HTML color style not showing up message

HTML color style not showing up message

I am using HTML editor 3.02 I have a one page that has a form to that is used to email members of our club. the form action is set to go to another page to send the email message. I am using PHPmailer with Amazon SES to send the message. If I use a color it does not show in the message. It does show in the source of the message but not the message. I am using $_POST to pass the field from one page to the other. Any suggestions?

How are you adding the color? Most likely the color is added as a CSS class, and the .css file can't be referenced from the email message.

You would need to get the css for the color added inline or attach an absolute path to your .css file to the email so that it can be referenced in the body.

I am adding color from the HTML Editor toolbar. At first I didn't think any HTML code was passing then I tried underline and stirke through and that was working, so it seem that just the color is not working. I am on a basic website that I am just starting Webassist did not load any .css files. HTML editor is the only extention I have on this site so far.

Do you know if UE works with Amazon SES yet?

I just noticed that the font size does not pass either when using "size" on the toolbar but it does when you use "format" and change to a "header" style. here is the code from the source email.

This did NOT change the font in the email:

--b1_d2203fd13f042e3a0d5e6ff255184de2
Content-Type: text/html; charset = "iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

<p>
<span style=\"font-size:28px;\"><span style=\"background-color:#ffff00;\">test message&nbsp;</span></span></p>



--b1_d2203fd13f042e3a0d5e6ff255184de2--


This worked like it should, because I used "Header 1"

--b1_558445700dbf30c67970dad32ef42eb6
Content-Type: text/html; charset = "iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

<h1>
test message</h1>
