Sorry this makes no sense to me. The area you show as Outlook doesn't resemble mine. I am not terribly techie,but do well with instructions. Perhaps u didn't put an action, assuming everyone knew. I'm at a loss. I got a phishing email that is a scam, wanted to send it to wal mart, but was told by wal mart NOT to forward it, I should attach to an email. Well, that's where the ignorance, on my part, started. Happens to me cause I'm not as savvy on some uncommon actions. But many instructions don't come down to my level or beginners who need help when giving instructions for help with actions we need to do, but don't know how. Frustrating. OK, I risked looking like an idiot, but wanted message to go thru. Thank You.

Hi deborah ariscy,
Sorry for the inconvinience. There may be some differences in the interface in different versions of Outlook. Can you tell me the Outlook version you are using now? You can click File > Office Account > About Outlook to find the version.
