February 4th, 2007, 01:37 PM #1how would i send HTML email ?
how would i send an email to someone as HTML format ?
so that when i send it, i send the code but when they receive the email they see it as a regular HTML web site.
i read somewhere that you have to save the code as a text file on the desk top and then not sure where to go from there.
if anyone can help i would greatly appreciate it.

I think this is a good question. The same thing has confounded me, as well.
What email program are you using? Is it set to compose email in HTML or text?
Is there are menu or wizard in your program to make a template?
If so, What is the routine to compose an email in the template?
This is just to compose them one at a time, right? Otherwise, I would think there would be options in any -webbased email composer that you would clearly see to paste the HTML into and be able to test.

A lot of consumer email clients (Outlook, Mac Mail, etc...) don't let you send HTML emails. You'll have to look for more professional email clients or do it via coding (ie. sendmail or something). A google search should help you find HTML email programs.Jason Rosenbaum

someone is about to say something like RTFM. So, I did a search for "send html" at the help menu index of outlook and noted -
"You can use Office E-mail to send a file as an HTML message. (Office 2000 only.) The file appears as the body of the message, not as an attachment. Because the message is sent as HTML, all recipients can read it, whether or not the appropriate Office program is set up on their computer, as long as their e-mail program can read HTML".
You can use Microsoft Word as your e-mail editor. You can specify Word as your default e-mail editor, and then use it to create all your messages. When you use Word as your e-mail editor, a message is always saved as an Outlook item, not as a Word file.
You can use stationery to set the fonts, background color, and images that you want to include in outgoing e-mail messages. Stationery is only available if you use HTML as your message format".
Does anyone actually do this? Seems clunky but what do I know. I've used ACT and HTML Templates to MailMerge. But again, that is for one or a small group with personalization merged in.
Hope it helps
