    Hi all.I have converted a PSD into HTML by slicing the images and arranging them through tables.Now,when i send this html file through any mass mailing email blasting system then the slices have a horizontal gap between them. What to do? However,when I send it as an ordinary mail then no gaps occurs.Please suggest me with solution.

    I'm not really sure what you mean here. You composed a layout of a site in PS, saved it as a psd, exported the slices?. When you chose the save option, did you decide whether to save the slices only, or did you have it save the HTML too?
    Not really sure what emailing them has to do with anything either.

    I will be more than happy to help you, but I am going to need just a little more info.

    It's possible the system you're using for your blasts is adding extra code to the emails.

    Which system are you using for emails? I used to use Constant Contact and it worked quite well.

    It also depends on which email client you're using. Each one handles mail a little differently. I believe Outlook uses Word and not standard HTML as the basis for its emails.

    Remember that when you're making html emails you need to "code like it's 1995". That means using inline tags instead of css.

    Yes,u r yrt..i have have to use inline css like that only. And i have sorted out this by using style=display:block in <img> tag. I used Campaign Monitor as well as Netcore Solutions for blasting purpose.

    I would stay away even from using inline css. Many email clients do not use CSS at all and will even block it.

    I would stick to the old school formatting methods using inline tags like:

    Code:
    <font size="2">My Font is Big</font>

    The only way to get around the "display images" problem is to not have images in your email. There's nothing you can do to control the client that they're using.

    What you can do, is make sure you're not spamming them and that when you do send an email, it's useful content to them. That way they'll be more willing to read the email and turn on the images.

    I would also place alt tags in your images, so that if they do not view the images, they can at least see some of your message.

    Yes,u were right. Now, i have designed a template using HTML and CSS. I have used a background image and written some text over it. Now,the problem is that the background image was not coming if somebody opens it in Outlook. What I can do? Please suggest me with solution.

    Don't use css in emails. Many clients don't support it. Instead use old school html to define. Wrap your content in a table and set the table background to your image.

    background="image.jpg"
