I ran into a simmialr problem with GroupWise. Takke a look at all the attachments, file properties, etc. for a few differnt HTML mails in your Outlook mail box. In order for GroupWise to display a HTML file as the message instead of the attachment it has to be named TEXT.htm. As it turns out, immediately upon creating a new message GroupWise creates a TEXT.htm and attaches it to the message. By attaching your own TEXT.htm you override the file created by GroupWise and viola! Your HTML is displayed as the message.
I suspect that Outlook has some simmilar type of file.

...Here's the problem: We're working in Outlook 2000, and can't figure out how
to pour the newsletter into a message so that it's an integral part of the
message rather than an attachment. Similarly, we'd like the graphics to be
embedded in the file rather than externally linked. Copying and pasting
doesn't work, and inserting the newsletter as a file turns it into an
attachment. Obviously, we're missing something, and as usual, the online
help isn't. <g>
