HTML in CRM 4.0 emails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to insert HTML into crm 4.0 emails/email templates?

    I've tried to put an iframe, but it just displays the html code.

    I've also noticed that this works: <a href="http://www.google.co.uk">link</a>
    But this doesn't work: <a href="www.google.com">link</a>

  • I don't get the iFrame part...

    You have to render the html doc, copy and paste it into the template.

    What I want to know is how you can then open it up to imbed attribute fields for "personalization" of links and teenies.

    I was trying to use the Iframe to display an asp.net page in the email. That would have been easier to handle (for me), but now I've been told that is what I need to do. The advantages of this, is that we are trying to get feedback on emails, so if we need to change the form been used, we just change it on our site and anyone who hasn't done it yet will see the updated version when they open the email, rather than old imbedded html. Plus we want code behind it too.

    I know the question has changed, but that's what I'm looking to do now.

  • I can't swear to it but it doesn't make any sense to me.  Asp/aspx's need IIS to process them.  They're not client side like jscript.  And even if they were, you can't expect an email to process jscript either.  Html emails are about formating and hyperlinks.  I don't think you can code them.  Now, making an aspx the target of a link on your email is a different story.  But now you're off the email and into the request/response mechanism of the internet.

    And I could be wrong.
