Sending html email from Outlook 2007
I know this topic has been explored by others recently, but I still don't get it.
I'm running Vista with Outlook 2007; I get html formatted email all the time. But when I try to send it, I just see my source code (as when I test it by sending it to myself).
My basic strategy is to use the <table> element and inline styles to code a very basic page with a couple of graphic images inside the <td> elements. The addresses are absolute path spec.s to the folder on my web server where the graphics are sitting. The "message" as a basic html page displays fine in a browser.
Here is the code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<table cellpadding="5px" cellspacing="5" >
<td colspan="3"><img src="http://www.captsigerson.com/cruise/cruise_head.png" /></td>
<td><img src="surf.jpg" /></td><td><img src="http://www.captsigerson.com/cruise/cabin.jpg" /></td><td><img src="dine.jpg" /></td>
<td colspan="3"><h3>Come join us this Fall for a Royal Carribean Cruise. Five and seven day<br /> specials
priced from $800 to $1500 per person!!</h3></td>
<td colspan="3"><img src="http://www.captsigerson.com/cruise/cruisefoot.png" /></td>
Can anyone advise me as to where I can go from here?
Open your file in Internet Explorer. Then, select Tools : Send Page by Email. That should open Outlook, then type in the email address. Works for a handful, much beyond that, you need a mail script.
Hey there! thanks. It worked!! the 'send page by email' was under the File.
I wanted to ask you, if it had not worked and I would have had to go to a "mail script" what exactly is a "mail script" that you referred to.
Firefox has a neat add-on to send a complete web page. Other options are also available, For future reference for HTML Emails:
