    using html tags sending email

    Can someone tell how to send email with html tag. Before this I try to send email which I want to add my picture as a background. So wat I do is I use body tag and put background=mypic". But wat happen is wat I have type all gone. I mean it seem like I just send empty email. So my question is isn't possible to have a html tag in ur email. Just trying to make my email fancy. Well may be I want to create a link to my email add so he/she can reply my email by just click link I had create. So any help would be appreciate.Thank q

    if its sent with text and html, the otherside also has to be able to view text and html emails.
    does the pic send when you send the mail?
    could you use <a href="mailto:me@here.com>click here to email me</a> with IE and Outlook.
    Hmm...theres something a little peculiar here. Oh i see what it is! the sentence is talking about itself! do you see that? what do you mean? sentences can\'t talk! No, but they REFER to things, and this one refers directly-unambigeously-unmistakably-to the very sentence which it is!

    Ok let say I want to put a picture as a background so from html that I learn I will put like this
    <body background="mypic">
    so after this I write my msg
    </body>
    isnt it work it I do like this. I try it before but seem like fail.He can't see my msg either. or should I just do it like this
    <background="mypic">
    my msg

    And one more thing I wondering sometime (dunno may be connection fail or sth, we able to see the code.) But I'm wondering why every line have div. Wat I know is div command for division but why should we put it. If I'm not wrong with/without div still produce the same output. But tell me if Im wrong
    Thank YOu

    if your using outlook, go to 'format>>background>>fill effects' and select the tab for picture. Choose the pic you want to use for the background. This way the pic will be mailed as part of the message. the same thing can be accomplished with a word document or using star office

    Making an html page will not give the message sent, availability to the graphic to display it, unless its on a server on the net and you give the URL as the img source

    this is what outlook has to say about this

    <HTML><HEAD>
    <META content="text/html;" http-equiv=Content-Type>
    <STYLE></STYLE>
    </HEAD>
    <BODY background="mypic.fileExtension">

    ...message here...

    <BODY>
    </HTML>


    where fileExtension is a member of the known picture file extensions .gif .jpg ........

    when your friend gets the mail, can he/she view the source of the mail, and if so, is the message you sent viewable in the source? if so, then the problem might lie with what your friend is using to view the email. if not, then scream for help again...

    this is what outlook does:

    <body bgcolor=white background="cid:image001.jpg@01C27AA2.CC136930" lang=EN-US
    style='tab-interval:.5in'>
    <img src="cid:image001.jpg@01C27AA2.CC136930"
    v:src="cid:image001.jpg@01C27AA2.CC136930" v:shapes="_x0000_Mail"


    it include the picture with the message in such a way as to be able to display it.

    upload the image to the internet, like to a post you make somewhere, right click on the link for downloading it, copy short cut, and past it in as the source for the background image
