Creating HTML Templates in Outlook 2000. Can it be done?

  1. Here's the problem: I'm trying to create a HTML template in Outlook 2000. Now to do this I have to unselect Word as the editing tool and go with Outlook's editor. When I paste the HTML document (from Word) into the editor everything looks fine (more or less), the graphics are all in place and the text is the same as the original (Word document). I then go to 'Publish Form As..' and save the document in the relevant folder.

    All well and good, that is, until I select the form and it comes out as pure text with no graphics at all.

    I've made sure that the message is set to HTML in Options but it still insists that the template is pure text.

    Any ideas?

    not sure ,if your saving as a email draft you don't want to rename it as .html
    I use mazilla and send html all the time
    the email app saves the file under its own type of file.
    so not sure what you are trying to do
    PS have you got all the patches for the security leaks in

    What's Mazilla? Did you mean Mozilla?

    I'm saving it as an .oft not an HTML.
