Okay, so maybe I am dumb, but I can't seem to find any information on how to show the ruler when you are composing a message so that you can set tabs, change margins, etc. I can't even find this in the help section -- the only thing I find is about forms. Is it possible to bring the ruler down and keep it there (like I have on my PC w/Outlook 2002).
Your help is greatly appreciated!
you're not dumb.
The draft mail window in Entourage does not have a ruler or tab stops.
If you want that fine a control over positioning, write your email in
word and use the 'send to > Mail recipient (as HTML)' under the file
However, you should be aware that no matter how careful you are in your
layout and formatting, what the user sees will depend on their client
settings, not on your formatting. Far better to stick to plain text mail
and rely on the content to make your point, rather than the presentation

Goodness - all that just for an email message? You realize pretty
formatting is best reserved for documents and web pages, right? There's
no guarantee the way you format HTML messages will be the way they
render on someone else's screen, and by making them HTML you take away
any choice the reader had of viewing your messages in their own
preferred font face, size, and style.
