Thanks again for your replies on this guys, just got back on my email.
It might be worth investing 10 bucks in campaign monitor just to see
what they recommend.

Cheers

You could always open the page in word document and if everything looks
fine there it will look fine in outlook 2007 since its using MS Word to
render!

Problem with that is potential differences between Word HTML

2003 - 2007. I haven't really looked into it but it would stand to
reason there may be differences... they stupidly thought it good
enough to be the sole renderer for the most widely used email client
on the planet, so you'd at least hope it improved...



It might be worth downloading the Word 2007 Viewer - it's a free  
download which allows you to View, print and copy Microsoft Word  
documents, even if you don't have Microsoft Word installed:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/CD102258581033.aspx

Maybe somebody with access to Outlook 2007 can compare the two to see  
if they are comparable.


HTH,

Nick.

Thanks for your replies everyone. I was hoping Browsercam had gotten
onto it or a site like that.

I think the best thing to do is grab a version for XP, I didn't
actually know I could add it to that.

Thanks for your help

Hey Paul, if you have a friend with it -- set up remote desktop
connection and you'll be able to use outlook. I have outlook2007 on
XP, you can send email to me and i will send back a printscreen.

Cheers,

Office 2007 runs fine on XP, with the new stupid Word rendering engine
and all. And assuming you don't buy an OEM copy the license will be
valid on Vista if you ever do upgrade (and if you DO buy an OEM copy
and upgrade to Vista on the same hardware, it's still valid).

If you're regularly testing for Outlook '07, probably a worthwhile
investment over remote-hosted services. That said I've got no hard
numbers on usage stats for it... we're testing for it, but it's
possibly not significant just yet.

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa338201.aspx is a useful resource.

Hope this helps

Josh
