If you have access to a Unix box with sendmail, a *very* easy way to do
it is like so: Create a file called mail.html with contents something
like this:

From: you at foo.com
To: yourhomey at homeyland.com
Subject: simple HTML email
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: inline; filename="mail.html"
Content-Base: http://www.foo.com/

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"
        <TITLE>Test email</TITLE>
<strong>This is a test HTML Message</strong>

Save it, then from the command line, enter 'sendmail -t < mail.html'
(without the quotes). That will send your message to everyone listed in
the To: field(sperate multiple entries with commas)

Easy cheesy :)
