    Email Newsletter help?..
    Im trying to sent out emails so that I can just dump text(something like 5 Pages documents long) into a templet and hit send. I know Mail has some simple templets, but they don't seem to get any longer than one page. Basically what I need is to send out a weekly news letter, that has some pictures on the edges, basically it has to look some what fancy....

    And I have no idea where to start. Any ideas on what to do? I have considered iContact, but I need a domain in which I can publish a website via iWeb.

    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin


    EDIT: I just discovered to save as HTML in MS Word 2008 for Mac.. Now my question is how to I attached that into an email, so that it isn't an attachment, rather upon up the email and it is there... Thanks

    use grab from your utilites, and select the area you want from the doc and save as an Image, then drag the image into the body of the email
    Mac is like a car, keep clean and up to date and it will give you many hours of good driving

    Nearly every template now also has a whole bunch of design variations, so instead of just 111 designs like in Pack 1 you now get 123 templates with a total of 660 design variations...

    Thanks, and if my school wanted to pay for me to get it I would, but they don't want to.


    Will saving the email as .html and opening it on Safari and then viewing the source code and copy and pasting it into the body of the email work??

    Sure Gmail supports HTML (our templates show up fine).

    But like most webmail services there are a bunch of caveats in its html rendering engine that you need to incorporate in the HTML to make it display correctly.
