Re: on email e-zines using HTML and graphics

nothing that Ive figured out so far. Im up to almost 30,000 subscribers to my newsletter and im still struggling with the HTML / Text argument.

i studied up on it a bit and discovered the 'MIME part' emails... basically u send a newsletter which is in the HTML + the Text format... the recipients email client is then supposed to decide whether it wants to display HTM or Text. Sounded great in theory.. in practice it fell flat.

Problem occured because only sophisticated email clients can read the MIME part emails.. and for us, the problem was never the new clients. The ones that can read MIME can read HTML as well so its not an issue.

So anyways.. the best i discovered was that you send either HTML or Text depending on the amjority of ur users. + you create a space where your users can decide whether they want th etext version or the HTML version and then u email the 2 sets separately...

That's my 2 cents. :o) Hope it helps.
