    Hi,

    I need an e-mail software that can handle html, I mean, a client asked me for an e-mail news letter with pictures and stuff, just like the Apple News Letter

    ¿What software can I use to do that under 9 or X?

    Thank you very much.

    You can use anything that will create HTML, and then send out the page as an attachment from your e-mail client. You just have to make sure that all of the images that you use are on a remote server, and link to them on the server when you create the page. I can use Dreamweaver to do this, GoLive, Freeway, etc. will do this too. If you know HTML, you can also just type out the code in a word processing application that supports HTML export.

    Did this help?

    edit: Additionally, to test it, just e-mail it to yourself - it will look like you're sending the file but when you receive it, the html will show up, not just the file.

    I did that already, I took a web site, save it as a Web Archive in Explorer and attached the file to a mail. I sent it to myself and I got it as an attachment!

    I haven't attach html documents like that bucause I do not know how to asign the pictures if they are in the web.

    I just wrote to a friend and he told me there are applications for that.

    Write a Java program to send data to SMTP. The pictures still have to be accessible through the web, AFAIK.

    Depending on your needs, an ASP (Application Service Provider) might be a better solution?

    Here's one that offers a free personal/trial service: http://www.mymailout.com/

    We use it for our industry-related monthly newsletterm, and it works like a charm.

    HTH!
