If you are using a Tablet PC (Tablet PC: A computer that runs Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. With a Tablet PC, you can write directly on the screen by using a tablet pen and use the pen to perform mouse functions. Also known as a tablet computer.) and you use Microsoft Office Word 2003 as your e-mail editor, you can use a tablet pen (tablet pen: The pen that comes with a Tablet PC and is used to interact with the tablet screen.) to add ink (ink: The writing or drawing strokes made with a tablet pen or mouse.) to your e-mail messages in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. Using ink allows you to put your handwriting in e-mail messages, make a quick reply to a message during a meeting, or make a quick drawing, such as a map.
You can insert ink in a message when you create a new message and when you reply to or forward a message that was sent to you. The ink appears as a picture to the recipient of the message.
Note You can insert ink only in the body of the message. Other information, such as names in the To box and a title in the Subject box, must be typed text.
