Dreamweaver is NOT an e-mail client, and by itself cannot do what you are looking to do. You will need to learn PHP and MySQL, and set up a dedicated server to handle and track the traffic through a database.
What about using DW to design a page for email. How can I get the html into email to send as professional looking email.
First read this:
Use an email service like Constant Contact or iContact that gives you stats about your email blasts.
Put Google Analytics on your web pages to see where traffic comes from and if it's converting to sales.
OK. I can send the HTML page as email, open and and view it perfectly within my email (Outlook 2007). When I open it with Entourage, the images are missing even though I have image download selected. I click on the video link and I get a window that reads "This link might be part of a phishing attempt" What could be causing these issues?
any help is greatly appreciated.
1) You didn't read the link I gave you.
2) You can't attach images, video files or other media to emails. 98% of these files will get blocked for one security reason or another.
3) Do use absolute links to images on your web server.
4) Do provide a text link in your email to an actual web page for people who can't see HTML in their email client.
