'[OT:] Question for Microsoft Outlook PICLIST users'
2004\02\22@173949 by Ken Pergola

It's time for a slap on the forehead moment for me. :)

I'd appreciate if someone has the time to show me what I'm doing wrong.

I'm using Microsoft Outlook 2000 SP3 9.0.0.6627:

My PICLIST posts always come out not as I intended in terms of formatting.
:(

I have the following setting:
Automatically wrap at 76 characters when sending

When I compose the message, it definitely does not wrap at 76 characters --
that's why it looks awful because the word wrap is done when sending.

Is there any way I can set the word-wrap when *composing* my message?

I've been looking through the help, but can't see anything that helps me out
in this regard.


Thank you.

Humbly,

Ken Pergola

I use the same version of Outlook and I also haven't found any setting to
make the editor show the wrap while composing.

To preview the wrap, I adjust the message window to 76 characters wide.

Thanks for your suggestion, but I've always had Outlook in text mode.
I still can't find a way that let's you set the word-wrap line length while
*composing* in Outlook's editor.

Thanks for your suggestion anyway though. :)


Best regards,

Ken Pergola

When composing a mail in plain text, the editor should never wrap lines.
Plain text should be a WYSIWYG format, but rarely is with Outlook.

Have a look at http://www.lemis.com/email/email-format.html for the problems
that Outlook causes by word wrapping output plain-text emails.

Regards

Mike

Ken,

If you do the trick of setting a narrow window width, as suggested by
someone else to get a good idea of how it will look when sent, then when
you've finnished composing, close the window without sending.

It will be saved in your drafts folder. You can then double click the email
in the drafts folder and preview it before sending. The preview will have
been wordwrapped, and you will see how it will look to the rest of the
world.

Hope this helps!

All the best...Mike.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the tip -- I appreciate your time and help.
At some point I'll probably switch to a different e-mail client.

Thanks Mike,

I've personaly used Ritlabs "TheBat" for several years at home.  It dosen't
use the Windows address book so is considerably more impervious to the
various virii that try to send themselves to everybody.  It has an anti-spam
plugin and also has some very powerfull filtering abilities (you can even
run a mailing list with it). Although it's not free (35 euros to register
after the free trial) it's worth the money IMO http://www.ritlabs.com/

I also noticed that Mozilla have a separate mail client whilst I was
downloading their Firefox browser recently.  The email/usenet client is
called Thunderbird. I've not tried it, but if it's as good as the browser
it's definitely worthwhile having a look http://www.mozilla.org/products/

Regards

Mike

Re: Michael Rigby-Jones' e-mail client links:

Hi Mike,

Thanks again for your help and time. I'll put these links you gave me on the
'to do' list.
I archive all PICLIST messages on my local machine for reference purposes,
so if these e-mail clients offer more in that regard than Outlook then that
would be great. I'll have to research these products in the future.

Best regards,

Ken Pergola
