A script to help send HTML email via Mail.app
Authored by: leenoble_uk on Mar 02, '05 12:10:05PM

HTML email wouldn't be so bad if there was an easier way to provide a plain text alternative.
I just tried out the MailPictures plugin and yes it does do HTML but it doesn't send any plain text alternative.

In the past when I've wanted to send an HTML email I either have to use my own PHP script and run it off my server or use a bulk mailing application. I recommend DirectMail. Just paste in your HTML and your plain text and click send. Does what it says on the tin. You don't have to use it for spamming people.

So, I said ... well, I can't actually remember exactly what I said. But it was one of the most enormously cruel and frighteningly witty put downs ever.

Netscape 4.7 could do it...
Authored by: hamarkus on Mar 02, '05 02:08:27PM

Not a really convenient solution, but it works:

In Netscape 4.7 (under Classic) one can choose 'Insert Link' when composing a message. Upon sending one is asked whether one wants to send a HTML-only, text-only or both HTML and text e-mail.

Direct Mail Wipes out New Windows in Finder
Authored by: peterrosen on Mar 02, '05 10:02:57PM

I download Direct Mail and was going to drag and drop an image onto its interface from the finder. Command N failed to open a new window in the Finder. Now Finder doesn't respond to command N, even after quitting DM???

I must restart and quit all my open programs, what a pain... is anyone else having a problem? I am in 10.3.8 on AL 1.25 powerbook with 748K Ram.

I was reading about MAIL.APP in MacINtouch not opening windows when replying to a message. Do you think reading that has caused my Finder to fail? BTW, I have also experienced the same Mail.app issue: http://www.macintouch.com/mail.app11.html#mar02.

Can someone help me find my finder windows?

LOL :-(
