    Question Email Blasts - My first one

    Hello all. I am new to many things right now, including email blasts. My web partner who was training me recently left the company and he knew more about these than I do. He told me of a site called DropSend to send out email blasts. Im not sure exactly how to make my html/css files into a blast that is sent out. Can anyone lend me any words of advice on these?

    DropSend does email? I thought it was file transfer. Most businesses use ConstantContact or Campaign Monitor or something similar. Myself, I like using the built in mail management in ExpressionEngine, a CMS I use a bunch.

    Anyhoo, if you're going to use a company to do the mailing rather than building your own, they are going to either present you with a basic template or ask you to provide one. HTML templates for the email are waaaaay different than HTML for websites. Campaign Monitor is a great resource for tips:
