    Send webpage issue (Outlook2000/WinMe)

    If I am online and want to send a webpage, I can "send page by email." This shows the webpage in the email. However, when I do the same for a webpage I created and have on my hard drive, it just sends an attachment. My default email setting is HTML.

    Is there a fix to this? If not, how do I embed an html file in the email body?

    Thanks.

    Two possibilities that I know of (other than running your own web server on your computer):
    [list=1]<LI>Copy the HTML page to your Stationery folder and use Actions > Mail Message Using > More Stationery... to create the message. This has a good degree of fidelity to the original, but probably not perfect. Your stationery folder will be under Application

    Thanks. FYI, I found this online. http://www.slipstick.com/mail1/html.htm

    In Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 197092, they state, "NOTE: These procedures only work if you are browsing the Web page. If you open a page from your hard drive, you can only send it as an attachment." Do you know why it's not possible to send from your hard drive?

    I was able to do it from work. Is it because they're on a server?

    I have no idea why MS set it up this way. As for work, you were able to send a page from your hard drive or from "the intranet"? If it opened as a file (e.g., f:blahblah or servershareblah), then it's a miracle... or maybe an add-in of some sort. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    P.S. If you put <!t><!/t> and <!t><!/t> around your URL, it becomes a clickable link. (You can edit your post to do this.)
