This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Which version of Office do you use? The best solution is to use the built in Save As target of a webpage. This is available on versions of Publisher since Office 2003.

You might have to tweak which works best in your setup. Single file web pages might not work for all mail clients. Web Page should work, but you'll have to ensure you attach all the relevant images and flatten the directory structure (hand edit the HTML file) too.

Choose save as, then single file webpage

Unless Publisher is designed to output HTML email, it will be hard to get it there. HTML for email requires a very particular way of coding. Even if you find a way to get it to HTML, it will still require a lot of rework to get it ready for emailing without any problems across multiple email clients.

If you want it to match your Publisher design (depending on how complex it is), you'll have to hire a designer who specializes in email. Otherwise you can try and fit it into a Campaign Monitor or MailChimp template yourself.
