How to create REAL HTML e-mails in Outlook 2000 ?

I figured out that if I create an .htm file then open a new email & say "Insert as Text", it embeds the HTML.  Almost perfectly...

Except the fact that it ignores my <BODY BGCOLOR> and LINK, VLINK, and ACTIVE colors.  How can I get around this?

Thanks.

If you wish to have inline css styles and body settings come through, you will have to set the HTML file up to be used as stationery.

How to:
* Create your HTML file
* Store in \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Stationery
* When you want to use it, Actions | New Message Using | More Stationery | Name of HTML document
