    before Yosemite I would create HTML emails using Coda and then open them up in Safari and then File -> Share -> Share as email. This would open a new mail message with my HTML file rendered in the body of the email as a webpage.

    Now when I follow these same steps in Yosemite the mail message opens up blank.

    I do not want to send through Mailchimp or the like because these are one-off emails that I customize before sending to each recipient.

    Help!

    Works for me, but it takes a few moments for a page to pop-up in the e-mail.

    Maybe Coda is the issue? Maybe creating not quite kosher HTML that Yosemite likes (or maybe Yosemite has "fixed" some things in its browser engine)? So, pick some website or two and see if that works: if so, might be that Coda program generating something odd.

    Something else to try: bring up the custom e-mail html in Safari, save out as webarchive, then reread in and try mailing that (maybe Safari will "clean-up" the html into something mail might understand).
