My Outlook Config

1 minute read


This post is to serve as tweaks for my Outlook install.

To Resolve:

  1. First, I like to remove the “action items” bar under senders name:

File – Mange Addins – Sign into OWA – Uncheck all

2. Next I like to remove the vertical bar to Move up/down, reply, delete, ect next to message:

Quick Access Toolbar – Enable Mouse Mode

3. Then, open File – Options and configure:

File – Options – Mail – Signatures – Set signature for new emails/replies/forwards. This is easiest set if you go to your sent items and copy your signature block.

File – Options – Mail – Stationary and Fonts – Set all (new, reply/forward, and plain text) to Segoe UI, Regular, 10pt

File – Options – Addins – Go – Uncheck all but “Microsoft Exchange”

File – Options – People – Uncheck “Show user photographs when available”

File – Office Account – Remove all services. Background – Circuit. Office Theme – Dark Grey.

View – Reading Pane – Right

View – Reading Pane – Options – Uncheck first two items (Mark as read after x seconds/ Mark as read on selection change)

Right click System Tray icon – Uncheck all but “Show Network Warnings”
