Attn:MVPS - Custom Outlook Home Page and Outlook's HTML Rendering Engine


D

David C. Holley

I'm aware that Outlook 2007 now uses Word 2007's HTML rendering engine for
emails and subsequently there are numerous aspects of HTML that are no
longer supported. However, when I designate a Home Page for an Outlook
Folder, Outlook doesn't seem to have any issues rendering the HTML. Am I
correct that any page can be set as the Home Page for an Outlook Folder and
that it will be rendered as if its being viewed directly in a browser?
(Browser-nuances excluded).

Only mail uses word to render html - outlook itself still uses a stub of IE
with heighten security. Security is tighter so some "active" features won't
work, but for the most part, folder homepages work well.

Sorta the answer I was looking for. I came up with a .HTML page that uses
the Outlook View Control to enable a user to view their Calendar, Inbox and
Tasks on a single page and was entertaining the idea of expanding it a bit.
