    Question Sending HTML document in Email, NOT as attachment?

    Howdy all!

    Im trying to send a HTML page as an email in Outlook 2000, i can get the page into the email no problems. However i cant embed the images in the email which means that when someone get the email , they dont get know pics.

    Anyone know how to embed the images into the email itself so theyre accessible in the HTML?

    Cheers

    Upload the pics to some webspace and instead of referring to the file locally link to the webspace?

    So instead of: <img border="0" src="images/me.jpg"width="xxx" height="xxx">

    Try <img border="0" src="http://www.webspace.com/me.jpg"width="xxx" height="xxx">

    Should work!

    thanks for the reply!

    Thats how i normally do it but the company this is for dont want their bandwidth eaten up

    it seems dumb to me as emailing the thing to x amount of people is going to use their bandwidth as well

    Random, surely it doesn't matter if the bandwidth is used up by emailed the site or putting it on some webspace?! It'll be the same amount of bandwidth used either way. Maybe you should explain this to them

    in fact it would be more bandwidth to email it as you only people that read the mail will download the gfx

    surely if you send the images as attachments, they'll get stored in the same folder as the e-mail. Make the image references direct (so they refer to the current folder).

    Might work.

    Who knows?

    The files are sent as an attachment and kept on the clients email server (hotmail/buisness etc..) So it'd have to send the files anyway, so no it wouldnt take more bandwidth!

    Yea, good point Angus, how are you sending the webpage. Are you trying just to send the html page itself or are you sending the whole folder containing the site?

    If its the latter you may just be linking to the image incorrectly.

    hehe unfortunately its just a single page with about 20 pictures (not my design, i aint that stupid )

    ill try and worm out of it on monday - the time spent means the job is not feasible with the amount of money they're paying (translation: i cant be arsed with the hassle for the pissy amount of money)

    Thanks guys!
