Outlook Express lets you create and view e-mail in HTML instead of just in plain text. To create an HTML message, click the Compose Message button on the main menu. In the New Message window, select Rich Text (HTML) from the Format menu. A new toolbar appears that contains standard HTML formatting buttons for fonts, lists, bullets, lines, links and images. You can use these buttons to create slick HTML email that your recipients can view either in HTML-ready e-mail programs or in a Web browser.
You can permanently change the settings (to send all your e-mail (or news) in HTML or Plain Text) by selecting Tools > Options from the menu, on the Send tab you can choose how you want to send your e-mail and news.

If you just want to view replies to your posts:
