  • Click on the Mail Format tab at the top

In the top portion of the window you will have selections on how to set your e-mail editing options:

You can set the "Compose in this message format:" to either html or rich text.

Put a checkmark next to both options to Use Microsoft Office Word as your editor.

Click on Okay to close that window.
