HTML mail - tables/scripts/tricks
I am still a plain text guy, mostly, but we are finding more and more use for HTML messages. For example, we output a small database report to a set of HTML tables and embed these directly in a message.
How?! It took a while to figure out, and perhaps there's an easier way, but we create a new message, change the format to HTML, click in the body, and use the attach function. BUT, instead of just clicking the insert button, we carefully press the associated drop-down arrow and choose insert as text. If the attachment is a valid HTML document (or at least valid enough), it will embed itself into the "source" for your message.
