To design an HTML email, you would need PhotoShop. To code an HTML email, you would need to code HTML using table cells, like you would code back in 1998. No external stylesheet should be used, and all styles should be placed inline.

For example:

<td style="border:1px solid red"></td>

HTML emails can be frustrating at times because of cross device compatibility.

Litmus is a great tool for testing, but it isn't free.

Thanks guys. Appreciated! Going to go try out some html programming.
