I have sent some HTML files to a few people. When they open them they are opening them in their email page. How can I make this stop happening?

Instead of attaching the HTML-files, attach the ZIP-file that SpreadsheetConverter generates. This will solve your problem and make the email much smaller. Then you have to tell the user to open the zip file, extract the files and click on the HTM-file.

How do I apply for the advance service?

Request a receiver code and check the advanced service. The receiver code for the free service and the advanced service is the same.

There are two solutions:
