Nigel, Can you enlighten me on what software that you know of is HTML mail compatible. Also, if you can answer this one, is HTML mail basically the same as MIME compliant format? I am using the Outlook9 98 Beta and it is provides the option of HTML mail which in Outlook 97 was not stated as HTML but MIME. To respond to Maura, Microsoft has not cornered the market on buggy software. I believe that the public encourages the release of software before it is ready by purchasing it as soon as it is announced ready and by putting pressure on software companies (actually the greatest pressure is from the stockholder) to work through problems after the product is released. If the public refused to purchase buggy software and return buggy packages to the store that we bought them from, we may send a better message to the developer. The attachments attached to email is not necessarily a bug, but may be an announcement of an incompatibility. For example, I receive notices that my mail can not be read and has three separage attachments to it. Investigation shows that the receivers software does not support MIME or HTML formating. This is not a bug, but an incompatibility between software or versions. One more question that you may be able to answer: I have used Microsoft Office 97 Word, Excel and Powerpoint to produce an HTML document. I was disappointed when I found out that the graphics, buttons and text were not all bound in the same HTML document, but were placed in a folder (direcorty) ready for upload to your Web ISP. I was under the impression that it would be in one document that you could distribute like a graphic but with editing capabilities. In an article on Office 98 Beta in PC Computing, it stated that Office 97 & 98 boast HTML compatibility but did not deliver. It failed to explain whether they implied in one document or just simply failed to work. Any comments from anyone Dennis Wish PE
