Still having a hard time with this HTML email thing. I've created a very simple page in PageMill: 1 image with 2 hotspots (links) and a line of text. The page displays properly in any browser and the links work. But when I use the Apple script referenced in my other thread, the email does not display the image. Yet the links are there and work.<br><br>When I go to Source Mode in PageMill and edit the path for the image to make it an absolute URL, the image no longer displays in PageMill.<br><br>So what am I missing? HTML guru's, please step forward.<br><br>

Not an HTML guru (or even a novice), but are you using RTF instead of Text formatting in Mail? It seems to make a difference. I've also noticed that Mail doesn't always show the proper formatting in the compose window, but does in the sent message. Try saving as draft and then view the draft copy.<br><br>BTW: Spend the $35 and get RapidWeaver<br><br>
Mail is not even part of this. Forget about the email program because not everyone uses the same one anyway. If you're doing it correctly, the images will NOT show up in PageMill. This is because the images should be housed on a web server somewhere. Think of it this way, the email you're sending is like a post with pictures here at MacMinute. You have to put the entire address of the image in your post or we all get a question mark or red x where the image should be... but you see it fine because it's on YOUR computer. But if you were to save the post to your hard drive for offline viewing, you no longer have access to the image, so you see the placeholders.

Dangit Giz! Leave it to you to have the answer. Between not fully understanding HTML and being spoiled by WYSIWYG, I just assumed that a no-show in the editor meant a no show period. So I entered the absolute URL in source mode, and presto, a perfectly serviceable HTML email.<br><br>Tanx, man. <br><br>

You are imbedding images into e-mail by HTML? You should make sure it looks OK with image viewing turned off because no sane person would have that turned on. Right now that would be be very foolish on a PC with the WMF exploit out there. Even on a Mac it is still an easy way for someone to verify that a real person received and opened sent mail. Information that you do not want to send a spammer.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>(__*__)
