If you're interested in creating indented lists of items in your messages you can use the List or List= BBcodes (Bulletin Board codes).

Here's how is goes. Let's say you want to create a list of 3 items. You could simply type it in like I did here - but notice that they are not indented.

1. Milk
2. Sugar
3. Cookies

To get them indented, first replace the numbers with these characters: [*]

So now you have:

[*] Milk
[*] Sugar
[*] Cookies

Next, highlight and wrap the entire three items in the List BBCode or the List= BBcode. You'll find the list of BBcodes in those boxes right under the Subject line in the editor.

Wrapping the items in the List BBcode will create bullets like this:

  • Milk
  • Sugar
  • Cookies


Wrapping the items in the List=1 BBcode will create a numbered list like this:

  1. Milk
  2. Sugar
  3. Cookies


Wrapping the items in the List=a BBcode will create a lettered list like this:

  1. Milk
  2. Sugar
  3. Cookies


You can even embed List BBcodes:

  1. Milk
  2. Sugar
  3. Cookies
    1. Chocolate chip
    2. Vanilla
