    Another client (Different than the the one who want's encyrption)
    Wants to create news letter and send it out to say 100 People.

    It doesn't have to be fancy just an HTML email.
    (And she doesn't know Any HTML)

    Anyone out there can recommend some software that creates an HTML Message
    for my client?
    Free is best, this client doesn't have big bucks.
    (Like most of my clients Laugh.)

    Thanks in Advance!

    You just want to create an HTML file easily? I've used WORD in the past to
    make simple HTMLs... Primitive, but easy to use and free if you already have
    WORD. Good luck.

    Heh, I forgot... Since you posted this in SBS2003 forum, I'm assuming your
    client uses SBS? I think it comes with Frontpage :)

    to the correct forum.

  6. Publisher 2k3 is ideal for this purpose.

    Well the Problem with Frontpage is it always drops the images.
    (Or it does for me.)

    It's the way you tag it.

    Yes but the person I'm working with is not smart enough to look at tags...
    (Well let's just say it would be a challenge)

    I Didn't know that Publisher 2003 has it now. (I didn't even look)
    Publisher looks like a good choice, I could probably talk the company into
    buying that for her, since it has more than 1 use.
    Thanks to all who replied...

    Thanks I'm looking at it now..
    looks like a good choice.
    I'll send some text messages to myself and then one to her and see if she
    likes it..

    Well they don't need Publisher to read a HTML email just an email reader
    that can read HTML email.
    (Which Most do nowadays)

    if they send them in .pdf then the user has to download a PDF reader (Adobe
    is 26.8MB)
    that's a lot for some 56k users to download. Yes there are others.

    She just wants a simple solution, She probably doesn't want to create the
    document, then convert it to .pdf then attach it to an email and send it.
    Yes she could get adobe at $900.00

    Publisher is >$150.00 so it's kind of a no brainier. I could teach her how
    to use CutePDF writer it's free.
    Well I'll have to ask her Monday...

    Thanks to all...
