Hello,

I need some help and suggestions for creating HTML intendid to email to my clients. Someone I am testing with, he has a Yahoo mail account. He says that the test email I send him, that there are no images. I'm wondering if I need a doctype adjustment or other. The original email (HTML Page) is XHTML compliant. I am using CDONTS to create and send the email from my server. The resulting HTML (as it appears in Outlook) has been bastersized somewhat and is NOT xhtml compliant. However, it looks ok as I see it in Outlook. He doesn't see it well at all when looking at it in Yahoo's online webmail application.
Here is a link to the original email that I am sending:

Thanks for the help.

Karl: My simple advice would be don't do it. I'm not sure if anyone apprreciates receiving HTML email instead of plain text especially if they haven't opted in to it.

They've opted in.
Alternatively, I can offer them a link to the above campaign in an email, but would really like to get this thing to look nice in an email.

All right, how about sending a multi-part email? Is this an easy task? I've trying to find information on this to send multi-part email using CDONTS but have not much luck.
