Creating toolbar icons for new HTML email message

Using OL2003.

Is it possible to create toolbar buttons that toggle the following (in new
HTML message, using Word as editor):

Show BCC
Do not save message to sent items

I know that both of these settings are available under the options button,
but I use them often and it takes a few clicks to get to them.

Thanks

Help!

I've just migrated my Office 2003 onto a new computer. Now when I print HTML
email messages the usual header information (my account name, date, from, to,
sent, subject etc) doesn't appear any more. I know I can get round this by
converting HTML to plain text format, but this is a real pain in the **** and
also disrupts the formatting of the message.

Is this perchance connected to the installation of Internet Explorer v7 on
my new computer?

How can I get my headers back on printed HTML email messages?

Hi All,

I am trying to create 2 polls in the one email message (2 voting buttons for
1st poll, 2 voting buttons for the 2nd poll). I am hoping to be able to get
recipients to respond to both polls in the 1 email.

Does anyone know how to do this?

How do you create a button for the toolbar that brings up a new message
window to a particular person that already has certain things toggled (such
as for follow up).

Brian,

Saw you response about different e-mail folders. I can create a new folder
but can't seem to direct my e-mails to seperate folders they all clump
together under inbox. I created in new subfolder under inbox, How do I get
one of my e-mail messages sent there. Thanks,

You have two choices: one is to use a separate mail profile for each
Bellsouth address. This will give you truly distinct Inboxes in Outlook for
each address. The other is to create rules that will move mail sent to each
address to a separate folder. There is only one Inbox for this arrangement,
but the rules will separate out the messages.

In Outlook 2007, when you open an email that is in HTML format with an
attachment and want to save the email and attachment (specifically to a
network drive), you click on File, Save As (not Save Attachments), it
creates the email message as a HTML document, but there is no attachment in
that document. It also creates a new folder in the same network folder the
HTML document is in with the same name. The new folder contains 3 files,
colorschememapping, file list which show as XML document and a file themedata
which shows as Microsoft Office Theme.
Is there any way to change this so the email itself and the attachment are
saved together in one file?

Using Outlook 2007 -- New HTML email message open -- cursor inserted and blinking in message

When I click the 'Insert' tab, the only option available to me is the 'Picture'. Clip Art, Shapes, SmarArt, & Chart are grayed out andnot accessible. How can I insert clip art?

Also, if I insert a picture and have it selected, a formatting toolbar does not appear as it did in the previous version I had on my computer.How am I able to crop, rotate, edit the picture?

Do I have the full version?  Our tech person just recently installed this on my machine.

I appreciate any help -- thank you!

Hi,
Is any way to permanently change the text size for HTML format messages?
Whenever I open a HTML format message, I can change the text size from
medium to lager. However, I have to change the text size for every HTML
format message. Can I configure that the default text size is larger for
all HTML format messages? Or can I modify registry to change the default
text size?
Here is some information for the machine.

Thank you.

The following happens in outlook 2003:

When an email message that was sent as a html email as opposed to a plain
text email, it displays in my inbox as jibberish.

For example--I had a person send me the message "test" as the body. He sent
it as HTML email and it displays as:

IXFN.T8VMNSOVTDSOIVCVLLW1LLXNXVMNSOVOUVN4CB4_C_6BC9LL8O CIIRMNSOIM8XXININO8ISR44CLRLNINO8IIRS8NXVSCC4VR1C_FW6B CRBCVNF4RVN6BCRBCWCCRDCLSC59SVNSC44RCWC4VC4N__CIIRS8NXVN6BC RBCWCSIMNSOVIOUUOEOUUOWWMECVBC5RW_8O8WXNFWILM8XXIIRSFX.II VVV6BFR4CRTVO465VCRDCL49C_BVO645CCVVVIIRTI6FONV4__RWEISC5 9

However,if that same person sent me the message "test" as plain text as
opposed to html, then it displays correctly as "test".

Please help if possible. Thank you.

Hi there,

I have been tasked with creating HTML email to do a newsletter and sending
this out using Outlook 2007. I have the HTML created in Sharepoint Designer
2007 but how do I "import" this into an Outlook 2007 HTML email message
cleanly?

Is it possible to copy an email message into a calendar entry - to create a
new appointment from that email? I used to use Lotus Notes and it had a
function to copy the email message into a new calendar entry. So far I
haven't seen a way to do this in Outlook. Thanks!

When I look:ed at the source of an HTML email that was sent to me, it
started:
html
head

and ended

/div
/html

I have a simple html file that I use to post announcements on Craigslist,
and I'd like to use it in the body of an email and have it go out as an HTML
file. I sent it to myself as a test, and the message had the text
htm
head
This is the head
/head
/html

and when I view the source of that test mesage, this is the source:

!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"
HTMLHEAD
META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=us-ascii"
META content="MSHTML 6.00.2900.3354" name=GENERATOR/HEAD
BODY
DIVFONT size=2
P<html>/P
P<head>/P
PThis is the head/P
P</head></html>/P/FONT/DIV/BODY/HTML

No. I just want the message to say
This is the head.

