    how do you create and send an html email with no attatchments?

    i'd like to send out an html email that doesnt have any attatchments, similar to sitepoint's email newsletter.

    How is this done?

    do you mean the images?

    they would need to be uploaded to your web server and then when adding them to your email, should be typed as <img src="http://www.yoursite.com/image.jpg"> or whatever the location of your image file is. However, most current email clients block automatic image downloads, so your users would have to tell theirs to download the images before they would see them.

    Hope this helped.

    thanks Beau

    that does help. The problem was that i was sending from Outlook Express, and you must first to go through 'Format' and uncheck 'Send Pictures with Message'. This seems to stop hotmail listing the images as attatchments, which is what i wanted

    But sometimes I get emails with pictures in them and Im not asked to download. Maybe they are created with a different app or something?
