I'm using Outlook 2007 and would like to create a stationary file with a radio button.  For example,  when the recipient recieves this file, they can check one of the radio buttons and choose "Reply".  When I recieve the reply, I can view which radio button they chose.

Is this possible?

    Hi, Don.

    That's not possible.  Outlook 2007 does not support HTML forms.

    Is there a program I could use that could create and send this and allow others using Outlook Express or Outlook to view, choose a radio button and reply?

    I never use Outlook Express, so I don't know anything about its capabilities.  It is Outlook in name only.  Outlook versions prior to 2007 did support HTML forms.  However, I don't remember forms working the way you've described even with them.  As I remember it, you'd fill the form out and then click a button to submit the data to a web site.  I don't think the data entered in the form came back in the message.  If any of the intended recipients have Outlook 2007, then there is no solution.  It simply does not support HTML forms.  You're best bet would be to create a web page for the form and send out a link to it.
