HTML Email

Emails sent from Open Dental can have HTML coding to include images, fonts, and colors.

In the Email Message Edit window, click Edit HTML.

Additionally, click Edit HTML in Email Templates window to create HTML formatted templates.

The following options are available when editing HTML emails.


Other valid HTML tags will work with the exception of the break <br> tag. Do not use head or body tags in the email, they are already present in the default template.

Use Raw Html (don't use master template): This option is for advanced users with expertise in crafting custom HTML. Check box to edit the raw HTML that will be sent in the email. No error checking is provided to validate raw HTML.

Note: Different email clients will render HTML code differently. Make sure any raw HTML you intend to send has been well tested for errors and visual problems across various possible email programs (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird, Gmail, etc).

Click OK when done editing to insert the HTML into the email message.
