rule, if you are just sending a very non-important message, set the importance level to "Low". The more important the message, the higher you set the importance level.

4. Sensitivity is usually an option that you can leave as is. You will only need to change it if you are sending a confidental message, intending for it only to be read by the person it is sent to.

5. The next section of settings will depend on your version of Outlook. If you are using the Corporate version, you will be able to set voting options.

6. Under the "Delivery Options" frame, you can also set options such as when you would like the message to be delivered, as well as expiration times.

7. An important option under the "Delivery Options" frame is "Have replies sent to:". You can enter an address that you would like replies to the message sent to. This is useful if you will be in a different location when the message is replied to. You also may want to filter your E-mail replies to a different E-mail account.

8. Once you have finished setting settings, click the "Close" button.
