Hello,

I feel really stupid asking about this since I even built my own computer, but here it goes..

I'm trying to send html email with microsoft outlook (using legit office 2k3). I can receive emails with full html, backgrounds, images etc.

When I send html format emails, they come up just the same as rich text. I make sure that it says 'html' at the top when i'm sending it as the type of format, but it doesn't matter - it isn't working.

Even something as basic as (using *'s instead of arrows)

*html*
*img src="www.notarealsite.com/test123.jpg"*
*/html*

no matter what i do, it comes up as normal text. I've searched through countless settings and i don't know what to do now.

Re:

Hello,

It is not possible to code in HTML using Microsoft Outlook 2003.

Although you can have the message written and sent as HTML by the text editor, you cannot manually embed HTML code by typing it in. Instead, the text you type...

<html>

</html>

...Won't be recognised as already coded HTML, but will be coded from Rich Text Format into HTML, so it will simply appear as text:

<html>
<font>
<img src="www.notarealsite.com/test123.jpg">
</font>
</html>

You can however, use Outlook Express to code in HTML using Source Edit...
