I run Outlook Express version 6.0 with Windows 2000 Professional.

Although I use the HTML format to send messages as I have checked "HTML" in the "Send" tab,"Font, Style, Paragraph" are grayed in "Format". I cannot use Italics or Bold letters.
Can you help?
Thank you,
Daniel Bessis

I don't have that problem, and I have the same settings (on 98SE).  Have you tried a Repair on IE? (Start-Settings-Control Panel-Add/Remove-IE-Repair)

Repair on IE did not change anything. Are IE and Outlook Express connected?
I noticed that when I was using Outlook Express version 5, I did not had the problem: it came after upgrading to version 6. I have the same problem on a different computer AFTER upgrading to version 6.
Does this help?

Yes.  If you have IE5.5, you have OE5.5 (and 6 and so on).
I upgraded my system from IE5.5 to IE6.  I don't really use email formatting because it generally won't carry over to a different client (Eudora, Web based packages, etc).  I have this functionality in mine even though it is not used.  Are you sure it is set to HTML for EMAIL?

Kind if a dumb question, but is your cursor in the body of the message itself?  The reason I ask is that when you initially open a new email the cursor is in the TO line and the formatting options are greyed out.  However, once you move the cursor to the body of the text they are active.
