How can I put a HTML code in outlook 2010? The code is:

<p style="color:red;">Hello</p>

How can I put that in the message using Outlook 2010?


Might need to find a different email client/editor if you want to send HTML tags in your email: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/i-can-t-use-html-tags-in-html-e-mail-messages-HA010199144.aspx

Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 uses an e-mail message editor based on Microsoft Office Word 2007. Office Outlook 2007 offers a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editing environment. The message that you compose is converted to HTML format for sending.

Office Outlook 2007 is not designed for you to directly enter or view HTML tags when composing an e-mail message.

You need to install HTML Code Editor for Outlook, which is Outlook add-in to allow you edit native HTML directly on Outlook.


You can download a installer on download tab. It'll allow you to import HTML file or edit HTML source code of your e-mail.

  • This still works with Outlook 2016! – Gabriel Luci Mar 20 '19 at 15:52
