    Hi,

    I recently sent out a newsletter to find some ugly things happened.

    1. In Outlook (not Express), it didn't show the line break so it was a total mess of characters.

    2. Hotmail parse the HTML within the document even though it shouldn't have.

    3. Haven't been able to check it with other email clients but I'm quessing from what i got, they don't work too well.


    Does anyone have any information on how to make sure HTML isn't parse, and make line breaks show in all clietns. In general, how to write and send a newsletter.

    Thanx

    Peter

    Are you writing your newsletters in HTML? If so, try using the code tags <code></code>

    Unfortuantely, It must be in plain text as I haven't got information on who can view HTML messages and who can't.
