Not at present - give me an example of what you might want to use it for and we can have a chat about it

Have spoken to the requester, basically it was more to do with formatting. The current emails are all in plain text. They felt with the ability to use HTML they could produce more vibrant emails I suppose.

Please can you advise if the above is possible as i am being asked the following to be included in emails that get sent out to members:-

Wanted ability to do basics e.g. Bold, italic and underlined. Different fonts and sizes. Also embed images such a small photos or the like in the body of the message. Nothing tricky but thinking of sharing tournament results with photos of the event and also a weekly email with results and embedded images showing the relevant tables.

Thanks
Kishor

I think this is more and more expected these days. As Kishnor says - it doesn't need to be too elaborate.

We have a number of different posts on emails. We are going to review our email provider and how emails are formatted etc will be part of the whole review. Presently we provide a basic service and provide reports that allow clubs to export email addresses if they prefer to use a more flexible service.

Please note the email review will be something we will undertake later this ear, I cannot give specifics on dates but will post an update when available
