    What'll happen if anyone starts emailing to that address? It's a security issue but there are software out there that handle a blog sent by email to be published. Check out blog software.

    im a bit confused here.....are you trying to send an HTML Newsletter which can show images and hyperlinks or just the images which can be downloaded via your website?

    I would like to send an HTML email with hyperlinks and images that can be downloaded once the recipient accepts the download.

    They may be my images or other images on the web.

    How is this done?

    you have to prepare your own HTML file, then link the images to the we server so that the html can fetch the images from the web directly instead of locally, then open your html in any web browser, copy the contents of the html, past in the body of your outlook email and it should work.

    also, there are third party email blast software which are specially designed for sending such type of html newsletters. have a search on google and choose the one which suites your needs and pocket well :)
