    Sending out html file as body of email (Outlook 2003/Office 2002)

    I have cobbled together an html file (see attached) that my management would like to send out as an email to a certain select group of individuals. I need to find out how to use this html file as the body of the email. I receive numerous examples of these in my Inbox every day but can't figure out how they do it.

    I point out that I am using Outlook 2003 with Office 2002. The reason I point this out is that this mix prohibits me from being able to use Word as my email editor. I don't really mind that as I find that Word dumps too much MS junk into any html document. I prefer to use either Homesite 5 or nVu.

    Any suggestions?

    Can't you set the e-mail type to HTML and use the Outlook formatting options to compose the e-mail the way you wish?

    Copy the HTML file to the Stationery folder

    Cocuments and Settings<username>Application DataMicrosoftStationery

    Note: the Application Data folder is hidden, so you need to display hidden files and folders to see it.

    In Outlook, select Actions | New Message Using | More Stationery...
    Select the HTML file (NAFPA_Email) from the list and click OK.

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for the response. Yes I can do that but it is a little harder since I don't have all the bells and whistles that you get in html (or even Word for that matter). I just figured that since I had to create the html version anyway to ost on our website for those that don't/can't accept html formatted emails.

    Thanks again for you assistance. Since it is Friday, here is a cold one for you!
