Ok, I am going to expand on that a little. If you want to send an email notification to a teamsite user, possibly with some action that you might want them to perform, maybe with them choosing some values from a drop-down list then you have to find another solution because Microsoft Outlook 2007 does not support HTML forms (see here for more details).

The solution? Place a link to where the form can be accessed online. Microsoft has done it again. Not happy… Grumble grumble grumble… Go sign the petition please.
