The eGreetings Grinch

from the forget-the-ecards dept

Now, not only do you have to think about paying to send electronic greeting cards, you should also realize that many times they simply don’t work. Many network security and anti-virus products strip out the electronic greetings thinking they may be viruses. Plus, there are all sorts of issues with any “embedded” graphics. I, for one, have received a number of holiday greeting emails that are unreadable, because I don’t use an email client that reads HTML mail (yes, I’m a relic, leave me alone). While I, at least, understand what’s going on, others are confused by the weird mangled electronic greeting cards they’re receiving. My favorite story, though, is about the companies who completely forgot to attach their animated greeting to the emails they sent. Nice attention to detail.
