FrontPage HTML Email and Pictures


M

Maestro

I have been teaching myself to use FrontPage, mostly to design and send HTML
emails. But there's one thing I'm having trouble with:

All the pictures/graphics I use do not display correctly in the email - all
the recipient sees is a placeholder box with a small red X in it.

I have searched high and low for solutions to this problem and come up zip!
Can anyone in this forum help? Thanks!

The images need to be stored somewhere on the internet, and you'll have to
fix the urls to them before you send out the email.

Or you can try composing your html email in Outlook Express instead

or send PDFs instead.

Thanks so much for the very fast response, Rob.

Okay, so how do I go about "storing the pictures somewhere on the Internet?"
Would I do so on a web site somewhere...like my company's web site, for
example, or on a server?

You guys are great with your quick responses. Thank you! I know this is
going to seem like a dorky follow-up question, but you have to realize that
my level of computer expertise is not like yours. I can do pretty much
anything, but sometimes I need someone to talk me through the process.

My follow-up question is this: How do I go about saying the graphics on my
business' web site or on our server?

LOLOLOLOL... Now that's the best advice I've had all day, Rob. Knowing me,
I am liable to break something! :)

You may want to explore my second suggestion as well.

Using OE as your mail client to compose your html email in - I haven't done
t his in a long while so I'm not sure if it still works but - OE used to
(maybe still does) embed the images in the em so you don't have to (or
didn't have to) use live links. Try it maybe it still works.

What I used to do because I never used Outlook Express for my client was I'd
create the html email then email it to myself and retrieve it with Outlook,
then save it as a Draft then send it out from Outlook since all my Contacts
were in Outlook and not Outlook Express.

Well, I want to make things a little more complex than I think OE will allow,
Rob. In the past, I've created a Publisher document and then emailed that in
the body of an email. It works, but the clarity isn't great. Of course,
I've also sent these kinds of emails as a PDF attachment.

I have found out that I can save images on our web site in a special folder,
so I think I'm going to give it a try composing HTML emails using FrontPage.

You've really been great with your help, and I appreciate it.
