    HTML Emails - Affiliate Program Application APPROVALS
    All,

    I am setting up my affiliate program in SAS and have written the HTML code I want to use for my approval email. Does anyone know how I can test the code to ensure the HTML is formated properly within the email? I dropped the code into a newsletter to preview it there and it works just fine. However, an affiliate that just joined replied to the "welcome email" and it only shows the code in text - not html.

    I suppose it is possible that his email application is text only, but how can I verify this? Also - anyone have some thoughts on how many publishers are using text only? If it seems like I high number, I may need to reformat the html to be a little more "text friendly"

    Thanks in advance for any info - Gideon

    I think all of the acceptances I've received within SAS were non-html.

    The approval and decline letters are for text format.

    Hi all,

    I send all my SAS emails in HTML, especially approval/welcome emails. Those of you in our SAS programs know why ...

    How do you manage to get them into html format, the fields are text formatted. Do you have to send them to SAS?

    Clyde,

    I contacted SAS as well. They got back to me and said: "Found the problem - your email is now going out as an HTML email." I tested it out and confirmed it is now working properly. They didn't get into specifics, so I don't know what the issue is/was, but hopefully they get back to you with similar info.

    I use text for datafeed approval e-mails, and HTML for most of newsletters and all program approval e-mails. IMO, the main reason/advantage for HTML in the program approval ones is the convenience of letting affiliates see their choice of banners (with HTML codes for them included right there) right at the start.

    Yes Geno thats a major advantage. You can spoon feed those who apply for the program with HTML approval letters.
