Embedding a YouTube video into an Outlook Express E-mail is that possible?

Is it possible to embed a YouTube video into a Outlook Express e-mail?
If not, is there a workaround?

1. Upload the video to some hosting space. Obtain the URL to the video.
2. Create a HTML page using a HTML editor and insert the video. You can use the OBJECT clause to insert video that will be played by Internet Explorer and the EMBED clause to insert video that will be played by Firefox and others.
3. In Outlook, Click New (Toolbar icon) -> Select Stationery
4. Select your HTML file and you are all set.

Sometimes the script may get blocked by the recipiant's server.. It is better to send the URL instead of Embedding into outlook.

Not in OUtlook Express, it does not support inserting html.  You can however send it as an attachment or send a link in the email.

Now Thurnderbird will work, and I'm not sure about Windows Mail, but I can check for you if you like.
