Email Problem

Likes # 0

I want to advertise something I have for sale via a Email to a large number of people in my address book (Outlook 2003. Problem is that when I build the mail in a 'new mail message' and include photographs and fancy text, when I test send it I can see that it comes out differently when the recipient opens it.

Is there any way of keeping the formatting the same upon opening?

could be your sending as TEXT and you need to send as HTML.

But bear in mind that if you send in html then some of your recipients may have set their e-mail client to read plain text only.

I don't think that there is a way round this.

Do you want to just sell it to people in your address book? If not why not use something like Gumtree and send to the people in your address book a link to the ad.
