Can FrontPage be used for HTML email?

Guest

I would like to create an email letterhead with color and graphics, like some
ads that I've received by email. I don't know the correct name of this. Is it
HTML email? Anyway, is it posiible to use FrontPage for this type of
application? If not, can someone direct me to where I can get this done, or
to someone who specializes in this type of creation? And what is the correct
name of it? Thanks.

You are close enough when saying so but another way to say so
would identifys the subject first and then uses the adjective to describe
the properties of the noun by saying 'e-mail sent as HTML.'

Anyway, I'd like the job to fix you up but there's at least two or
three very decent applications that are likely to already be developed.
They probably don't integrate with FrontPage though. You should
check out the Office Marketplace and look for add-ins first noting
in general the stand-alone applications almost always function much
better than add-ins.

Use Google to find some forums where people discuss
e-commerce and marketing issues. Finally, while not a FrontPage
site I can recommend SitePoint [1] as a resource with many
knowledgeable and experienced web developers and marketers
that will definitely have something to say about which applications they
have found to be useful when needing to send e-mail as HTML.

Try using Stationary in Outlook or Outlook Express. This method is often
easier than using FrontPage.

You're much better off to do it in Outlook Express set to compose in html format. That way your
email is not dependent upon images being published on a public server.

When done in OE, when you send the message, OE embeds the images into a monolithic file in binary
format.

Keep in mind though that people you send the email to will have to have OE ( or whatever email
client they use ) set to view messages in html format. If they don't your message will not display
properly.

You best bet however is to create an publish a page, and then send a link to the page.

I use FP03 for my newsletter with no problems. Create a 1 page doc not site,
then click send. This will move doc to outlook, then you may have to right
click the images that are missing and re-set properties.

I think the 'solutions' offered by others proves my point.

Sending e-mail as HTML is a sloppy and time consuming process
when tyring to use OE or FrontPage to perform tasks which neither
OE or FrontPage were developed to perform.

Its the same old adage all over again, "everything looks like a
nail when the only tool you have is a hammer."
