HTML Email Newsletter

Hi Folks - Currently, I can open a web page directly on the web server with
FP 2003, copy and paste it into Outlook 2002, then send to numerous
recipients. It works great. However, my web site is being moved to a server
that does not support FrontPage extensions. I will still create the
newsletters in FP, but I will have to FTP them to the server. My question
.... since I cannot open the web page directly anymore, how can I copy and
paste the server version into Outlook so I can send out the newsletter?
Thanks.

P.S. - I have had limited success copying and pasting a page from Internet
Explorer to Outlook. Seems if there are style sheets being used, the copy
and paste does not go so well.

Just because you have to ftp the page to the server doesn't mean you won't be able to open it in a
browser.
That said, why are you moving to a server *without* extensions??

Here the place I use for my HTML email news letters. What I do is create it
in FP then copy the complete code, them paste it to the html area.

It also allows visitors to subscribe and unsubscribe. They have both free
and paid membership. I have been using the free one for 2 years now and
have over 5000 names on my mailing list.

Also almost forgot, you have a choice of both text and html.

Hope that this may help.

I have no choice concerning web servers ..... Yes, I know I can open the
page in Internet Explorer, select all, then copy and paste into Outlook.
That technique works fine most of the time. For instance, if I go to
http://www.homekeyinc.com/courseoutlines.htm, Edit/Select All, Edit/Copy,
then go to a new Outlook email and Paste, I get the page exactly. However,
if I go to http://www.governor.ri.gov/artshow04.shtml and follow the same
procedure, I do NOT duplicate the page exactly. Any ideas?

Could be any number of reasons. Note that the page is a smart html or shtml page which means there
is some sort of "server action used in creating the page.
Also the page uses headers and footers.

What part doesn't "work" when you copy and paste into OE
