I send around 200 emails a day to our clients. The message is a bill laid out to allow the recipient to enter some additional details and then forward it to their client. The images are a combination of company logo and of photos of work we've undertaken. The work I had to do to make it work for Outlook was as described (HTML Tables with limited CSS). It works nicely in Outlook 2003+, Thunderbird, Outlook Express. For those with a problem, I have a link to the online version. I use PHPGuru's RMail (similar to PHPMailer). But hit and miss would certainly be how I'd describe getting it working for Outlook 2007. -- Richard Quadling Twitter : EE : Zend @RQuadling : e-e.com/M_248814.html : bit.ly/9O8vFY -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
