Some of our customers requested us to provide an enhancement to the OfficeClip Contact Manager so that they are able to create campaigns using the Microsoft Word® and be able to send them using the html email supported in OfficeClip.
One way is to do this is to create a Word campaign and then export it to html. This creates a few issues:
- The html created by the word document is not clean and can cause problems in many email clients
- The images are stored in a different folder and so they cannot be sent via email resulting all the graphics to be replaced by placeholders
- Most of the email clients switches off external files (for privacy reasons) unless it is from trusted source.
Fortunately Microsoft Word® provides a way to export the compiled html file (called .mht file), this file can then be loaded in the OfficeClip Campaign application and can be sent as a campaign.
