I should know this, so sorry if this is a dumb question. How do I create html e-mails? I have Googled this to death and still cannot figure it out.

Is it just a matter of writing the html code directly into an e-mail? Because that hasn't worked for me. I've tried it in Outlook with html formatting turned on, and it didn't work.

I know there may be issues with which e-mail client I am using, whether it be Outlook or Gmail or whatever.

Basically I need to put together a newsletter with a banner and links, etc. Please help!

I too am late to the topic, but if you want to send HTML/formatted mail via Outlook Express 6, you can:

1) Create a new message
2) Click on View -> Source Edit
3) There appear tabs which show the Source and Preview
4) Simply copying pasting the html in the source pane does it for me!
