    Outlook 2007 and HTML (2007)

    I've seen a lot of press recently on major rendering issues Outlook is now having with HTML mail since it ditched the "old" e-mail display and went with Word as it's core.

    Is this true? Are you better off, if you do get a lot of HTML mail, to stick with 2003?

    Unless you have a specific reason to adopt Office 2007 or any application in Office 2007 -- e.g., feature you must have -- you might want to wait out the first service pack. There are always headaches after the initial release, and functionality improvements in the first update.

    Jefferson:

    I read today that they are talking about another version in the next 18-24 months.

    Unless, as you say, there are specific reasons, I'm half-tempted to wait for "round 2".

    There is not reason to believe that with Office 14 that the HTML e-mail rendering method will be changed. If you believe what the Office developer folk at MS say, most e-mail will be fine with Outlook 2007 as basic HTML rendering is fine. It just lacks some of the advanced features found in browsers. I wouldn't let the Outlook rendering engine be the determining factor for decide whether or not to use Office 2007.

    True enough. Right now, I use iHateSpam as for filtering, primarily because I am used to it I suppose, but also because it allows import of all addresses in the Sent items and the Contacts, and then allows you to set it so that any NOT listed as "friends" will be treated as spam. Not perfect, but in my circumstance it works pretty well.

    I don't think that iHateSpam works with 2007, so is there a way to replicate this type of filtering in Outlook alone or some other product that adds on?

    You need to wait a while and it will get updated so it will work with Outlook 2007.

    Did someone decide to skip Office 13? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Well Dave,

    The Windows Vista (Beta) isn't going to be an issue for (at least) 2-3 years (for me at least), and I "spose" I can wait out the Outlook transition as well...

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Yep. Someone at Microsoft decided 13 is unlucky.

    Yes, you can replicate that behavior with Outlook 2007 and I think with Outlook 2003.

    My copy of Office 2007 lists it as version 12, where did 13 and 14 come from?

    See BetaNews | Microsoft Not Discussing Windows 7, Office 14. Just less than useless speculation by the media that does not have Vista & Office 2007 to kick around any more for being late.

    Joe:

    Yes, there appears to be settings for "add all my Contacts" and "any I send to", and an import (text file), but I see no "instructions", and I exported my (already) Sent Items to text, and it didn't like that at all for import.

    Would I then have to (just) start from scratch on my sent list, and it would add them as I go?

    Too bad there's no import of the Contacts and Sent e-mail addresses, and then...

    This is from the Outlook 2007 Help:

    "If you have existing lists of e-mail addresses that you want the Junk E-mail Filter to use for evaluating incoming e-mail messages, you can import those lists into Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 by saving them in the plain text (.txt) file format in files that have one entry per line, and then importing the text files into Outlook"

    There is no need to import the Contacts if you check the box that says "Also trust e-mail from my Contacts". Then, e-mail from your Contacts will automatically be trusted (i.e. not spam). If you want to import you sent e-mail addresses you need to format the file per the above quote.
