Damn, what a flame war I've started! I had no idea... In any case, Richard: I agree that HTML e-mails, generally speaking, suck. The most HTML I **personally** think should be in an e-mail is a quick link to a web page, maybe a bit of text coloration/sizing for emphasis.
However, **professionally**, I'm looking at something completely different. I run a small web services business looking for any form of cash possible, and a local portal site has offered to promote on their site an HTML e-mailing system that we create -- and they have customers *begging* for it. While I as an individual may despise HTML e-mail, I as a businessman cannot turn down such an obvious revenue-generation stream, especially in today's economy. I came to the list looking for technical help because it's something that I need to do, not something I want to promote. Whatever my motives may have been, though, there's no reason to launch such a tirade on the subject on-list -- if you want to bitch and moan and flame, it's just as easy to do off-list. Please, please, let's kill this thread and all the animosity going with it -- *especially* since I've been kindly pointed in all the directions needed for technical help.