So, how do I get send a message so that it gets transmitted as HTML, not
text?

I've tried various combinations of default message formats in the Options
dialog box, but none of them seem to matter. Is it somewhere else?

Hi,

Attempting to insert a picure into a new HTML email causes OE6 to
freeze. I click on the insert picture icon, the browse box pops up, I
click on the browse button and a box pops up for me to choose the
picture file I want to insert, but at that point OE 6 stops responding.
The only option is to click on CtrlAltDelete to bring up Windows Task
Manager to force OE6 to close.

I read in a web page somewhere, after doing a Google search, that
compacting files may help solve the problem of OE6 freezing when
attempting to insert a picture, but I have a problem there too. I click
on FileWork Offline and then FileFolderCompact All Folders but every
time I try this, and just before the compacting procedure is complete,
a box pops up telling me "The folder is being used by Outlook Express
or by another application." Clicking on either the OK or Cancel button
gets rid of the box and I can continue using OE6.

Can anyone help?

No icon, but if you don't already the shortcut button (which will take you
to the Outlook Today button), you can add it, then its just two clicks from
Tasks to Outlook Today:

Click the ">>" at bottom of the navigation pane and select "Add or Remove
buttons" and select Shortcuts. You'll never see your email folders.

I have Outlook 2010 (x32) with BCM 2010 (x32) running on Vista Home Premium SP1 (x32) with Comodo Internet Security (incl AV).

When I send a test HTML email to myself using the Mass E-mail feature of the BCM Marketing workspace, I receive it as plain text.

My Outlook client is not configured to convert emails to plain text (I receive numerous other HTML emails) and both my Outlook compose setting and the BCM Mass E-mail compose setting are set to compose in HTML. In fact, I actually see the HTML email in the compose window before I sends the test mass e-mail.

When I use the BCM New Items > Email Message menu option, which sends individual emails rather than mass e-mails, the email arrives coded in HTML, looking just as it was designed.

I am also able to send the same HTML email using plain Outlook and it also arrives coded in HTML just as designed. Obviously, I'm trying to send numerous emails (to a mailing list) so sending individual emails is not a viable option.

In all 3 tests above, I am using the same From: and To: addresses each time and I am also inserting the same HTML email into the body (using the Attach File > Insert as text option). The only variable is the use (or not) of the Mass E-mail feature of BCM.

Also, I have the same issue on a Windows 7 (x64), running Office 2010 Pro Plus (x64) and BCM 2010 (x64) with MSE as the antivirus.

Anyone have any idea what is causing HTML emails sent using the Outlook BCM Mass E-mail feature to be received in plain text? Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.

Scenario (this is Outlook 2010):  When communicating, I usually attached previous Outlook email message to a new email message - so the recepient can also open the outlook message that I want them to refer to. 

The problem:  After I sent the message (with the "attachment" as Outlook 2010 HTML email message) > I also send to myself > when I received in my inbox, open the message (it shows as HTML) >> however, when I double click on the attachment (the Outlook message that I attached in HTML format) > it came out as Plain Text (and not HTML).  Why?

I checked my "sent folder" - found the email I sent to myself, open it > message is in HTML, double click on the attachment >> the email message of this attachment is opened as HTML (not as plain text)

So I really have trouble to understand why the message I received (likely it will be the same if I sent to recepient) - when open the attachment email message, why would that be in "plain text" as opposed to "html" as it originally intended?

(P.S. I am using AVG 2010, but I don't have this issue with my Outlook 2003 on another system)

Many thanks.

I am having an issue when replying or forwarding HTML email messages
from my Outlook Web Access. whenever I hit the reply or forward, all I
get is a bunch of links. The messages gets fine to me. The issue is
only when i try to reply or forward that message from OWA. It's even
worst with my outside MS Outlook 2000 POP users who cannot see incoming
email in HTML format. Again they only see a bunch of links and the same
if they try to reply and forward. MS Outlook 2000 Exchange Client users
in the office who connect directly to the server and are not poping,
don't have any problem seing, replying or forwarding HTML email
messages. Outside Outlook Express users who POP to the server also
don't have any problems. I have checked all the settings in MS Outlook
and even if I allow and put the security settings to the minimum, it
still doesn't work. I suspect there is some setting in the Exchange
server configruation that got changed when I installed AVG 7.0 for
exchange servers. The other reason why I think it is at the server
level is because of the fact that replying or forwarding from OWA
doesn't format the message to HTML. I sent an email to Grisoft, but
they haven't offered much help. I appreciate any advise you can give me
with this issue.

Up until a week ago, I was able to cut and paste an HTML email message to an
outgoing email message. Last night, I attempted to do this for 3 hours, and
all I saw was the little "paste" logo, but no image. No settings have been
changed. I even cut off my email filter, and still could not do it. Does
anyone have any ideas? I use XP SP2, with the Zone Alarm Security suite as
my firewall and protection. I do use Outlook 2003. Thanks in advance. Jeff
