how to change the graphical layout of your emails in the Microsoft Outlook

Sometimes, you may want to format your email messages with an unusual background or style, particularly if the message is for informal, rather than business purposes. Microsoft® OutlookSM includes predefined templates to enhance the look of your email messages. If you find an email with a white background boring, follow the instructions below to learn how to change the graphical layout of your emails in the Microsoft® OutlookSM application.


  1. Launch the Microsoft® OutlookSM 2010 application.
  2. Switch to the “File” tab and choose the “Options” item.
  3. In the left pane, choose the “Mail” option. Locate the section with the “Signatures…” option near the middle of the window and click on it.
  4. Switch to the “Personal Stationery” tab.
  1. Click on the “Theme” button.
  2. In the new window, choose the theme and click on the “OK” button.
  3. You can modify the chosen theme in the “Signatures and Stationery” window. Click on the “OK” button to save and close the window.
  4. Click on the “OK” button to save and close the Microsoft® OutlookSM 2010 options.


  • Themes are not recommended for formal emails such as business correspondence. For these purposes, it may be best to stick with the traditional white background format.
