making html email newsletters.

NZed

I am looking for a tool or method of producing html email newsletters.
We have a club webpage and would like to follow the design through with
links.
Does anyone have a program or method of doing this that has been sucessful
for them ?
I am using FP2002 and outlook express.
Looking forward to your replies.

PS have tried pasting files from FP2002 but the links dont work.

Have you considered creating the newsletter online as part of your web, and
then just sending users a text based email with a link to the current
newsletter?

Thanks...yes I did...dissadvantage being that I want a list of information
on the email with photos and updates then with links to updates on the
website.

Any suggestions for a program or a workaround with outlook express or
another program ?

You could still create a HTML email and send it but place all of your images
within your website, and then create absolute URL to them in your email.

I dislike HTML email, so I can not offer any additional suggestion or
workarounds.

I only sign up for newsletter, etc. that are available in plain text since
they take up more space on my HD. In most cases the emails come with a link
to the web site for the HTML version.

You could try designing you email in FrontPage and then copy the html code
into your email on outlook.

I believe that you will still need to check picture links as they will be
pointing to your local drive.

Alternatively you could use an online mailing list like
http://www.yourmailinglistprovider.com/

They allow you to create html email.

I agree with Tom in that you should use absolute hyperlinks. I do exactly
this with my weekly newsletter which is database driven and goes out to
around 8000 subscribers. However, I make sure that I make available both a
text and html version. All I do is open the applicable asp page and then
choose "send page" from within IE. Works fine. Don't forget to also make
your graphics absolute (for that page).
