# How to use LaTeX within the subject or body of an e-mail?

Does anyone have an LaTeX email template they like to use?

Is there any good way to add a LaTeX document into the subject/body of an email?

• What do you want to achieve? You can add a letter as attachment or you can add LaTeX code as message body, but you won't be able to include the DVI/PDF in a mail without using a PDF object in HTML (which at least my mail client would block immediately). So what are you aiming at? Jun 20 '18 at 9:18
• Use LaTeX to write the email (so that I can include math equations), and then send the email. Jun 20 '18 at 9:19
• Then you should definitely not use LaTeX to write your mail. If it's math-heavy consider using an attachment. Otherwise you could include MathJax in a HTML mail I guess (but this would be off-topic here). Jun 20 '18 at 9:19
• Ok understood. I wasn't sure if there was a way to include LaTeX in an email file. Thanks Jun 20 '18 at 9:20
• I use a Thunderbird extension called LaTeX It! that renders maths within $...$ as pictures (using your local TeX installation) and embeds them in the HTML mail. It works OK for people who accept HTML mails and short maths, but if it is anything heavier I would probably just attach a PDF. Jun 20 '18 at 9:49
