Hi @ArnoldMIshaev-9439,
How did you want to set the Right to Left setting in Word and Outlook?
As far as I know, you can install the specific language to keep Office type text from Right to Left:

Or you need to set the paragraph align settings, you can try to set the Word normal.dotm settings and check if it will help you.

You can try to be a bit more precise to explain your requirement so that I can get more accurate solutions to this problem. I’m glad to help and follow up your reply.

The final result has to be like that.
when user open new email and goes down to write content, by default text direction has to be from Right-To-Left

Hi,
As I said you need to change the Normal.dotm settings for each user. You need to go to this location:

 C:\Users\<User Nmae>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

Open the Normal.dotm file and change the Paragraph Align settings to Right:

Hi @ArnoldMIshaev-9439,
I try to contact Outlook Team and it seems that the default email text settings cannot be changed.
