    I have an html file setup with images. How do I send this in an email? It's for a newsletter.

    The images need to be stored someplace online.

    Within the HTML, you need to specify the URL for each image.
    Example: <img src="http://www.mysite.com/photos/image1.jpg">

    You then use some sort of email client (Outlook or whatever) to create
    the HTML email. Then send it.

    The recipient must be online to see the images, and they must have their
    email client configured to accept HTML emails (not everyone does, or knows how).

    About the images ...

    The images don't get sent with the email (only the HTML part).
    That's why you need to have them available online.

    Ok. That's what I was thinking. How do I set up an html email in Entourage?

    Do you mean send an html e-mail or allow html e-mails to be received?

    To send an html e-mail, create yourself a web page of what ou would like to say and make sure all images are using html tag <img src etc.. and not in the css , also be sure to add the width and height attributes

    then you need to open safari -> file -> mail contents of this page

    if that doesn't work find yourself a pc and use internet explor -> send page by e-mail

    i think firefox has an add-on to e-mail webpages to..

    link to it https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/886

    Look into Multipart Mime messages if you have facility to do them, that way the receiving client can decide the best version to show according to it's settings.
    I've found this works pretty well.

    Edit - Sorry, what I mean is - to avoid them receiving an email with loads of html in it if they can't recive html email, you use Multipart Mime which allows the receiving client to choose the plain text version if they can't receive html. Graceful degradation I guess....

    Well that seems to work how I want it. With that Firefox plugin can you choose not to have all the other information in it when you send it (like the sender's name etc.)?

    You're pretty good. Most people don't notice that till I tell them.

    Inline styles and absolute paths are essential. Just know when you design any newsletter that less really is more. Most of the time your layouts get disabled by the mail client. Newsletters, just like getting websites to load in all browsers can be tricky, but fairly simple if you know what you are doing. mlseim hit the nail on the head with the general protocol involved.
