Posted on 2004-11-19

When I try to add the default text animations by highlighting word(s) in an email, then Rt. clicking on it, choosing Fonts and then text effects.

I can see the effects before I send it but when a someone opens it (Even if I send it to myself) the effects are not there.

Any thing I am missing here? Or is this a bug?

    What version of outlook ?
    First make sure your OL is fully updated

    The reason you are able to do text effects is because you are using Word as the default email editor. Well that is not the problem. Can you check what format you are sending the email.
    Click new from the inbox to compose a new message and change the format of the email to RICH TEXT
    now do text effects and send it to yourself.

    Once you receive , open the email in a new window and see if the text effects get retained.
