Try reading the more up to date doco. It shows you how to set the urlBase attribute.
Other then that from what I have read I don't see any reason why your approach wont work. I think you just need to spend a bit more time researching how other people have done it.
Hi and thanks for answering.
Unfortunately for me that documentation didn't help either. I came across it before and while it's helpful enough to let me know that urlbase can be set to m:message, a beginner like me still have no idea what urlbase is etc.
Further, the external stylesheets is one thing but im missing even the css that's
built intothe various components?
I'm afraid i need some more specific pointers on how to make the emails look good but thanks anyways!
External css stylesheets are sensitive to the particular SMTP server rules in use;
they might work with some providers but not will all.
You can use inline or embedded styles with no major problems.
Even with Seam you can store the email content in a database table, and use it runtime.
