I don't understand. HTML is just text. If your relative downloads it, they can open it in a browser. What error does he/she get?

Hi
Thanks a lot for your notifying that  any html file sent in an email that it should invariably be downloaded  first
and then only the same should be opened in a browswer.
This is obvious because the enclosed html file as shown in the attahement. is self explanatry since the html file is merely indicating the file name
without getting itself opened in a mailserver(supposed to act as browser)  unlike other png file.which opens
I failed to inform my relarive about owloding.
Though it is pretty small error that resulted somuch of correction.
Many thanka
