    I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure html is currently supported. According to Outlook the emails sent from my phone are html.

    You question doesn't 100% make sense. Do you want to access an Outlook Exchange account through the phone's web browser?

    Clarify in your above seed post and I'll respond here.

    no I would like the activesync email account that I have set up through my phone to come in as html if the emails are html. currently they don't do this through the stock email widget they do it if I use touch down but not the stock email, why would this be? Is there a way to get tge stock email client to display html emails as html?

    So, you're seeing the html tags? Like "<blah> .... </blah>"?

    Yes. Or in other instances, ill see a link to a .pdf file. But in the touch down client, the pdf is actually displayed in the email

    Thunderbolt's email client supports HTML email out of the box--provided you're on a version of Exchange that supports it with ActiveSync inherently. On Exchange 2003, my Thunderbolt's email client did not support HTML email. When I was migrated over to Exchange 2010, it supported HTML email. I think the 2007 version of Exchange does as well, but could be wrong.

    Now, this said, I do know that some email clients worked with Exchange 2003 and HTML email--as I had this when I was trying various ROMs on other Android handset. The Gingerbread ROM I tried on my Sprint Evo did not support HTML email when I was on Exchange 2003, but did in 2010. This would lead me to conclude that Gingerbread has the same "limitations" as other email clients with respect to this functionality.
