    Sending HTML Forms (6.0)

    I am trying to book a filght, and when I try and send the dates of travel in a pre-designed form from the vendor's website (Priceline.com), I get an error message stating my security settings won't allow me to send HTML forms. How do I change this?
    Thanks in advance.

    Check to see if OE Options>Send>sending format is checked at HTML or plain text. Check HTML.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob is assuming your mail program is Outlook Express, and that the issue is an OE security setting. If not Outlook Express, what is your default mail application (according to Internet Explorer's Programs tab)?

    In that case, when you create a new mail message, click on Format (on the toolbar) and make sure HTML is ticked.


    Alternatively, to have HTML as default, go to Tools>Options>Mail Formatand select HTML from the drop down list next to 'Send in this message format'

    Can you post a link so I can try this out? I'd like to test whether I get the same error.

    Re: Sending HTML Forms (6.0)

    Hmmm... I went to the home page at http://www.priceline.com/, filled in travel cities and dates, and chose File>Send>Page by email. It was attached to an Outlook 2003 message and sent without incident. I clicked Next to pull up a page of flights. This page also attached to an email.

    Are these the pages that don't work for you, or can you be more specific about where the problem lies?

    (My default format is plain text, so I don't think the mail format needs to be changed to HTML to do this.)

    Nope-that's it! After I changed my settings, it works fine!

    For future reference by others finding this thread, what did you change your settings to so that it worked?

    Oops, sorry! In Outlook, Tools, Options, Mail Format, Message Format, Send messages in HTML

    Re: Sending HTML Forms (6.0)

    Plese, may I intrude into this post.. For those using Outlook Express the selections are different.. Follow this method if using OE.

    Tools>Options>Send tab>Mail Format>Message Format. Check HTML and HTML Settings. For MIME message format, I have checked:

    Allow 8-bit character in readers
    Send pictures with messages
    Indent messages on reply.

    Perhaps this will help users of Outlook Express 6.
