This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

I believe you are using word to compose and read an email so ideally it should take the ms word setting.

When I compose my Outlook, it's in html format.  Don't see anything
in Outlook which give indications that's using Word.

I recall I ever found a link a couple of years back on how to turn
this off but I've misplaced that link/url
