Hi all,

I need to create an e-mail template in Outlook 2010 with some embedded images, sort of an e-news bullletin.

I would like the recievers to get the e-mail with the same format as I design it and preferably with the images visualized.

I would appreciate how this can be done either pointing to some specific help or any direct instructions.

TIA

Thanks for the link.

I have bee following the instructions but when making tests what I send is not what I get.

In the first image you can see the template
 Original e-mail template
and on the second what I am getting when I send an e-mail with that template.

What I get when sending template

What am I doing wrong?

Looks like a message format issue (guessing...).

Could you check what was the message format of your template, and what was the message format of the received email.

Note: message format might be "HTML", "RTF" or "plain text"...

Do you have AVg (or other anti-virus) which writes a notofocation at the end of the mail?
If so, could you check the following:

The AV we've got is an entreprise solution and does not write notifications at the end of the e-mail.

Just checked an all my html e-mails are received as text.

I have to check my Outlook 2010 setup as I recently updated it from Outlook 2007.

I suppose it won't be possible to disable the AV just to check whether the AV is indeed the issue, right?

Some options:
1) Tools > Trust Center > Email Security > uncheck 'read all messages as plain text'.
2) AV: http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3269993&SiteID=17

Things to check:
1) If ou have webmail access, try accessing the mail through webmail (before outlook downloads it)
    This might help check whether ths issue is related to outlook receiving the message.
2) Try sending the template to someone else and check whether they receive the mail as HTML format.

Problem is in origin. Sends as text when it's marked as HTML.

Downloaded free e-mail marketing software at www.sendblaster.com.

I will be using it instead of Outlook for these sort of e-mails.

Tanks

No correct answer from anyone. Had to search for third party software vendors.
