I want to learn how to create an e-flyer, one that will open immediately when the user opens the email.  What I understand so far is that firstly I must create an html page containing the e-flyer image and host this page on a server.  What I want to learn is what I need toinclude in email I send to the user.

If my eflyerpage.html codes is like this for example:
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

Well.  You won't be able to set it up to automatically open, as 98% of email clients block this since it is one of the most common way to send a virus, trojan, or worm.

When you send out the email, amke sure it is in HTML format, then add a link to the page somewhere, just like you would do on any normal page of a website (<a href="http://www.seniordesigns.co.uk"><img src="images/accessories_pic.gif" width="254" height="251" border="0"></a>)

So the client will have to click on the link before they go to the page containing the e_flyer?
Is there any way you can have a mouse over event to open the link?

you can using javascript.  However as I said before most email clients block all scripting.

It's all too easy to send a virus, trojan, or worm by allowing scripts to run in an email
