To insert symbols into email or use the preview tab you must first make sure that your outlook express is configured correctly. Start by clicking create mail

 

 

Then go to view and click on Source Edit this will put a checkmark by it.

 

 

Three tabs will appear at the bottom of the email window

 

 

You should also check to make sure that your Rich Text (HTML) formatting is selected. Go to Format on the toolbar and make sure a circle is by it, if not click it.

 

 

The first tab is the default screen that you normally see when you do email. The last tab will show you how your email will look when you send it. The second tab is where you can edit the html code.

 

 

Warning

Entering advanced area:::: Stop if you get frustrated easy

Okay click on the source tab.

 

 

The only line you need to know for our project is the one highlighted below.

 

 

If you put your cursor after the &nbsp; and before the </DIV> tag and hit enter a couple of times. Your code should look like this:

 

 

We can now type between the <DIV></DIV> tags.

Type the following: &#192;

 

 

Then press preview and see your symbol appear.

 

 

Note: If you click on the edit tab and go back to source, it will have converted your &#192 to the symbol in your code It will send correctly it is just the nature of the program.

 

The 192 can be replaced with the numbers 33 255.

I have included a chart of the numbers and symbols
