Hi,

We currently have a system where we create invoices using MS Word and email them as attachments to clients.

We want to change this so the invoices are embedded into the emails and are not attachments.

Any have any suggestions of the best way to do this?

A plain text invoice won't be as pretty as what you can do with Word. They work though.
You can make some very functional ASCII layouts for your mail. If any of my vendors sent me an HTML e-mail invoice I think I'd have to have a word with them though. ;)

In bigger companies they will ask for a separate file a lot of the time. A Word or PDF file is simple to save on a server to be retrieved by anyone. E-mail systems vary from company to company and you may be inconveniencing some of them.

After posting the message I started playing around with ASCII layout and came up with something that wasn't too bad and fairly easy to read.

Anyone have a good suggestion of somewhere to look for ASCII layout pages?
