    hi there,

    i'm having some trouble with a word doc, then using the built in email to outlook functionality, sending it as a message, not an attachment. attached is the word doc so you can get an idea of what it is supposed to look like (the 7zip attachment "template5 - copy")

    and then once it gets to outlook, the text does not respect the indentations and stretches to the window size. so if it's maximized, the text falls out of the limits of the book background (clipboard3 jpg)

    and finally, once it does get emailed to outlook, how can i make it so that it's centered in the window? as you can see in that jpg, it hugs the left side. i want that book bg to appear centered aligned to the window.

    any help would be appreciated...

    thanks

    I do NOT think that the email spec's support what you are trying to do.

    Remember that NOT everyone use Outlook or even Word.

    the email will be an internal newsletter to which all people getting it will be using outlook 2007, a few have 2010 version now. so as far as formatting it, it all has to be oriented for only those 2 apps.
    and it will all be originating from word 2007.
    so knowing that, is there a way to fix this?

    Since you are using Outlook 2007, it does in fact use Word as the editor. You can NOT change it NOT to use Word.

    So, if you can not compose this email within Outlook 2007, then the email spec's does NOT support what you want to do.

    You will need to use the Word file as an attachment.

    So what you're saying is to try and construct it directly in outlook to see exactly how it will come out when emailed? And whatever I can't do there, can't be done...
