I bought the version of MS Office 2008 which uses exchange so I can use it at work but there's an annoying problem I don't seem to be able to fix.
When I receive an email into Entourage's in box, the formatting of HTML documents looks great, but when I forward the message it looses all formatting. I can even see the lost formatting on screen.
I've really been through all the settings and I can't seem to be able to fix it.
Any suggestions please. Using the latest MBP with Snow Leopard.

I just found the answer here:
Entourage Help Page (http://entourage.mvps.org/)

How incredibly stupid of Micro$oft.
In Entourage if you try to just forward a message with HTML formatting, like a table or an image, you'll loose the formatting unless you create a new message first and save the first message as an attachment.
Absolutely incredible how Micro$oft can't even get the basics right.
Not happy at all!

Wonder if I can use the Snow Leopard version of Mail on an Exchange 2000 server? Looks like my only alternative other than using Windows and Outlook on the Mac.
