How to set right margin on writing page in Outlook 2007

I would like to find out how to set the on-screen right margin during composition with Outlook 2007. On this computer there are two of us who have Outlook accounts. On the page for writing emails the text margin for the other user is about 3 or 4 spaces from the sidebar. This is with Vista Ultimate on a 24" monitor. On my Outlook page, however, the text margin is about three inches from the right edge of the screen. Both of us do have the sidebar enabled. It is aesthetically displeasing to me to have such a large unused space on the right of the screen. at the same time, I'm quite sure that the margin setting would not make any difference to the recipient of the email, as their machine would adjust what gets to their address would be tailored by there computer to conform to their screen. I have been unable to find out how to reset the margin even having used the F1 help menu. I simply can't find it mentioned. I would like for the right margin in my Outlook to be more like that of the other user. How can I go about making such an adjustment? In both cases the left margin is only a very few spaces from that edge; I would simply like to be able to use more of the screen without all the unused space. I know how to make such an adjustment in Word 2007, but I can't find that option in Outlook. To say that I'm frustrated is an understatement. Thank you for your attention and help. My email address is CharlesEtheridge@comcast.net. I look forward to your reply.

    For the record, this is the case with my Gateway FX530XV. The ruler at the top of the screen as things are now goes up to about #28. Thanks for the help.

    There seems to be a bit of a misunderstanding. The suggested answer was fine for the margins on a printed page but it didn't seem to be related to the text margin during composition on the monitor and that is what i want to modify. As I said in my previous added comment the ruler as it is goes up to
    # 28. Thanks.

If your background is interesting, you'll probably want it to show down the left-hand side. You cannot set a right margin.

There should be some type of margin adjustment at the top where you will be able to set the adjustment of how far you want the margin to be. Most of them have an auto preset to allow how much space it is programmed to let you type in. Some of them will not let you change them, but others should. Try this: click on the vertical bar right above the area where you type in the messages you want to send and that should allow you to change the margin.

Make iGoogle Your Startup Page in Microsoft Outlook


If you are a Microsoft Outlook user that regularly uses iGoogle as your dashboard, have you ever thought about combining the two? It's nearly trivial to add your iGoogle page to Outlook and make it the startup page.

Create a new folder by right-clicking anywhere in the folder tree and choosing "New Folder"

Give the folder a relevant name, something like iGoogle works.

Now right-click on the new folder and choose Properties, and then on the Home Page tab, check the box for "Show home page by default for this folder" and put this into the address box:

http://www.google.com/ig

Of course you can use any web page as your startup page, not just iGoogle.


At this point you should be able to see your iGoogle page by just clicking on the folder.

Set iGoogle as the Default Startup Page

Open up the Options panel through Tools \ Options on the menu, and then choose the Advanced Options button on the Other tab.

You'll see a setting for "Startup in this folder" with a Browse button next to it. Click that button and choose the iGoogle folder as your startup page.

Now when you startup Outlook, you'll be taken directly to your iGoogle dashboard (you do have to login the first time).

Connecting my email to outlook express


Hi
Outlook Express doesn't accept web based email anymore.

I recommend Outlook 2007. You will also need to install the outlook connector to be able to do it.

Right now Outlook supports Hotmail web email addresses only.

In Outlook click on TOOLS and then ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
Click on NEW and choose the Microsoft Exchange,POP3, IMAP or HTTP.
Then just follow the On-Screen Instructions.
Don't tick the box where it says Manually configure server settings

cheers
