    HTML mail (2000)

    The only method that works for me is to create the HTML in another application and then paste it into Outlook.

    This works when you send to another destiny that also has Outlook.

    When your you send to another mail like Hotmail or Yahoo, this does not work. These show the space in blank and puts the images like attachment.

    More ideas?

    TIA

    you can create the html in outlook, but it only has limited html editing capabilites. or fancy things, save the page created elsewhere and use as stationery.

    on one of the menus there is an option to send from the internet, i think you want that for the images.

    also, on another forum there was a discussion about images in hotmail, some displayed and some didn't. Once the fur stopped flying over whose fault it was (Outlook or photoshop) the consensus seemed to be that images saved using photoshop were the problem and resaving the images with paint or paint shop pro fixed it. outlook was adding the pictures as a an application content type, not image content and browsers will not display the application type for security reasons,

    I haven't found a way to create tables. What I do is create a separate HTML file (e.g., in Notepad), then create a blank HTML message, then use Insert File, but choose Insert as Text to embed the HTML file into the message source.

    People have said that if you want to create something fancy, do it in your HTML editor (e.g., FrontPage) and then make it Outlook stationery. You then can create a new message using that stationery. If you search the Lounge there will be further suggestions on this.

    Or...you could use Outlook Express and send it to yourself. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Have you configured Outlook to send mail as HTML. From your description it sounds as though you may be sending Microsoft Rich Text format.
