HTML in Outlook Express

  bamfiesler 17:46 29 Apr 2005

Been trying to embedd an html link permanently in my outgoing OE mail. I can do it if I save it as 'Stationery', but the font then gets changed to Sans Serif, or somesuch, and I don't want this as I use Haettenschweiler.

The only wasy I can see just now is to paste the link in on the source page of the mail every time, but that's a real bind, and most of the time I forget to do it anyway.

Any ideas?

Thanx to all, etc.

I've had a look at Outlook Express's options (long time since I used it!)

On the Compose tab, it states that Stationery fonts will be used, but when I ran the Stationery Wizard, it showed a full list of fonts. In other words, it should work just fine. Try the wizard again, select your font fron the drop-down on the second page of the wizard, and see if it works.

...and make sure that the font doesn't magically return to the default when you have typed the hyperlink. When creating a hyperlink in an Office program, it tends to magically take on the default font, size and colour. You then have to right-click the hyperlink to change its properties.

Either I'm daft or.............

If I create stationery, save it and then edit it, it opens up in Word. If I then thry and put html tags in, the come out of the preview/edit page of OE, and that's not what I want. I cant' figure this out, cos there's other html stuff in the current background source!
