How to Change a Message's Priority in Windows Mail or Outlook Express

By

I'm sure some of the emails you write in Windows Mail or Outlook Express are very important. There is a way to let the recipient know: you can assign a message priority to the messages you compose in Windows Mail or Outlook Express. Of course this also works for messages that have low priority.

Change a Message's Priority in Windows Mail or Outlook Express

To set the priority of a message you compose in Windows Mail or Outlook Express:

  • Use the Set Priority toolbar button.
    • It shows an arrow pointing down and an exclamation mark.
  • Clicking the button itself will toggle between normal, high and low priority.
    • Alternatively, use the button's drop-down menu.
    • Select from it High, Normal or Low Priority.

If you prefer the menu or do not have the button in your toolbar, select Message | Set Priority from the Windows Mail or Outlook Express message composition window menu and then your desired message priority.
