    Hi, VamshiKorde.

    Outlook has no such concept as tabs.  The only way to get tabs in Outlook is with a third-party product.

    There is a way to get tabs in an outlook message if you create a custom form

    Good point, kfalandays.  

    Perhaps I misconstrued the question.  I interpreted it as asking if there was a way to give Outlook a tabbed interface (i.e. each message opening in a separate tab).  If instead the intent is to have a message with tabs, then as @kfalandays noted that is possible through a custom form.  There's a catch though.  Everyone you email will have to have that custom form installed for them to see it as you do.  Custom form solutions work really well in a corporate environment, but not so well if you're emailing the public.
