Send an Email Newsletter to my clients

Hi there!

I want to send an email newsletter to my clients kind of like the emails that webassist sends to me with special offers. I'm not sure where to start.

I created a new html document and made it what I want it to look like. Now how do I send it to someone using outlook 2007? Is there a way to just insert the dreamweaver page content into an email body? Or do I have to upload the page to my webserver and link to it? It contains basic images, text and links back to my web site.

Please answer as detailed as possible as this is uncharted territory for me.

Thanks!

Grant

It may be possible to send html emails from your mail client but this is not something I'm familiar with. How I usually send this type of email is by creating a page in the site and applying Universal Email to the page. You can then choose the html page you have crafted as the body of the message.

Getting the message sent to the rite people is another part of this. If you apply UE to a page that has a form in it, and the form has an input for you to enter the email address you can use the lightning bolt icon in the Universal Email server behavior for the to address to select the text input from your form. This way the email will be sent to the email address that you enter into the form. It would be a good idea to make sure this page is secure so that your page is not used as a spamming tool.

Please post back with your thoughts on this and I will try to get you headed in the right direction.

Thanks for the guidance.

This turned out to be easier than I thought it would be.

Open up a new email and go to the paperclip to insert. When the browse box comes up, single click to highlight the file you want to insert and go to the little down arrow on the insert button and select "insert as text" Voila!

Caution do not embed your images in the .htm document, rather include full "http:/" links to the image placed in your hosted site folder.

Email marketing on the cheap!

Thanks again!
