that ain't easy. You need to code in tables, use images a lot and use no CSS. Oh and a means of actually sending the mailout.

I'm no expert but I guess it would be because you can't really link to server side CSS files.

Edit -

Or maybe email browsers can't interpret CSS >_>.

It's because some can, some can't, and in some cases, if your email had a style of body{background:red;} and you open it in a webmail client like hotmail, it could make the actual hotmail site's background red.

You need a very basic HTML email template, and then a link to a webpage. Is there a budget for this? i.e. could you outsource it?

Oh I see. But would it be a good thing to learn, just so I know, like for the future. Is it the same process to make a newsletter? If so prob would be advantageous to learn.

If you have a tutorial or anything, would be helpful :)
