Emailing Form Results in HTML

Rob

Hi,

I have a form (it works fine) but what I want to do is email the form
exactly as it is with the populated information. In otherwords, I want the
email sent to look just like the form that was filled out. I was able to get
it close but the problem I am having is that the form has a table in it and
the table uses a background JPG; but for some reason image is not being
included in the email and I'm stumped as to how to get it in there where it
belongs.

Here's the code I am using in the email function/sub.....

CODE:

Set msgMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
msgMail.From = Request("email")
msgMail.To = "(e-mail address removed)"
msgMail.Subject = "Response To Request"
msgMail.HTMLBody = " <html><head> " & _
"<style type=""text/css"">" & _
"<!--" & _
".TextBox {border: #000000 1px inset;border-color: #000000 #000000
#000000 #000000;font-family: Arial, sans-serif;font-size: 12px;color:
#000000;}" & _
"-->" & _
"</style></head><body>" & _

"***********************************************************************************<br>" & _
"<table

msgMail.Send
Set msgMail=nothing


ALSO TRIED:
"<table background=""table_background.jpg"" width=""703"" height=""490""
border=""0"" cellpadding=""0"" cellspacing=""0"">" & _


Is there something I am missing or Is there an easier way to do this?

Thanks Much In Advance,

Change the above to have the full URL to the table_background.jpg image to
load from your site, eg. http://www.yoursite.com/table_background.jpg.

If you want to actually embed the image then this might help:

http://classicasp.aspfaq.com/email/how-do-i-send-e-mail-in-html-format.html

Scroll down to the bit title "Embedding images in the e-mail". However this
will likely only work with Microsoft Outlook/Outlook Express. There are
likely ways to manage it to work with all HTML capable browsers, but I've
not used CDO myself. Personally I use Persits ASPEmail
(http://www.aspemail.com), it's fairly easy to create HTML with inline
images using this.
