How do I create HTML email?
e-Campaign has a WYSIWYG ("What You See Is What You Get") HTML editor, and you can create HTML messages with ease.
Can I create HTML messages using my favorite HTML editor such as Microsoft FrontPage, DreamWeaver?
To import an HTML file from your local computer, click the icon.
To import a webpage from a website, click the icon, then enter the URL (eg. http://www.oreilly.com )
Why should I provide a plain text version for HTML email?
HTML email can contain richer information than its plain text counterpart. However there are people who still use text only email programs. This is especially true for those in the Unix world.
When you prepare an HTML email, you can also provide a plain text version of the message. e-Campaign will deliver a multipart email (containing both an HTML and a plain text version). For most people who use HTML-capable email clients, the HTML version of your message is displayed. And for those who use text-only email clients, the plain text version is displayed.
How do I determine whether a recipient's email program supports HTML?
With e-Campaign, this is not a concern.
When you compose an HTML email, just specify a plain text version. And all your recipients will get the right version of your email.
