I need to know how I can get a PDF newsletter included in the body of my email so that it appears in addition to my message--NOT as an attachment that the recipients can click on???
I understand you'd like to put the PDF in the body of your email. Unfortunately Ellen was correct. The best way to achieve something like this would be to put the PDF into a JPG format and insert it into the body of your email. If it's multiple pages your email will get long fast. I hope this helps out!
Of course you'll also need to scale it as most files are created to print and not view at the size of an email.
In my humble opinion you're using a format (PDF) that isn't intended to be squished into a 600 wide format.
I would suggest you use the PDF as the basis for your email design but not consider pasting it as a graphic, unless after the scaling its readable across most platforms.

Great question! You can't copy the content of a PDF directly but there are a couple options. First, you can recreate the PDF file in a Constant Contact template as an email or you can insert the PDF file as a link into any email.
Hope this helps,
Good afternoon - Hopefully someone can help me -- how do i add an attachment to the email campaign? I dont want to make the attachment an image and i dont want to have a hyperlink within the email campaign. Is there a way to just send a pdf attachment along with the campaign?
At this time we do not have a way to attach a file like you would in an email client. The best way would be to create an image of your PDF or include it as a link within your campaign using the document link function.
If you're not getting the best quality out of your conversion try converting to a PNG file, it may increase the file size but it's a higher quality image. Another workaround you could try would be taking a screen shot of your PDF. I have found that this method usually keeps the quality intact as well.
