How can I send an HTML Email from my Notes Client?

Hi

I want to send an HTML email from my Notes client to various people, & I have created the HTML of the email. Trouble is, when I paste it into Notes & mark it as Pass-Thru HTML, nothing happens, & the user receives an email containing a plain-text rendering of my HTML - not what I intended at all!

I can't simply send the email as rich text, as there are images & a pdf file that would need to be attached, so the email is over 1½MB - if I use HTML & link to these files on the web, then the email is 3KB.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks,
Paul

You can display your html file from IE. From there, select all, copy and then paste to your email in Notes Client. it will work.

I've tried this, & it isn't exactly what I wanted, as the images are contained inline within the email, rather than linked to on the Internet; however, the images are really tiny compared to the pdf file, which is the reason I was doing this.

As pure HTML, the email is 3KB. With the images inline, as in your suggestion, it is 13KB. With the pdf file attached, it is 1½MB.

If I had a regular mailshot to do, I'd probably choose to persevere with the Agent option suggested by the others, but as I only have a single email to send out, I'm gonna go with your simple pasting suggestion.

Thanks,
Paul
