I'm aware that Outlook 2007 now uses Word 2007's HTML rendering engine for

emails and subsequently there are numerous aspects of HTML that are no

longer supported. However, when I designate a Home Page for an Outlook

Folder, Outlook doesn't seem to have any issues rendering the HTML. Am I

correct that any page can be set as the Home Page for an Outlook Folder and

that it will be rendered as if its being viewed directly in a browser?

(Browser-nuances excluded).

Only mail uses word to render html - outlook itself still uses a stub of IE

with heighten security. Security is tighter so some "active" features won't

work, but for the most part, folder homepages work well.

Sorta the answer I was looking for. I came up with a .HTML page that uses

the Outlook View Control to enable a user to view their Calendar, Inbox and

Tasks on a single page and was entertaining the idea of expanding it a bit.
