HTML Email Templates For Newsletters

HTML email templates make it easy for people with no HTML design experience to create stylish email newsletters that will get the attention of email recipients and look good in most (if not all) email client environments.

HTML email templates for newsletters are actually quite different than those used for web design. Mostly because there are no HTML standards for email. Each email client renders HTML differently, using different sets of HTML standards.

In fact, Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express are still using MS Word as their HTML standard. Of course, they are the only email clients using MS Word as an HTML Standard.

Preparing a Template

When you click on an HTML template to use, a screen will appear for you to enter standard elements on the template. You can complete this information or just leave it blank and click "Continue" to launch the HTML template. You can always edit these elements from within the GroupMail WYSIWYG Message Editor Screen later.

There are a wide variety of HTML email templates to choose from, organized by themes. You can also create your own HTML templates using external HTML editors, such as Dreamweaver. You can easily import those HTML templates (File/Import/HTML Document) into GroupMail and save them (File/Save As/A Template) as user-generated templates.
