Hi!

I may be being a bit dense here, but if you are running Outlook 2003, does that not mean you are running Office 2003 on a Windows XP operating system? Hence you can't have Word XP as your editor, because it doesn't exist, it would have to be Word 2003?

I may be wrong about this!

However, if I am right - and please don't shoot me if you have already tried this and are thinking "well, duh"! - go into Outlook, click on TOOLS , then OPTIONS, then select the MAIL FORMAT tab and click the box to use Word 2003 as your email editor.

Hope this may help! Let me know!

Thanks lizzy dripping !

I am using only outlook 2003 and NOT office 2003, hence I am still on office xp . now there is conflict of outlook 2003 using word xp as an email editor..

The option you mentioned under tools--> options -->Mail Format--> isn't available and is greyed out because of the mismatch..

any other solution plz

Oh dear! I was surfing a little outside my area of expertise there and I'm afraid that's the only advice I had for you!

Hopefully somebody who has more idea about troubleshooting this kind of thing can sort it.

Sorry I wasn't much help!
