I´ve done  a very simple site with flash http://www.coolshotfilms.com/multiopticas/multiopticas.html and I´ve send it by mail from safari.
The problem is that the link to a external page doesn´t work when I receive the site in mail,however in safari works properly.I´ve spent two days trying that the link(fotos) works in mail but I don´t know how to do anymore
I´m doing something wrong with this part of the html:
<!--url's used in the movie-->
<a href="http://www.coolshotfilms.com/multiopticas/fotos.html"></a>
<!--text used in the movie-->
<!-- saved from url=(0013)about:internet -->

Thanks  a lot

What does the rest of the html in the email look like?  What do the email headers look like (make sure you removed sensitive info if you post it)?

Have to you tested this by sending the message to only one account?  What email program(s) or site(s) have you tested this message on?

The anchor tag looks good.  I don't see that you need the "mark of the web" line (line with "saved from url") but if you include it the line needs to be at the start of the html code, not in it.

The problem is probably general html validity or related to the email program.  Some, especially depending on settings, will disable some html email content.  Answers to the questions above and those details should help.

Let me know if you have a question.


p.s.  Just a suggestion but you may want to consider adding more points to this question.  One reasons is no one has responded yet and it is also not just a basic question.  I'm here to help either way but thought I would offer the suggestion since it seems you are somewhat new.  Let me know if you have a question about this. :)

Are you trying to put that html in an email message? What does Safari have to do with this?

I don't know any email software or even web based email system that will support Flash.  The script is usually disabled too.  If that is meant to be sent by email you need to simplify the page.  Remove the Flash, object and script.  If there is something important then use the email to encourage the recipient to go to the web.  Provide a URL to that content in a page on your site.

Let me know how this helps.  If I have misunderstood part then please clarify.  Let me know if you have a question about any of this or need other info for this question.
