Use HTML tags directly in Mail messages
Authored by: Viridian on Mar 02, '05 09:32:48AM

Apologies to the submitter, but you don't need to jump through the AppleScript/webpage hoops outlined in this hint. MailPictures is a freeware plug-in that adds a new pane to Mail's Preferences panel, which, among other things, allows you to use HTML tags when you're composing new messages.

Read about its primary features on the website. The feature I find most useful is the fact that under MailPictures "Advanced" tab, there is a checkbox marked "Show options in compose window". This puts three new buttons in compose windows, the most interesting of which (to me) is the third, marked "Message is raw HTML". Check this box when you're writing a new message, and you can simply format it with HTML tags. You can view the message-in-progress by saving it to Drafts and looking at it there. Just don't close the window with the source, or you won't be able to edit it any further. Works like a charm.

Great! I'll try that out! The point of this submission was mainly to inform, and if there's a better way out there: it was too hard to find for 2 people and several years of on-and-off searching: maybe I should have tried a different search string :)
