Form on email with tick box

Hi,

I want to send an html email out to people for an event that contains a tick box, the idea is that they tick a time slot they would like and reply.

Is this possible, will the tick be retained in the replied email?

It can be done, however there are tons of inherent security risks by allowing something like that. Most email clients will throw a security warning/alert though.

Here's a pretty good article that goes into greater detail:

In all honesty, you'll really want to have the form on a web page rather than in an email.

It's probably the bigger companies that can pull this off the best honestly. Google, Facebook, Adobe, Sony, etc. could probably do something like this and nobody would really question it too much.  The security warnings would still be there, however they would validate from their respective source.

Again, probably better to do a web page for it.
