Hi, listers--

I realize that all right-thinking folk despise HTML emails; however, I
been assigned to build a series of them. So far, what I've been doing is
writing the code and putting the illustrations together, then uploading
page to our corporate website for viewing by the client. I can't send them
out as HTML emails because anything I send out  from my Mac via Outlook
Express gets turned into plaintext. So we have been sending the pages to a
very nice coder in Hawaii who can put them out via Unix.

Now the ante has been upped-- I am now required to send the html emails
myself for approval. From the Mac. To their PCs. Using Outlook Express.
Is there any way I can do this? Or do I have to learn Unix and get another
computer in order to do it?

What kinds of resources are available on the Web to learn this kind of
thing? I have been doing daily searches, and have not found a whole lot
is of use. I'm a graphics person, not a programmer.... Please, help....

For women having problems with PMS or menopausal symptoms:

At the first sign of ovulation (nightmares, irrationality, etc.), start
taking the following:
€ 25 mg vitamin B-6 (one in the morning, one in the evening. It washes out
of the system in eight hours.)
€ 1000 mg Dong Quai (morning and evening)

All month around, take:
€ 1000 mg Evening Primrose Oil (morning and evening)
€ 400 mg vitamin E (at evening meal)

This stuff really works, and avoids messing with your hormones.</tip>

[sorry, not a computer tip, but it may save your marriage.]
