How to send a HTML Mailshot

Hi All,

I have an index.html file and a folder of images that the index file uses to build an image.  I want to send this in an email so that it dispalys as teh image/webpage in teh body of the mail.  This has all been coded by a web developer.

Hi, Gav.

If the image sources are set to a URL (e.g. http://company.com/somesite/image1.jpg), then they'll be downloaded when the message is viewed.  The person reading the message will need to have access to the location the images are stored in.  If they don't, then they'll see a red X in place of each image.  If you want the images to be embedded in the message, then copy all the images to the Stationery folder and change the image source to just the filename (e.g. image1.jpg).

Hi, MisterMoleyMole.

The simplest way to accomplish this is to copy index.html to Outlook's stationery folder (i.e. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Sstationery), then create a new message using that stationery.  This will work fine is the image tags in the html file all use absolute paths and the images are in a location that is accessible by all message recipients.

Ahhh thankyou.

At what point are the images downloaded into the mail ? when they open the message or will the exchange server download them and add them to the message on sending ?
