    Okay I may have mentioned before that I am not very computer smart! So I have a question...I have found a flyer (I think on here) for a Special Halloween Savings, and have changed the info to what it needs to be. Now I wanted to save money on printing and postage and just email them to my customer base. But How do I attach my flyer in the email without actually making it an attachment they have to then open? Is it possible to have it just in the actual email like a picture???? I know I get these all the time from people, I just can't figure out how to do this! If anyone could help I would be very grateful!!! TIA

    If you click File and then Send To and Mail Recipient. It'll open up in Outlook (are you using outlook?) and you can put the recipients in the bcc field.
    I hope that makes sense!

    You pretty much have to have an e-mail server like i-contact to do what you are wanting to do. And then you should actually design it in that program. I know in AOL you can attach a .jpg or .bmp as an attachment that they open or insert it into the actual text of an e-mail message (smaller & not as good of a quality to see/read). But I'm not sure that the free servers like hotmail, yahoo, etc. allow you to do that. Sorry!!!

    Many people will disregard it. Sorry! There's a lot of people out there that just won't take the time to open an attachment. Then you have a few who have a phobia about computer viruses and refuse to open most attachments, even those from family members.

    I procrastinated on doing a newsletter and/or signing up with an e-mail server. I finally broke down & did my first one at the beginning of August. It's already paying off with bookings & one past host who signed as a recruit last month. :D Advertising and keeping your name in front of them is EVERYTHING. I was rear-ended 2 nights ago and am worried that they won't re-use the same glass in the hatchback that has my PC advertising!!! LOL How sad is that???
