    To make Outlook 2000 use HTML, go to Tools->Options->Mail Format and in the "Send this message format" listbox, choose HTML.

    But if you use cursor trails, it'll not only bog down your and the recieving end's mail server because the script is quite large, but it will also only work with Outlook and IE5.

    <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
    <meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
    <title>New Page 1</title>
    <style>
    .spanstyle {
    position:absolute;
    visibility:visible;
    top:-50px;
    font-size:10pt;
    font-family:Verdana;
    font-weight:bold;
    color:red;
    }
    </style>
    <script>

    var x,y
    var step=20
    var flag=0

    // Your snappy message. Important: the space at the end of the sentence!!!
    var message="Your-town.com "
    message=message.split("")

    var xpos=new Array()
    for (i=0;i<=message.length-1;i++) {
    xpos[i]=-50
    }

    var ypos=new Array()
    for (i=0;i<=message.length-1;i++) {
    ypos[i]=-50
    }

    function handlerMM(e){
    x = (document.layers) ? e.pageX : document.body.scrollLeft+event.clientX
    y = (document.layers) ? e.pageY : document.body.scrollTop+event.clientY
    flag=1
    }

    function makesnake() {
    if (flag==1 && document.all) {
    for (i=message.length-1; i>=1; i--) {
    xpos[i]=xpos[i-1]+step
    ypos[i]=ypos[i-1]
    }
    xpos[0]=x+step
    ypos[0]=y

    for (i=0; i<message.length-1; i++) {
    var thisspan = eval("span"+(i)+".style")
    thisspan.posLeft=xpos[i]
    thisspan.posTop=ypos[i]
    }
    }

    else if (flag==1 && document.layers) {
    for (i=message.length-1; i>=1; i--) {
    xpos[i]=xpos[i-1]+step
    ypos[i]=ypos[i-1]
    }
    xpos[0]=x+step
    ypos[0]=y

    for (i=0; i<message.length-1; i++) {
    var thisspan = eval("document.span"+i)
    thisspan.left=xpos[i]
    thisspan.top=ypos[i]
    }
    }
    var timer=setTimeout("makesnake()",30)
    }

    </script>
    </head>

    <body onLoad="makesnake()" style="width:100%;overflow-x:hidden;overflow-y:scroll">
    <script>
    <!-- Beginning of JavaScript -

    for (i=0;i<=message.length-1;i++) {
    document.write("<span id='span"+i+"' class='spanstyle'>")
    document.write(message[i])
    document.write("</span>")
    }

    if (document.layers){
    document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEMOVE);
    }
    document.onmousemove = handlerMM;

    // - End of JavaScript - -->
    </script>

    </body>

    Load the webpage in Internet Explorer. Go to the File menu. Select Send and choose Page by Email. If your Outlook is setup to send HTML the entire page will be pasted into a new message for you. Then you can save it as a template, mail it or whatever.

    Check Outlook help for information how to edit the HTML of a html email message. I know this is possible because Microsoft uses HTML templates and it'd be idiotic for them to forget or not include source editing.

    ...or use pine

    Go to Outlook -> Tools -> Options -> Mail Format and make sure it has HTML instead of Microsoft Outlook Rich Text or Plain Text selected. If you use stationary then you can set up an HTML email. At worst, save the page as HTML in your stationary folder and select it as your stationary.
