Need Help.... I would like to create a newsletter to be sent via email so that it shows up in the message section of the email graphically. Can you tell me what software is best for creating newsletters for both email and web purposes. Also, can you tell me how to set it up in the email message area so that anybody can see it no matter what their computer is set on

There is no 100% reliable way to do this, never has been. And with the increasing torrent of viruses, malware, and spam that all can be spread via the same mechanisms that allow for formatting in email, an increasing number of people are wising up and disabling this feature. \

Administrators of email servers are also growing increasingly impatient with formatted email messages, considering they bloat the size of the message at least two fold, usually more.

I would urge a rethink of the entire design so that it relies only on plain text. You could include a link to a web page that has the more graphical rendition if you like. That way, you're not clogging up people's inboxes with messages they may not be able to see properly for whatever reason, you're doing your part to help reduce the amount of needless traffic clogging up the Internet, and you let your readers choose for themselves if they want to follow the link to the website that has the more graphic intensive version.

I would like to create a Email Newsletter myself. Any sugguestions how to do this. Does anyone have a template that can be used in Outlook 2003 and below? I know Outlook 2007 has it, but to much of a upgrade for me. Any ideas? Thanks

Even at our office we strip email back to plain text. If you sent us a "pretty newsletter" we would see only the text and no pictures except as attachments.

Why work that hard when you could have your newsletter on a web page and just drop a email with the link to the newsletter web page?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
