Open Facebook share links to iOS app from email?

Work has had me start building responsive html emails to send to our member list with Facebook share links inside. I know you can open links to iOS native apps from emails and websites within the iOS environment, but is it possible to have those "share to your wall" links work correctly? I've googled around a bit, but not having any luck finding a clear answer.

Is HTML-formatted e-mail still bad netiquette?

Are there still good reasons not to send HTML-formatted e-mail? I know that for years it was considered bad netiquette to send HTML-formatted e-mail (especially if you were sending e-mail to someone new and you weren't sure if his or her e-mail client supported HTML). I'm starting to wonder, though, whether those 90s-era precautions are still as applicable today. (This would be for regular day-to-day e-mail—not bulk e-mail or the like.) [more inside]

Got A Bad Case Of The Stationery Blues

What is the best resource, be it a site, book, whatever, to assist those unlucky enough to have to create stationery files for MS Outlook 2003? CSS supports seems inconsistent, and even table-based layouts don't behave as expected, or even as they do in IE.

Email Newsletter program?

Hi I would like to send email newsletters to my clients (about 100) and would like to do it all in-house. Are there good programs or tools to do this. If possible, I would like to know who reads it (I know ... privacy) by using images? / some sort of tracking if possible. Any ideas?

html email: css or not css?

I am working on an application that will send an html-newsletter. It looks great in thunderbird or Outlook, and like crap in Gmail or Hotmail, which a lot of the recipients use. The template uses css, which is included in the headers of the message (not linked). What is the common wisdom about html-email that looks good in Hotmail and Gmail? Is there any way to keep the CSS or do I have to start over from scratch? [more inside]

Making Multipart text/html email

I can't figure out how to do a multipart email message in Eudora 6 or Outlook 11 - basically an email that is HTML, (retaining an image map and attributes - don't ask), and those viewing from Unix get a text-only version of the message.

HTML-based email, with sound clip links; how do I make the clip launch a media player without launching a new browser window?

I need to construct an HTML-based email, with sound clip links, for our glorious marketing dept. But I am having problems with how the clips launch. When you select my link (you choose real or windows media format) the clip launches in the player, but a new browser window launches as well. So, how the hell do I get the !@#%$ player to launch without launching the &*#$% browser window?!? (Real Audio especially)
