    <head>
    <title>HipHop and Urban Wear</title>
    </head>
    <body bgcolor="#ffffff">
    <table align="center" border="4" bordercolor="#993366"
    cellpadding="10"
    cellspacing="0" width="500">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td><font color="#993366" face="verdana"><b>
    Ozzys, Scotland!
    </b></font>
    <p>
    <table cellpadding="5">
    <tbody>
    <tr valign="top">
    <td>
    <a href="www.ozzys.co.uk"><img
    src="http://www.g3designs.org/ozzys/ozzylogo2%20copy.jpg"></a></td>
    <td><font face="verdana" size="-1">
    <b>Texts
    </b><br>
    Some texts
    </font></td>
    </tr>
    <tr valign="top">
    <td>
    <a href="www.ozzys.co.uk"><img
    src="http://www.g3designs.org/ozzys/ozzylogo2%20copy.jpg"></a></td>
    <td><font face="verdana" size="-1">
    <b>texts
    </b><br>
    texts
    </font></td>
    </tr>
    <tr valign="top">

    texts
    </font></td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>
    </p>
    <p><font face="verdana">
    tests
    </font></p>
    <p></p>
    <center><font face="verdana"><b><a

    <hr>
    <font face="verdana" size="-2"></font>

    was totally under the impression that, you could just use normal html in an email and if you got it setup in your inbox to execute the html it would read any html especially if its as basic as that ;/

    You need to make sure the mailheader says it's HTML.

    You can't send HTML through anything unless you do it manually. E-mail clients will convert the HTML to the literal strings rather than HTML tags.

    What you can do is use Outlook or similar and compose a message in HTML format by hand (ie using the interface with the bold, image buttons etc)

    save your page in the outlook stationary folder and then just use the "new mail using" tab and select your page

    might be worth a try, better off using php or asp to do it instead...

    nice of them to hide it out of the way though... not like its usefull or anything

    actions > new mail using > more stationery (one day i will learn to spell i promise)

    make sure you set all your image link borders to "0" and add the http:// before your links and it should work first time
