Creative emails

Emails don't have to have a boring design!

If you're using Outlook Express, the normal email will "just' be a black font (typically Times or Arial - size 10) on normal white background (letter style).

This style is perfect for a short message email or an official looking email, but for "talking with friends" or sending out birthday emails etc., sometimes we would like it to look a little more unique and interesting - to be able to make more creative emails.

With a few clicks from the tools menu, you can change the design.

I have found that the easiest way of doing that is writng the email and make your design changes afterwards.


  • Write the email
  • Mark the part you want to change (left click, hold down the mouse button and drag over the text)
  • as long as the text is marked you can make all kinds of changes to it

In this example I chose to change the font, size of font, font color, I made the font Italic, center-aligned it all and inserted an image...a few very easy steps to take to create a more interesting email.

You can also choose to change the background of your email

Choosing a color:

Click Format > Background > and choose color or Picture

Choosing a Background Image:

The images best suited for background images is either colorfaded images or tileable images.You can chose to use one of the pre-installed backgrounds, you can find on the list, when you choose Picture from the Format background menu, or you can choose to Browse for an image from your own Pictures folder.
