      Good morning, everyone!

      I'm now on beta 3, where File|Send has indeed stopped freezing, but I
      still have a problem with the interaction between NTP and OE 5.

      I'd like to be able to make up an ordinary HTML page in NTP, send it
      to OE, and have OE send it as an email properly formatted in HTML.
      This used to work through File|Send in Windows 95 using Netscape 4 as
      my MAPI client.

      Now, with Win98 and and using File|Send, OE reads the HTML as text,
      with all of the tags shown to the reader but not executed by his/her
      (or my) email client.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks,
      David.

      Hi David, ... That is good news! ... My guess is you would have to use a Clip using perhaps mailto: and send the file as an attachment with your OE5 settings

        My guess is you would have to use a Clip using perhaps mailto:
        and send the file as an attachment with your OE5 settings set to
        send HTML attachments in the body of the message. I don't know
        how you set that in OE5 unless it is automatic.

        Perhaps Eric can work a wonder with it.

          Hi David,

          I'm not familiar with NTB v4.83, but I have played around with v4.82
          and Outlook Express 5. I have found two ways to create an HTML
          document that can be sent as an e-mail using OE5.

          First, you can create an HTML document and save it, preferably to the
          root directory (c:\file.htm). Then, from within OE5 select
          Message|New Message Using...|Web Page. You'll have to type in the
          location of the HTML document because OE5 doesn't give you a Browse
          function. Using the example file above as an example, use the format
          file:///c:/file.htm. If you've managed to type everything correctly,
          you will then see your HTML document in all of its glory. To see what
          OE5 has done to your beautifully crafted code, select View|Source
          Edit and then click on the Source tab at the bottom of the page.
          You'll see that OE5 has inserted some Meta tags, whatever it thinks
          is the correct document type and more.

          I prefer this approach:

          Open your HTML document and OE5. From within OE5 click on Message|New
          Message (or Ctrl+N). Once in the new message window, make sure you
          have selected Format|Rich Text (HTML), then click View|Source Edit
          and then click on the Source tab at the bottom of the page. Highlight
          everything OE5 has already put in there and delete it. Then copy and
          paste all of your HTML code from the document you have open in NTB
          into the Source window in OE5. Click on the Preview button and you'll
          see the OE5 rendition of your HTML document. Click on Source again
          and you'll see what OE5 has done to your code. In this case, it won't
          be too bad - just a couple of meta tags. You won't be able to make
          them go away permanently.

          Two notes:

          - You will probably find that OE5 renders your text in using the font
          that you have selected as default within OE5 (not your default
          browser font). If you want another font, you will have to specify it
          in a font tag within your HTML document.

          - If you want to include images in your document, you will probably
          want to upload them to a host and then refer to them with absolute
          rather than relative addresses in your HTML document. In other words,
          use the format: <img
          scr="http://www.yourwebsite.com/images/image1.jpg">

          I'm sure there are e-mail clients that make this simpler, but if
          you're using OE5, in actual practice the second method I outlined is
          pretty quick.

          Good Luck!

            Hi Mike and David,

            I just sent you a Clip to do this to use at your own risk. <g>
            I have to reinstall OE5 in order to test and don't know when I
            can get to that.

            >file:///c:/file.htm.

            Just a regular drive path worked for me such as:

            G:\notetab\html\clipbar.html
