Outlook 2003: convert all RTF emails to HTML

3 years ago we migrated from Lotus Notes to Exchange 2003 + Outlook

2003.

As you may or may not know, the default email format of Lotus Notes is

RTF, and after migration all mails were in RTF.

I'm not sure what the official default is for Outlook 2003, but in our

company it is set to RTF (although users can change that to HTML if

they want).

We started looking at some huge mailboxes.

Some had multi-megabyte images inline (usually printscreens).

When these emails were converted from RTF to HTML as a test, there was

a _drastic_ size reduction, between 10x and 100x smaller.

One of these days I expect a request to convert ALL emails of certain

mailboxes from RTF to HTML.

My question to the newsgroup is: is this technically possible? Without

any special stuff like Outlook Redemption? If the answer is yes, then

I'll reserve some time to look into it. If it can't be done, then I

would like to know too, to be prepared when I get the question.

Not sure if it retains all the formattings, but in principle just loop

through the Items collection and set each item's BodyFormat=2, then call

Save.

Best regards
