My client just dropped in my lap that he wants to send emails that look like mini-webpages from the site.
I was under the impression this was possible as I receive many emails like this myself from blogs and companies.
However, after I designed the content for the message in Dreamweaver CS3 and copied it into the compose area for the email and tested it all I could see was the code.

I tried using the "rich text" formatting and the "plain text" formatting but neither worked.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Look at the source of one of the emails that you received.

I have checked out the source codes of some of the emails - but I think its more of an issue of the source code not going INTO the email properly.
If that makes sense.

What mail client are you using?

The GoDaddy email client.
They claim it works with Firefox 5 - but as far as I am aware the latest version of Firefox is 3 something.
Any help would be grand.

Just do what I do, make the page on the web and copy the source code over also then you have on of those "Click here to see this page of the web" links after all not all email clients allow html emails (I've never actley come across one that wont but I've been told there out there)

Maybe... you have to specify the mail content type... my SMTP class that I use uses Content-Type: text/html; charset=windows-1251 (In the headers part of the mail) and that works fine with HTML...
