Working in the Message Window

Outlook displays e-mail messages in the Mail module. When you create or respond to an e-mail message, it opens in a message window. The message window has its own set of commands separate from those in the Outlook program window. You can format and modify outgoing e-mail messages by using the message window commands.

Commands related to managing messages (such as saving, printing, securing, and sharing a message) are available from the Office menu.

In this exercise, you will take a tour of the message item window. There are no practice files for this exercise.
