    NTML Not Displaying Properly (2007)

    I'm TRYING to set up a piece of stationery.

    In Word it looks fine. In IE it looks fine.

    In Outlook, when I use it, it changes the font on the footer.

    In Code, y0ou'll see a couple wrong attempts to get the font to stick -- Comic Sans 12 -- but it won't.

    What the heck am I -- or Outlook -- doing wrong here?

    The attached has a txt extension so that the board would upload it. Change that to htm, and it's OK.

    Flustered,
    Chuck Billow

    It appears that you can not create a stationary or themes from scratch. Try following the steps in Customize Word themes to use as stationery for messages - Outlook - Microsoft Office Online. The way I read this article is that you need to customize an existing them from a blank new HTM e-mail.

    Joe:

    Maybe (don't snicker!) I'm blind, dumb or both, but, on the link you gave me, it says:

    # On the Options tab, in the Themes group, click Colors.
    # Click Create New Theme Colors.

    I can't find any Options Tab. Themes is on my Page Layout Tab. And it wasn't really clear beyond that either.

    I was able to tweak a Word document so it works, but it certainly seems to me that what used to be a pretty straightforward process is now, to quote Churchill, "It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma."

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Start a new HTML e-mail. You should see the Options tab.

    They have certainly mucked up a perfectly fine method (2003)!

    You first make the theme, then use that theme, if you wan it as the "default" then you save it in message format, then you find that and move it to the Word/Outlook stationery folder...and that's leaving it at some 25k!

    I have yet tried opening it then in Word and re-saving it filtered...I had to take a break, 'cause all the steps wore me out!

    Thanks though Joe, 'cause it DID work.

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Joe:

    Yes, you can then open it in Word and save it as filtered HTML... I've lost count, how many steps are we up to?
