1. You must send the message using either Rich Text Formatting (RTF),
or HTML formatting.
2. You must configure the IMS to preserve the client settings for
message formats. On the Internet Mail tab of the IMS properties, select
MIME for outbound messages, and make sure the HTML box is checked. This
enables HTML messages to the Internet. Click the Advanced Options... button
and make sure the Rich Text formatting option is set to User (which is the
default). This enables RTF messages to the Internet.
3. Finally, the recipient must use a mail client that is capable of
properly displaying HTML and/or RTF messages. Outlook 2000 can do both; I'm
sure there are other clients out there that can do HTML, and all Windows
versions of Outlook can do RTF (don't know about Mac versions).
