I know this is already here somewhere, but I can't find it.  I am trying to compose a weekly and long HTML newsletter.  I have the code written, but when I go to my message, view source, paste the code and close - my html code is no where to be found.  What is the correct way to embed the html code in my message (I want the receipient to see the entire document - pictures and all)?  While I'm at it - what is the proper way to imbed images so that I don't have to post the images to a web server somewhere?   Thanks for the help!

When you view source, it is written to a temp file which is not editable

You would have to:
1) Develop your code in FrontPage for example and use Send by mail feature
2) write a macro which replaces the html message body by your html ( goto www.slipstick.com for a working example: http://www.slipstick.com/mail1/html.htm)

If you have embedded images not published to a web server, their reference are pointing to your disk. In the new mail, select each image, then Insert/ Picture and browse your disk and select the image currently displayed (quite weird, isn it): doing so, outlook will embed the images as mime type instead of links.
Send the mail to yoursel first : open it and use Actions/ Resend this mail to your recipients
