    Windows Live Mail; Format; HTML

    Hello,

    how is the correct configuration for Windows Live Mail, if I want to
    send a HTML eMail.

    A eMail for News with Courier New 10pt ?

    Only if, I use Format - Normal
    - Format
    - Overhead1
    ......
    my partner receive the mail correct.
    But for me it is not possible to make a global configuration, or?
    It is also not possible to say, what ist Format, for example Arial 10pt, or?


    Regards
    Ulrike

    Sounds like you are selecting STYLE form the Format menu. I'd avoid
    that.

    In Tools, Options, Compose, you can set default font settings.

    Also while composing, you can select the desire font from the tool bar
    at the top of the compose window, or highlight the desired text and then
    select the font you want for the highlighted text.

    OK. Sorry I like it HTML Mails.
    Why not?

    So I think it is not possible to define formats for style similar as in
    Word 2003.

    What I described was using HTML format. You can't do any formatting
    unless you use HTML.

    Using Styles is optional with HTML. If you want to use Styles, perhaps
    someone with more experience with them can help you.
