One of our users has asked us:


1. how do I set a fixed width for the text when composing a message? (it wraps the text within a window, but I want fixed width  - i.e. 70 characters, or 5 in).
 
2. How do I force Outlook to prefix each line of the quoted text when replying or forwarding
with a desired symbol (i.e. ">")? I can do that only in plain text, but I'd like to be able to do that in html formatting as well.

Can you give us the expert answer?  Thanks!

1.  Unless it's an undocumented or poorly documented feature, then there is no way to set a fixed width for the message body.

2.  Click Tools->Options->E-mail Options.  Click the pulldown titled "When replying to a message" and select "Prefix each line of the original message".  Repeat this for forwarding.
