Outlook - Outlook Express / Ecards and Brochures

Posted on 2007-04-05

I have a client who wants to create ecards and brochures and send them via email.

She does not want to send them as attachments and so the graphics / pictures / brochures will have to appear as soon as her recipients open their emails.

What is the best way to do this in Outlook Express and Outlook - for instance - should I create the picture (graphics) first and cut and paste them in Outlook or Outlook Express?  

Software recommendations to make this process as simple as possible are also appreciated.

Thanks, Sandra

Sandra,

Have you tried formatting the message as HTML and embedding links to the images?  Unfortunately, if the recipient is on a text only client, this is not a good solution.  Personally, I enable HTML messages but there are a lot of people who either have text only e-mail or have it deliberately turned off.

I get advertising mail that embeds links to the images and I get some other mail that embeds the actual images.  The links are nicer because they have less overhead.  I can post some samples if you want.  Let me know.

Regards,
Gandalf

If you have your graphics in any image program, just press ctrl+a to select everything, ctrl+c to copy, switch to outlook open a new e-mail and press ctrl+p to paste the image. Now you have all the content directly in your message without any links or attachments. Can't get much simpler.
