I am creating an HTML email campaign, and have created the advert page in Dreamweaver. To send this out as an email I need to know how to get it into a new message in Outlook 2003 without opening the HTML file in Microsoft Word. Because when you go through word it adds lots of useless code that takes the file size up unecessarily. If anyone can help me in finding out how to do this It would be much appreciated.

The best way to do this with Outlook is to use Stationary.

First, click Tools -> Options -> Mail Format

You can select one of the pre-existing stationary samples from the 'Use this stationary by default' list of Stationary included with Outlook (if you want to use it as a default for all messages).  If you want to use your own Stationary, click the 'Stationary Picker' button to open the Stationary Picker window.

Once you've done this, you can download more Stationary from the MS Office website by clicking the 'Get More Stationary' button.  Or you can add your own stationary by clicking 'New'.  This will open the Create New Stationary Window.  Enter a name for your stationary, select the 'Use this file as a template' radio button and browse to the html file you want to use as your stationary (this is the page you created in Dreamweaver).

Click 'Next'.

Select the font and style you want to use with that stationary and a background color or picture to use (if any).

Click 'OK'.

Your Stationary will appear on the list along with the pre-existing Office stationary.  You can now select it as your default Stationary.  If you want to use it with a specific message (or messages) rather than as a default, open a new message, select Options -> Stationary -> Theme and select the desired Stationary from the list of Stationary and Themes.  Unfortunately, that stationary doesn't pop up in the exising message window, but will in subsequent new message windows (until you turn the theme off - kind of like it would if you set it as a default as above).  I think there must be a way to just switch on the stationary for an individual message without having to close the message and open a new one or having to switch it off once you've sent that message, but I'm not sure what it is.
