Using HTML to create e-mail messages gives you the flexibility to alter their design and readability. Some businesses send HTML e-mails to brand and market their products and services. While there are people who argue plain-text e-mails are more efficient and more secure than their HTML counterparts, HTML e-mails are now ubiquitous as the vast majority of e-mail clients support HTML encoded messages. With just a few alterations in the software settings, the Microsoft Entourage:Mac e-mail client allows you to send complex HTML messages to your e-mail's recipients.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Select the "Tools" drop-down menu in the Microsoft Entourage:Mac toolbar. Click on "Accounts ..." and double-click on the name of the email account you'll be sending the HTML message from.

  2. 2

    Select the "Options" menu in the "Edit Account" window. Click in the space below the "Header" field, and type "content-type." Click under the "Value" field and type "text/html." Click on the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.

  3. 3

    Open a new message window, fill out the address and subject fields, and add any attachments you are sending along with the message.

  4. 4

    Insert HTML code in the message body field.

  5. 5

    Click on the "Format" drop-down menu in the toolbar and make sure the "HTML" option is unchecked, to disable automatic HTML formatting.

  6. 6

    Hit the "Send" button, and your HTML message will be broadcast to your e-mail's recipients.

Tips and warnings

  • Some e-mail clients don't support HTML messages. Any e-mail recipient whose e-mail software does not support HTML will not see the intended design of your HTML e-mail message.
