Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's possible in a couple of ways.  First, the setting for the stationery used for new messages is stored in the registry at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\(version)\Common\MailSettings\NewStationery where (version) is the version of Outlook (e.g. 9.0, 10.0, 11.0, etc.)  The value stored in this key is the name of the stationery in use without an extension.  You could change the value from code before creating a new message.  Second, you can read in any HTML file and apply it to the HTMLBody property of a new item.
