Can I make a newsletter that clients without HTML e-mail capabilities can see?

Hello, Andre. My department uses Lotus Notes, and we are trying to develop a newsletter that users can open from their e-mail directly, and view and read. The problem is, a small percentage of our audience uses mail clients that do not support HTML e-mail. What do you recommend?
I suggest calling your IBM sales representative to discuss moving those users into the 21st century.

If that's not an option, I can't think of a way to create a single e-mail that will have nice formatting for Notes and Outlook users, and still look good to users of antique e-mail clients. I think you'd need to keep track of which users can't use HTML -- keep a list somewhere -- and send them a different e-mail, perhaps containing a link to the newsletter stored on an internal mail server.

Possibly someone who knows more about Notes mail administration could tell you of a mail server setting to convert some of the HTML messages into plain text -- that's not really my area.
