HTML email

I would like to know how to be able to convert an html file into email - I have tried pasting the code into the body of an MS outlook message and tried changing the formatting etc. and it doesn't work.  All that shows up is the code (no formatting, no graphics, nada) and I've tried a few different ways of sending them.

The html file I have is ready to go in that the graphics have absolute links.

I would ideally like to use Outlook to do this but if there's another program that works better for this I'm all ears...

Try inserting the file as text (Open a new piece of e-mail, go to Insert > File and choose the Insert as Text option) in the dialog. See if that helps any...

Hi Vince,

I don't show an "Insert as text" option in Outlook for files.  It will only let me insert any file as an attachment or an "item" where I can insert things (e.g.- other emails) that are only within my outlook folders as text.

(btw-I'm using Outlook 2000)

Click the little arrow on the Insert button in the file insertion dialog to see the "Insert as text" option
