    The email itself might be around 65K-75K total, depending on what else you wrote on it, coz the file size includes the text ...

      i understand that but i'm not attaching the file to the email all it is is html code which is about 1 line long

      ex: this code below i put in my email leads to a banner which is like 15k in size would putting that code in the email make the email itself 15k bigger

            It depends on your email client. With Outlook Express I just right click on the email and and choose "Properties".

              You might wanna consider in not doing that anyway.

              Many isp/mailservers are implementing new filtering techiniques that scan for content in emails for their users. If it contains html, the message could be dropped at the router.

              rEason is that isp/mailserver admins are tired of having their resources taken up by the "fancy" smancy html,java encoded email messages being sent. And with insecurities of HTML in the first place, malicious code can wreak havoc on end users as well as mailservers.

              ALWAYS send in ASCIi and have a link to an HTML version that can be hosted on your website. Many people are moving away from HTML emails because of the bad reputation they already carry, and you can blame spammers and porn spammers for giving it that.

              I for one, drop any HTML encoded email at the router with a bounce back message to sender that only ASCII / plain text emails will be accepted and should they wish to reach any of my members, they will need to resend.
