When you use Microsoft Outlook 2000, Microsoft Outlook 2002, or Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with Microsoft Internet Explorer, you can send a viewable Web page with active links to others who use Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, or other HTML-aware e-mail programs.

More information

To send a Web page in your e-mail message, Outlook must be the default e-mail program, you must use HTML as the default message format, and you must enable "Send Pictures from the Internet" in the message you send.

Select "Send Pictures from the Internet"

To select "Send Pictures from the Internet," follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
  2. Click to select HTML in the "Send in this message format" list, and then click OK.
  3. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, on the View menu, click Internet Options.

    Note For Internet Explorer 5.x versions, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
  4. Click the Programs tab, verify that Microsoft Outlook appears in the Mail box, and click OK.
  5. Browsing the Web page that you want to send, on the File menu, point to Send, and then click Page By Email. In a moment, a mail message that contains the page appears.

    Note These procedures work only if you are browsing the Web page. If you open a page from your hard drive, you can send it only as an attachment.
  6. In your open message, on the Format menu, click Send Pictures from the Internet. This enables the page to be viewed without being connected to the Internet.
  7. Address the message, and then click Send.


For more information about formatting new mail, follow these steps: On the Help menu, click Microsoft Outlook Help, type new messages in the Office Assistant or in the Answer Wizard, and then click Search to view the topics that are returned.
