    Question HTML email with Outlook

    My goal is to compose an e-mail with my HTML editor and send it with Outlook. (If I can't use Outlook, what CAN I use?) I've searched high and low and have not been able to figure it out. I have Outlook configured to send mail in HTML format, but when I type or paste HTML and send it to my other e-mail address, I get the uninterpreted code. When I try "Insert File" it just attaches it. I get cool-looking HTML formatted messages everyday. I've been writing HTML for years. It's killing me that I can't figure this out. Help! Please?

    out of curiosity, try this in your meta tags:
    Code:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

    RE: Try this

    Outlook still just displays the uninterpreted text. Is this easier to do in a different e-mail editor? All those people that send me nice, html-formatted newsletters everyday ... what are they using?

    When pasting your site in Outlook remeber to only paste the part between <body> </body>, not the stuff inside the <head> tags.
    Also check out this thread.

    That fixes it!

    I still can't do it in Outlook, but now know how to do it in Outlook Express. I'm content with that. Thanks! I apologize for accidentally making a new post about something that already had it's own thread. I checked before I posted and didn't see anything. My bad. Thanks again.

    I've had luck w/ Outlook using an html editor. Instead of copying the code, try viewing the preview of the html page(if your editor supports this) then copy and paste that.
