How to Stop Outlook From Capitalizing Every Line
Like Microsoft's other products, Microsoft Outlook has Auto Correct options. (Photodisc/Photodisc/Getty Images)

Microsoft Outlook was built with automatic formatting options that are applied to your e-mail message when you are composing it. Although Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2007 do not allow you to set an automatic formatting option for capitalising the first letter in every line, Outlook 2003 does. If this option is turned on in your version of Outlook 2003, you can turn it off by navigating to the appropriate menu.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Tools" menu in Outlook 2003 and select "Options."

  2. 2

    Click the "Spelling" tab and select "AutoCorrect Options."

  3. 3

    Clear the check in the box beside "Capitalize first letter of sentence." This might sound peculiar, but Outlook 2003 treats all of the letters that begin on a new line as the first letter in a sentence.
