Email formats

HTML/plain text emails – what’s the difference?

HTML emails let you view images, graphics and links within the email.
Plain text emails contain only words, with no images, graphics or links.

Choose HTML if you:

  • Read your email while you are permanently connected to the Internet
  • Have a Web based email service such as Hotmail, Yahoo Mail or Google Mail
  • Are not sure, but want to give it a try.

Choose plain text if you:

  • Read your email while not connected to the Internet
  • Have an email client that does not support HTML mail (such as AOL 5).

If you have any further questions please email onlinemembersupport@soe.org.uk or telephone 020 7630 6666.
