They're Baaaaack

No, silly, not the poltergeists....

The horrible emails from Yum! Brands and Pizza Hut.


When, oh when, will they learn how to send a properly formatted HTML email? Or even a plain text one....

If they keep this up, I'm going to have to add a tag just for them....

JUST as I was reading your post, an email hit my inbox. From Pizza Hut. Normally, I would just delete it, but I decided to open it. And when I saw a picture instead of what you see, it hit me: Pizza Hut is formatting their emails for AOL users! (Yes, am ashamed to confess, am one. Too lazy to change email addresses when I've had it for almost 13 years.)

Shouldn't they just send that to, you know, @aol.com addresses?

ok, the one I got on gmail is formatter right. they are missing whatever header is takes to make Outlook know it's HTML.

Which is an EASY thing to fix and I stand by Yum! being dumb, b/c if the viagara spammers can figure out how to get a properly formatted email on gmail, aol, AND outlook, Yum! should be able to do it.
