How are these created?

Not sure if this is in the right section!

Anyway, I'm sure everyone has received e-mails in their inbox that have graphics intergrated into them.

I was wondering if anyone knew how these were made/created, as I want to sent mailshots to my clients about special offers - but want a good looking e-mail flyer rather than just a plain text message.

Would I be right in saying that it's just a website intergrated into an e-mail?

That is about the extent of it. Almost all email clients today can read HTML language, and the emails that I have seen like that have just been HTML emails.

Thanks, could you tell me how this are created?

I can design websites but when it comes to intergrating them into an e-mail I'm confused!

Only when I allow them. Microsoft Outlook by default (with spam prevention) is going to block those images from showing.

HTML Email is a somewhat risky proposition these days due to all the restrictions in place because of email spam. Many have their HTML email turned off so they won't get to see the graphics. What they may end up with is a message that has a bunch of attachments which contain the graphics used in the email.

HTML Email is also a major security risk, especially over the past 6 months. Many new exploits are being taken advantage of and opening one of those HTML emails without protection in place could cause damage to your system.

So, be careful!

If you are doing email campaigns, you'll most likely have software available to you that allows you to send both text based and html based email. If the user does not have html email setup, they will see the text version and vice versa.

In addition to above comment i can recommend 'Group Mail' is ideal for email marketting if your not a php / MySQL .

i personally use 'Gourp Mail' to deliver HTML / Plain mails to my subs.
