html newsletter

Hi
We need to send a mail out to our customers of an event we are organizing.
Does anyone know how to create an html newsletter i.e.. it looks like a
web page but it appears in the email message pane images and all.
Thanks

Easy way is to compose it in Outlook Express.

But since I use Outlook for email, I just email myself the newsletter from OE to O, then save it as a draft - then email it out from Outlook. Composing html email in Outlook itself is a pain.

This is my work-around..there are other ways too.

Most simple method.. publish the page to a server and send a link to the page

A little harder....set Outlook express to compose / send email in html mode and then create the
page in OE.
When the page ( email ) is sent, the images will be embedded in the email.
However, if people have OE set to view email in text mode only, the page won't work.

Next hardest, publish the images to a server, and then insert the images in the email by linking to
the images on the server.
But again if people have OE set to text only, it won't work.

Or, if they're running XP SP-2 with subsequent updates and the settings
are left to default, I think attached images don't open (not 100%
certain of this because I never use the defaults but I think this is
true since the jpeg issue).

With Windows SP2 or recent OE Updates, Outlook Express (HTML email allowed) will not show any linked
images by default. The user has to click on the notice to see them, which appears when the images
are being blocked.

Embedded images will be displayed automatically.

They don't open, but are listed at the top of the email. I think the only
way to get such a message to customers is still by snail mail because of the
restrictions most put on email.
