Microsoft Outlook cannot sent this item

If you send an email with Microsoft Outlook, and you get the error message "cannot sent this item", here's thw work around, which Microsft doesn't tell you anywhere. Change the email to a regular text email, and you can send it, but you will lose all of yoru HTML formatting.

In Outlook 2007, you have to go to the Options "robbon" at the top, then go to the group of items that say "Format", which is usually the 3rd group over, and change the email to a text olnly format.

In Outlook 2003, its more difficult.

If you are editing an actual message, there shoudl be a toolbar that says "Send on the left, and over on the right, says "Optins", then HTML, and you shoudl change that to Plain Text and resend.

If you see Bill Gates, tell him I said he sucks.
