Making emails default to send as plain text

To make emails default to plain text (instead of formatted html messages) in the Outlook client you can do the following.

Click the orange "File" tab in the top left hand corner. Click "Options" in the left hand panel.

Select "Mail" from the left hand navigation in this new window, and change the default format for composing messages (pictured). There are many more options in the "Editor Options..." dialogue to the right of this too.
