That was it, thanks.

I'll add another 100 points if you answer this one:

I want to send this as an email. If I just say:

MAPIMessages1.MsgNoteText = WebBrowser1.Document.documentElement.outerhtml

The message body looks like this in Outlook when it is recieved:

<HTML><HEAD><TITLE></TITLE>
<STYLE type=text/css>
     <!--Set the link colors-->
     <!-- BODY

.... Etc.

How can I have to so when they open the email they get the formated HTML page instead of the HTML itself.

Thanks,
Bryan

I hope bobbit answered the second part of your question...all it sounded like was that it was not treating the email as a formatted html message.  Since I dont use Outlook, I dont know if thats a setting you must set to tell it to treat a message as being html formatted.

It must be a setting as I just get the HTML code and not the formatted text in my email.
