Newsletters let you broadcast an array of facts, announcements and information about your life, business or organisation. The documents, created using a design or word processing package, also include photographs, borders and other graphical elements. To get your newsletter to more readers, embed the document within an e-mail for broadcasting to individuals in your computer's address book as well as to anyone who has an e-mail address. You can even embed a newsletter containing website links, photographs and graphics.

Tips and warnings

  • To test your newsletter e-mail before sending it to others, send the email to your e-mail address first to check the photographs, graphics and other elements. If changes are needed, return to the newsletter file, make the changes and click "Edit," "Select All." Click "Edit," "Copy" to copy the contents. Then complete steps in the "Pasting & Sending the Newsletter" section to send the email newsletter.
  • If your newsletter contains embedded website links, photographs or graphics, your e-mail application's outgoing e-mails must be set to "HTML" and not "Plain Text." This setting is under "Tools" in stand-alone e-mail applications. If using a web-based e-mail application, click on the "HTML" link on the new e-mail message's toolbar above the message box.
