I'm not an Outlook expert, in fact, I rarely use it.
However, one of my customers asked me about a problem I can't answer.
I believe she's using 2003.
Here's what she sent me: (Copied from the email) (This is on new emails, not replies, forwards.)

"Good morning Pete,

 

This is what a message

From me looks like when I

Type it.

 

See how each of the first letters of

The first word on each line

Becomes a capital letter.

 

This happens after I start

The second word on that line,

It automatically changes.

 

????????????

 

JCMC"

Any help is always appreciated.
Pete

Greetings, cfourkays !

I do not see the example referred to in the letter. But the issue could be cause by MS Word.  Look in the option menu in MS Word and see if grammer check or other options that may cause the issue are enabled. Disable those options.

Or in Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Mail Format. Uncheck use MS Word as editor.

Best wishes!

Greetings, cfourkays.

war1 is spot on.  This problem is caused when Word is set to be the mail editor and has been configured to capitalize the first word of every sentence.  Word treats a carriage-return as indicating the begining of a new sentence.  Carraige-returns should only be used to begin a new paragraph.  Sentences should be left to word wrap their way to the next line.

Cheers!

Fast answer, folks.
Many thanks.
It was the uncheck use Word that did it.
If I went back and checked, I'll bet War1 answered at least 25 of my Q's in that many different catagories.
Have a great day, Go Duke! (After the amazing Scarlet Knights of Rutgers)
