    Don't worry, this is not for spam. I need to explore the option of creating these, but need to know if it's dependent on the user's client setting (I don't recall it being a setting in Outlook). Is it a [recipient's] server setting ? Outgoing server setting ?

    I basically need to guarantee the HTML will render instead of it displaying the code. I'm pretty sure you're going to say there's no guarantee, but as long as I make it as feasible as possible... and the user didn't already know how to turn it off...

    And while I'm at it, there needs to be an image that is a link... are html emails capable of that ?

    You will want to create a Multi-Part Alternative MIME email, with Text, RTF, and HTML parts to it. The email client (if MIME capable) will render the highest level of the email it is capable of rendering. That means that a text-only MIME capable email client will render the text part, whereas an HTML email client will render the HTML part.

    In the case that the recipient is using an email client without MIME capability, they will see the entire email contents displayed, with all three parts. However, the text portion will be displayed first, and they'll probably be used to getting emails in that format.
