I am usng a VB script to create an Outlook email taking the message body from an open Word Document..

the current code is..

    With oItem
        .Subject = mysubject

Hi, chrisfixit.

This should do it.

    .HTMLBody = "<p>" & Source.Sections(j).Range.Text & "</p>"

Also, be sure to set the body format to HTML.  

    .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
