Customize actions on your messages in

You can choose which actions will appear on the surface of your messages when you select a message to read, as well as those that will appear on the message toolbar when you’re composing a message. You can add many actions, or just a few.

Some actions are selected by default, but you can clear them if you prefer.

Choose your version for instructions

The instructions are slightly different depending on whether you're using the beta. Choose which version of you're using to see the troubleshooting steps that apply to you.
