    Formatting in HTML (XP Prof 2003)

    I decided to stop using Word as my email editor as it was "helping" me. I have changed to HTML because it is supposed to allow me to format bullets, fonts etc. For example, I want to be able to change the bullet style - have it against the margin and with spaces between. I click on Format; Style; Bulleted list but that just allows me to use the list.

    I'm sure I'm missing something simple - I've searched here and googled but I can't seem to find how to do this.

    I'd be grateful for any help.

    Thank you in advance

    If you really need things like that, you'd better switch back to Word as mail editor. The built-in editor in Outlook is limited.

    If you want to have a consistent format that differs from the standard Outlook HTML stationery, you can create your own stationery. Probably easiest to do this in a competent HTML editor than by hand, although some hand-tuning might be needed.

    If you want to change formatting on a more ad hoc basis, such as in a reply, then the stationery approach probably won't work very well (it could wreck the formatting of earlier messages in the thread).

    VBA offers a limited ability to rewrite the underlying HTML in a message. For example, we had a thread with a macro to "un-indent" replies, which required poking around in a number of messages to figure out what HTML to change. Styling lists might be a bit easier, but would take some time to develop.

    Thank you both for your responses. A little more work required on my part I think.
