  Yes! Many people are already doing this. Since the Mix-FX files are only a couple of KBs they can easily help you to spice up your email, just that little bit that you need to stand out. To do this you first need to create an HTML page. Type your text, add the Mix-FX files and upload this file to your webserver.

Will Mix-FX run if I don't have Flash installed?
  Yes! Mix-FX runs absolutely independently of Flash. All program options will work identically with or without Flash installed on your computer.
   
When I create and preview Mix-FX movies, the saved version is not the effect that I have selected.
 

Until you purchase a key, Mix-FX will always only save one predefined text and background effect so you can see its superior small file size..

   
I'm loading the SWF file that I've created in Mix-FX into Flash , but I do not see the generated effect.
 

Make sure that your text color is not the same as the background color of the movie you are importing it into. For instance, if both are white, then that's the reason you're not seeing anything.

   
If I buy Mix-FX now, will I miss out on future upgrades?
 

No, once you buy Mix-FX, you are guaranteed to get any future upgrades for FREE. So there is no reason to wait. Better yet, if you buy it now you only pay US$27 and will never have to pay for any upgrades, but you can be sure that this price will increase over time and when the features have expanded.

How to make a Mix-FX text effect stop from looping in Flash?
  After you have loaded the effect through the loadmovie command, you should add 59 frames and add an "unloadMovie" and "Stop" action in the 60th frame. Add an additional layer and create a textfield with the same font and text, and position this textfield exactly on top of the Mix-FX effect.

Alternatively, you can use a Mix-FX effect with the "standard" text effect settings.

In case the Mix-Effect effect fades out you must move the textfield a couple of frames to the left.

So what happens is that, after the Mix-FX effect has played once, it will be removed from the timeline and replaced by the textfield you just created.
   
How to create an effect with a different color than the provided colors?
  Beyond the 128 standard colors, you can use any color that you want by simply entering the desired HEX code in the HEX field of each color menu. when done you must press the enter key on your keyboard else the hex code will not be updated.
   
How to create an effect with dimensions larger than 600x300?
  You can create any dimensions that you would like by entering the desired dimensions in the Mix-FX, X and Y dimensions field, and then you should NOT press the update button, or you can set the width and height dimension directly in the HTML tag to a larger format or percentage. For example height="800"
   
How to make the SWF file transparent to add a background picture directly in HTML?
 

Yes, a background picture is possible. To do this, just add the following line of code to the object section of your HTML code:
<param name=wmode value=transparent>
in ther embed section of your HTML code you must add:
wmode="transparent"
