formatting of Outlook for Mac, which is continuously changing.

Copper Contributor

I frequently run into issues while creating a draft in Outlook for Mac. I have already nicely structured the material with paragraph space, tabs, and headings. However, the formatting seems to change when I send the email and look it up in my sent items folder, resulting in odd spacing, tabs, and paragraphs.

Is it possible to stop emails from altering in format after they have been sent?

I understand your frustration with the formatting changes in Outlook for Mac. Unfortunately, formatting inconsistencies can occur when sending emails, and it can be challenging to prevent them entirely. However, there are a few steps you can take to minimize formatting issues:

1. Simplify your formatting: Avoid using complex formatting styles or features that may not be supported universally. Stick to basic formatting options such as bold, italics, bullet points, and numbered lists.

2. Use plain text format: When composing emails, you can choose the option to send them in plain text format instead of rich text or HTML. Plain text emails are less likely to experience formatting issues, but keep in mind that they lack advanced formatting options.

3. Test before sending: Before sending an important email, it's a good practice to send a test email to yourself or a colleague to check how the formatting appears in the recipient's inbox. This allows you to identify any issues and make adjustments as needed.

4. Use a different email client: If the formatting issues persist despite your efforts, you might consider using a different email client for composing and sending emails. There are alternative email applications available for Mac that may provide more consistent formatting.

While it may not be possible to completely prevent formatting alterations after an email has been sent, following these suggestions should help minimize the occurrence of such issues.
