Help using forms in Outlook

I need help doing 1 of 2 things.

1. I have a form created in Microsoft Word. It's a simple form that has a

couple of text boxes and a couple of check mark boxes. We send this form

alot and we need it to be in the body of the email, not as an attachment. I

have to unlock the form to place it in the body of the email and once it is

in there, I can't lock it again so the form can actually be filled out. Is

there a way to do that??? This is the way I'd prefer to do it.

2. The other option is to use Infopath for the form. I have imported the

form into Infopath and figured out how to publish it as an email. Here's the

problem with this. I need to be able to save the form on my desktop as an

email message so that I double click to open and it's already ready to go

filled out with who to send it to etc. I want to just click the things I need

and hit send. When I try to save it like this, I can only save as an

Infopath document and not an email message. This is critical because I have

to install this on the desktop of my entire team with multiple addresses to

send to and I can't risk that they might inadvertently miss one. (creating a

distro is not an option for this particuliar group)

Can anyone let me know if either of my scenarios are possible?

1) Not possible. Word forms don't translate into email messages.

2) Try asking for a solution in the InfoPath forum at

http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.infopath

Thanks for the info, Sue. I do have this same question in the InfoPath forum

as well. Hopefully, I'll get a response there about that part of it.
