Hello,
I have a questions in regards to sending an HTML email.

Actually 2 questions:

1. On VB.org, DBTECH says this: 'Requires <!DOCTYPE in the body of the email '
Does this mean that the doctype needs to go within <body></body>?
2. When sending the HTML email, do you just copy/paste the HTML right into the editor? I've done it this way, and Gmail, and other clients seem to display it for the most part OK. But when you go back to the forum, and click on the 'view past sends' all you see is the HTML. I'm guessing there is another way I'm supposed to be doing this?

Thanks!
Chris

Hey Chris, sorry for the delay :(

Weekends and Mondays are notoriously busy for me, so I don't have time to answer many questions unfortunately :(

1. On VB.org, DBTECH says this: 'Requires <!DOCTYPE in the body of the email '
Does this mean that the doctype needs to go within <body></body>?
No, it would look like this:
[html<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en">
<head>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>[/code]

2. When sending the HTML email, do you just copy/paste the HTML right into the editor? I've done it this way, and Gmail, and other clients seem to display it for the most part OK.

Do you mean you're seeing the HTML without it being parsed?

1. Great, that's what I'm doing currently.
2. Yes on the forum itself, you just see the raw HTML
