I’m assuming that you just want something for email, and not a page on web?
I like Mail Chimp for some of my clients; they have a bunch of templates that work well, and they are really easy to use, plus they help with a lot of the more annoying parts of sending out an email newsletter such as subscriptions and mail management.
to clarify, they are an online service and free if you are only sending out a few (less than 2000) emails a month.
My advice is DON’T… but then I configure my servers to refuse to relay e-mails that have HTML in them, since no LEGITIMATE e-mail traffic needs HTML in it and it’s about ten times better a spam block than spamassassin.
A lot of people would disagree with you about legitimate emails not being formatted in HTML. Not saying you’re wrong, necessarily, but I think it’s a bit of a stretch to conclude that any email formatted in HTML is by default illegitimate. Personally, I’m sick of email clients that don’t handle HTML in a modern, clean, valid fashion, with MS Outlook being by far the worst offender.
“Can anyone tell me how to send html emails in outlook 2003?”
It isn’t a great idea if you really have enough folks that putting together a newsletter is a reasonable thing. Outlook doesn’t handle doing hundreds of emails at a time well, IME. I mean, maybe I haven’t done it well, but it doesn’t seem like there is a good way of managing it. You are better off with a third party web application.
“My advice is DON’T”
Is your advice not to send out mass emails in general, or to not use appropriate formatting measures to make the emails easier to read?
The services I use will just go ahead and send a text-based email to your server anyway, so I don’t see the point in not sending HTML to the folks who can handle it.
Its fairly simple to even create a simple HTML template using dreamweaver but if you are looking for excellent results then you will have to learn some advanced HTML and inline css coding skills as with experience you will notice deliverability and comaptibiity with mutiple browsers is the biggest issue with newsletters.
