Web-based email newsletter - Publisher or FrontPage


G

Guest

Hi

I am trying to develop a commonly used "Web-based email newsletter" and I don't know which of Publisher 2003 or FrontPage 2003 is the best and easiest tool for this task

What I meant by "Web-based email newsletter" is a newsletter with HTML format, many graphics are not sent with the email but resides on server site, so the email size is not too large, and readers can see it when they have Internet access

I know that this is common practice now. I am thinking to upgrade either of my Publisher 2002 or FrontPage 2002 to 2003 version and this is one of the most factors that I will include in my decision

Can anyone share me with your experinces with either or the easiest way to do this task

Thanks in advance.

Not Publisher! Even though you can save pages as HTML you don't want to go
that route... much of what Publisher builds it often turns into images which
are very slow to load.. FrontPage will do the best job.

Hi:

Thanks for your kind advise.

One more question.

Here is my situation:

We are a small company and we use ASP for hosting our web site.

In the past, what we're doing is to have a local web site created by
FrontPage (i.e. C:\My Documents\MY Webs).

After contents have been created or modified, we then published it to the
local site (My Webs in this case).

The used FTP to move files to ASP's directories. It seems to work fine in
that case.

Now for HTML email as mentioned here. What should we do? Are we:

(1) Create a HTML files which will be used as email later
(2) Publish the HTML files to the local web site as before
(3) FTP to ASP directories
(4) And next? How do we send that email using Outlook?

I'm a little bit of confused, and thanks anyone would kindly help us.

Thanks in advance.

Browse to the finished page on your server URL at ASP
File Send Link by Email
or File Save As - select Web Archive (*.mht) and attach the saved .mht file to your email

Hi:

Thanks for reply.

Here is my puzzle. I can use FTP software (i.e. CuteFTP) to browse server
directory at ASP.

And FTP software does not support the Send or File - Save as.

I can use those two commands at local server but it then will not be
correct.

So,...?

Thanks again.
