I have a Formatted list complete for Rich text (Colored status fields). he list will very isn size from several rows to 25 rows. I want to send the list via email just as it looks in SharePoint.

Is it possible to do this?

If you're writing code:
Not as Rich text, but SPUtility.SendEmail sends the body as HTML

If you're creating a SharePoint Designer Workflow
Even though it doesn't tell it the Body of the Email users action allows full HTML like this: enter image description here

Thanks. I am not familiar with implementing this procedure and do not know how to invoke it. Can you point me to where i can learn how to implement within my Sharepoint workflow? – Jim Apr 11 '12 at 14:31
What kind of workflow? SharePoint Designer or Visual Studio? – Per Jakobsen Apr 11 '12 at 14:40
Sharepoint Designer. I am not really versed on Visual Basic programming nor do I know where or how to begin with this. – Jim Apr 11 '12 at 15:20
Thanks Per for your help. I see the Full HTML listing, but can i actually link the SharePoint List in the Body of this email? I want the email body to look like the list displays when I veiwing in Sharepoint? – Jim Apr 11 '12 at 20:57
No I'm sorry but not without having someone build a custom action. You can insert any text you can get hold of into the body, but I can't see how you should be able to get the view without custom code. – Per Jakobsen Apr 12 '12 at 18:25
