If you would like to customize the email body with html using SPD, I would suggest selecting Advanced Properties on the email action and add your HTML template into the body section.

Select the email action and click Advanced Properties under the modify section

Add your html template into the body section


Putting the html directly into your email like this WON'T WORK:

Instead, you need to create a string variable to hold your html, including any fields you want to include (with no spaces anywhere in the html) and use that variable in the email:
