I want to send a formatted email (say HTML or PDF) to a large group of people (all parents in a school - no, I do not mean to spam, just send them a monthly newsletter about school-related activities).

Google Groups help says that I can open a group large enough.

However, this FAQ says I cannot send HTML email from Google Groups. As I do not want to send HTML or PDF as attachments but rather as the message itself, do you know of a way to do this in Google Groups, or a competing site?

There is absolutely no way you can do that in Google Groups.

It is not possible even in Yahoo! Groups.

HTML and pdf files have to be sent as attachment even in GMail and all the e-mail services.

At the best, what you can do is upload the pdf or html file to Google Docs/Google Drive or some similar service and share a link to it in the message.
