i have see the letter, its not a simple html page; as it contains lots of coding and formatting;

in that case, pasting the contents in outlook body is not gonna work, as outlook html format supports only text, hyperlinks and images, not css or backgrounds stuff.

i will advise to use a professional bulk emailer program to achieve this;
find on internet, and choose the product which suites your requirements, needs and pocket;

i personally use Dynamic Mail Communicator
http://www.dynamicmailcom.com/

Or was using Rapid E-Mailer before that

if you will be using outlook, then just open your html newletter in any browser, select all the contents (text plus images) of the html page, and paste them in the body of your outlook message.

and make sure that the email format is set t html in outlook settings, it should send the html newsletter with the images and text now without the need of uploading images somewhere online.

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply.

In my case the images are placed in different folders in a D drive of my system.

So, how to make it possible to add all the images in the newsletter while sending it through the outlook express?

For testing purpose I uploaded the newsletter at this place.

Hi,
Yes, you can send an html newsletter via email that contains images. You simply host the images on a publicly accessible site - as you have now.  In the code, use fully qualified paths pointing to the images at this space.

Instead of:
<img src="EXPOBABA/html/filled-version/images/pix09.gif">

Use
<img src="http://www.makemoneybusiness.info/EXPOBABA/html/filled-version/images/pix09.gif">

Your path should be such that if you pasted it in a browser on any machine, you'd see the image.  Do the same for your css reference and any other background images or file/link references.

Note that many users will have the image downloads blocked in their email software. It is good to host the entire newsletter on a site (as you have now), and include a link to it at the top of the email that says something like "If this newsletter does not display correctly, click here to view it in a browser."
