How do I create a custom vote in Outlook 2010?
Begin by creating a new E-mail message. When the Untitled Message window opens, select the Options tab and then click on the Use Voting Buttons button.

To add custom voting buttons in your email messages in Microsoft Outlook, please do as following:
- Create a new email message with clicking Home > New Email.
- In the new Message window, go to the Options tab, and click the Use Voting Buttons > Custom.
Firstly, the voting feature requires the rtf (rich text format) message format. So if the recipients receive messages in other formats like html or plain text, they will not see the voting option.
What are the two types of Outlook rules?
There are two types of rules in Outlook —server-based and client-only.
- Server-based rules. When you’re using a Microsoft Exchange Server account, some rules are server-based.
- Client-only rules. Client-only rules are rules that run only on your computer.

Outlook’s voting buttons provide a simple and easy way to poll people if they’re all in your Outlook contacts. When you compose a new email in Outlook, switch over to the “Options” tab and click the “Use Voting Buttons ” drop-down menu. When you receive the response, it will contain a message telling you how they voted.
Everything works fine internally but external Outlook recipients do not see the voting buttons.
