Compose and send HTML emails with Google Gmail?

by Robert Grezan   Last Updated October 09, 2019 05:03 AM - source

Is it possible to compose and sent HTML email with Google Gmail? Is there a maybe Chrome Extension which enables that? Or is there web client which can do that?

UPDATE: Yes, Gmail does support sending emails in HTML format, but I would like to edit a little more (in similar as http://www.tumblr.com/ has a way to edit your blog post)

I don't know of any extensions that would do that for you however if you really need to send an HTML email, design your email in any HTML editor (eg. NetBeans, dreamweaver...), "run" your page in a web browser, copy and paste the content of the webpage to gmail and send it.

From a client, it's no problem...from the Gmail website, I only know of people having luck with copy/paste of HTML and typically having to embed it inside a signature.

There is a little doubt that editing HTML should be possible. Some people used to do some hacking in the old days that Gmail didn't support HTML at all. http://www.dslreports.com/faq/12016

This works great. Someone wrote a script in a Google Doc which can send an email in HTML. Just copy/paste the HTML in the script's dialog box and set the to, cc, and bcc and it'll send it using your google account with which you are currently logged in.

I've made a chrome extension to help do exactly this. It overlays an HTML code editor on top of Gmail and injects your HTML email directly into the gmail compose window. You can even save your snippets and reuse them as you'd like!

There are many plugins/extensions that allow you to compose and send HTML emails directly from Gmail. BeeFree's Gmail add-on is one such tool.

However, since you require more flexibility I would suggest you to design your email using BeeFree.io's online editor and then send the email using Google AppScripts.

Even though the whole process looks more complicated, it's fairly simple. I suggest you check out my article on sending HTML emails with AppScripts here.
