When sending using the MAPI sending method there will not be an option for an HTML view. Instead, there will be an option to include an attachment. Any type of file can be attached.
Use the Browse... buttons next to each field to go find the desired file. Use the magnifying glass buttons () to open the file in it's associated application.
For now, you can just use the default sample messages that came with AutoMSW. If you use the buttons to view the messages you will notice they are utilizing the mail merge feature of Auto Mailer. For more on mail merge see the Using AutoMSW / Mail Merge section in the documentation.
Step 5: Start the job
When the mailing job is complete, you will be notified how many emails were sent, and how many failed. You can see the log file for the job under the View menu. When an AutoMSW job finishes it will create 3 new mailing lists for you. One will contain the list of successfully emailed recipients. The second will contain the list of failed recipients. These first 2 mailing lists will be formatted the same as your original mailing list. The third mailing list will contain all the failed recipients, along with a new field containing the reasons why the emails failed. This can be useful in helping clean up your mailing lists. To view these new mailing lists see the View menu from the main window.
