    The problem is that it cannot be inside of any body tags or script tags because yahoo and hotmail strip those from their emails. This is for a postcard script, so when the recipient gets the greeting a new window opens and gives them a chance to join a newsletter.

    Can dhtml be used to open a popup?

    Any info on additional ways to open popups will be greatly appreciated!

    are you able to use 'form buttons' within the hotmail ?

    if yes then try using the onclick= method of calling the popup.

    I use it at trivio when someone sends a greetings card a popup activates asking to sign up to the newsletter.

    Take a look if you think it may work for you.

    Thanks Guffy, The thing is that only my members can send postcards so i need to pop it on the load.

    Reason being that 80% of the recipients have either hotmail, yahoo, or msn addresses.

    Each of these services strip the body tags, and any script tags from all incoming mail.

    I am starting to think that there is no way to do it, "no event to be handled is the problem"

    There are two ways you could do this:

    1) Just use set a target on your link.

    If you need to control the size of the page, you can use javascript to do it when the person gets there.

    2) You can actually embed the javascript in the link.

    The link looks like this:
    a href="#" onClick="'','cracksmoker','toolbar=no,location=no,directories=no,status=yes,menubar=no,resizable=yes,copyhistory=no,scrollbars=no,width=295,height=285');"

    Obviously, you'll have to bracket it, but you get the idea.
