When I create a message in I can toggle it to plain text. How can I do the same with “Outlook for Mac”? Basically I’d like the feature described by this Microsoft help page, but this page is for Windows.

Background: plain text email is typically strongly encouraged in OSS (open-source software) community.

  • Isn't this in the same place in the Mac version as it is in Windows?

  • @nohillside Nope. The menu in Mac is totally different from Windows version. The menu items mentioned in that help page doesn’t exist in the Mac version at all. Mar 28, 2023 at 17:41
  • I ended up using mail.app instead, but I’d still love to know whether Outlook has this feature. Apr 2, 2023 at 23:41
