    Outlook emails: any drawbacks of changing to RTF format?


    Outlook 365 File > Options > Mail: Compose messages "Compose messages in this format:" - currently this is set to HTML Q: what are the drawbacks when this is set to Rich Text (RTF) ? The only drawback I know of is there are no (graphic) message separators when replying to mails. Not sure if there are any others. Thanks.

    :)

    rtf. file

    Hi Michelle,

    Some documents when saved takes up space due to its components. For us to help you with your concern, we'd like to know if your rtf file has images on it.

    Meanwhile, if your rtf file has pure texts, we suggest that you follow the steps below to reduce the size of your rtf file:

    • Compose your rtf file in Microsoft Word.
    • Instead of saving, copy and paste your composition to WordPad. All the formatting is copied over too.
    • Save the document with WordPad, and you'll get a significantly smaller file.

    Let us know the results.

    pdf attachment on an email in outlook changes to .dat format

    I use Outlook on my Windows 10 laptop. In the past week, I have had 3 situations in which an email downloaded with a pdf attachment. After it downloaded and I had opened the attachment, the attachment format changed to .dat & now the attachments are useless.
    I have gotten other emails with pdf attachments during this same time period and they are just fine.

    I typically leave my outlook window open all the time and have it set up so that the default view is to show my unread emails (from two different email accounts). All 3 of the emails where the format of the attached file changed were listed at the top of
    the unread email list (they were the most recent unread email on that day).

    The format change seems to occur "overnight", i.e., all is well when I last use my laptop in the evening and then when I return the next morning, the attachment format changed.

    Any ideas on the cause and how to prevent this problem would be greatly appreciated.
