HTML code for email

I have designed an email in Freeway Express. Another company is going to send this out for me to thousands of people. I have sent them the email by uploading my site with the email page, opening page in Safari from Freeway, and asking Safari to mail contents of page. So far, so good.

But I was just asked to email them the HTML code as an attachment. I opened the email page in Safari, used Safari’s Develop Menu, and went to Show Page Resources. Now, is that what they want? And if so, how could I best email that to them?

I am on a deadline with this…Thank you very much for your help!!

Just checking. Did you apply the Create Email Action to the page? This will ensure that your design will work as well as possible in all major email clients.

Yes, I did.

On that idea: I sent it to someone and they wrote back by return email. When I looked at my returned email in Mac’s Mail, I noticed the Futura font in html boxes was changed to Helvetica. Also, my links had blue lines beneath them that I hadn’t put there. The link mouseover (become bold and italic) that I had built in did not work. Is there any way to prevent changes like that from happening?

Don’t use external stylesheets (if you did). Use neutral fonts for HTML, like verdana, helvetica, arial, etc … futura is a kinda specific font. Specially when working on emailing, stick to ‘Office’-safe fonts, or use gif-text when you want to go tropical.

Thanks. I somehow thought the 8 fonts available in Freeway for HTML items were supposed to be pretty universal. (Futura is one of them.) If I use gif-text instead, does that create any other problems for viewers? And is it true that if I’m using gif-text, I cannot have certain words work as links (just the whole graphic)?

I made, within the last years, a bunch of emails (100+). Here is how it works in ALL major clients.

  1. Code your HTML email in XHTML 1.0 Transitional. There’s not much point in putting anything else in the of the document but the “Content type” and the title, so here’s the basic structure of your HTML email. You can use tables. You should use % for widths.

  2. Us the remote ressource action for absolute paths.

2 : DO NOT use padding, margin or floats round images

  1. Load the newsletter up to a webadress

  2. IMPORTANT: Do a PREFLIGHT here. It will fix errors: http://premailer.dialect.ca/

  3. You can, if you want, check your mail also here: http://validator.w3.org/

  4. Copy the clean code.

  5. Use it in your mailprogram

  6. Shot it out.
