if you add the url string &message=xxxxxxxx you can make what ever you want in there. The big BUT is that it needs to be URL encoded.So, you might say message=Thank you for coming.you would have to code it like this message=Thank%20you%20for%20coming.If you want HTML in there, the you will need to escape all the < and > symbols - theoritically, it should work.But its much easier to use a server side scripting language to send HTML enhanced messages - especially since they can be multi-part.

Yes it's possible, this will insert a link into the body of an email created with an anchor
