    Outlook Express email & photos (ver 6)

    Can I create a table in MS Word containing text, hyperlinks and photos that is the template for an email? The object is to email this to my friends and allow them to copy/paste to forward it to those who they select.

    Problem encountered to date: When recipient tries to forward by copy/paste to new message the photo is not available. Do I need to create the email in another format or save the photo as a specific file type?

    Can't help you with templates and Word sorry. Might be best if you posted your query in the Word group if you haven't already.

    A really easy way to send emails on that contain anything embedded is to save it onto your desktop then drag it over this great little utility called X-UNSENT you can download from http://lettermanstationery.tripod.com/ you must have VBS run files installed on your system though. This will clean it and restore it to original without disturbing any images or links. Another way to do the same thing without the X-UNSENT utility is to open Notepad then go to File and open your email. In between X-MSMail-Priority: Normal and X-Mailer insert the line X-Unsent: 1 then save.

    X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
    X-Unsent: 1
    X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000
    X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.00.2600.0000

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers, Darny

    THX. I would like to think that there is a simple solution using MS applications to get this to work. All I want to do is embed a photo that can be copied with the email and pasted to a new email, without the photo disappearing.

    THX for your thoughts

    Re: Outlook Express email & photos (ver 6)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> I am a little unclear as to the question, but I have certainly created a table in word, including photos and text, then simply copied and pasted it directly into an OE email message box without problem. Is the recipient trying to copy/paste to a new email rather than using the forwarding option? If so that could be the reason the photo is getting lost.

    Thank you for your interest in this problem!
    Yes, I want the recipient, should they so chose, to be able to copy/paste the email to a newly created email without loosing the picture. I know I can ask them to "forward" the email, but then there is an accumulation of history documented at the top of the newly created email each time it is forwarded. We are doing a local fund raiser and I am trying to structure this so that the original message can be forwarded to their contats with as little difficulty as possible an yet retain the photo and text in the original.
    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    tell them to trim the history before forwarding.

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> CJ, I think using the forwarding option is the easiest for your purpose, after hitting "forward" just block the history you mention and hit delete. Enter whatever new title in the Subject area, or make that generic so it applies to all who receive it. If you feel this is not an acceptable option, then maybe create it in Word and attach to the email. Personally I would use forwarding, its fast and reliable.
