If like me you’ve not got around to sending some important cards (whoops) there’s always e-cards. So I didn’t feel so guilty about not getting around to it (or spending anything) I created my own e-card.  Find or create your own image or you could use mine.

You will need:

  • Windows Mail
  • An image, which has been uploaded onto the internet
  • The code

What to do:

  1. Open Windows Mail and click “Create Mail”.   In the “View” menu ensure that “Source Edit” is checked.
  2. Along the bottom of the window, open the “Source” tab and paste in the code.
  3. If you wish to change the image:
    1. Find an image (to get the URL of an image right-click and select “Copy image URL”)
    2. Follow the instruction in the comment (words contained in these symbols: <!–    –>) marked “1.”
  4. To change the message now open the “Edit” tab at the bottom and edit message, font and colour as you please.


Copy the following:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN”>


<META content=”text/html; charset=iso-8859-1″ http-equiv=Content-Type>

<META name=GENERATOR content=”MSHTML 8.00.6001.19170″>




<div align=”center”>

<!–1. If you wish to change the image: Paste the URL inbetween the quotation marks directly following the words img src. Now follow instructions in comment 2.–>
