HTML Emails: For Senders

Definition…

HTML emails are not formatted with plain text, but with HyperText Markup Language, the coding language used to create Hypertext documents for use on the World Wide Web.

Why Use It?…

HTML emails allow you to be creative! Some of the available options include background colors, formatted text, and graphics such as pictures and clip art. You can even insert animated graphics.

Too Much of a Good Thing?…

HTML email should be used in moderation: for special occasions, invitations, or times when you want something eye-catching. Use plain text for general use email.
