Hi,

I'm wondering what the current best practise is for sending html emails in Outlook.

I have a client who would like to send out an email consisting of one (or more) images which ech have links to parts of their website.  I've done this before by creating the email in DW uploading it and then using IE's "send page by email" which opens up the page successfully in a new Outlook message.

But what is currently the best way to do this?  I should add that ease of use for the client is a factor.

Look forward to your comments,
Tony

Greetings, Treder !

You can create a template for the user with instructions on how to insert images.

Hi War1,

thanks for the reply.  That email was published over 3 years ago.  Is that really still the way to go?

Microsoft Word can be used to create WYSIWYG html e-mails if you don't have any other html software available.

You can also copy/paste from Microsoft FrontPage into Outlook.

Or, depending on the volume of e-mails your client intends to broadcast, you may want to look at a hosted solution like iBuilder (www.verticalresponse.com), Constant Contact (www.constantcontact.com), or CampaignerPro (www.gotcorp.com).
