Hi,
I am using the CDONTS.NewMail object to send mail with html format.
My HTMl include the following tag:
<META content="text/html; charset=windows-1255" http-equiv=Content-Type>
The purpose tag is to set the correct encoding in outlook.
When i open the mail in outlook it's contain the html  but the numbers appears opposite instead of 1234 i am getting 4321.
when i view the source of the mail the <META> tag is disapper. The HTML mail is in hebrew language so the content of the mail is written from right to left.
Thanks.

Hi gali,

How do you build the html string?

something like

HTML = "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC ""-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN"">" & vbCrLf
HTML = HTML & "<html>"
HTML = HTML & "<head>"
HTML = HTML & "<meta http-equiv=""Content-Type"" content=""text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"">"
HTML = HTML & "<title>Sample NewMail</title>"
HTML = HTML & "</head>"
HTML = HTML & "<body>"

etc..............?

so before you send the mail could you first print the html to see if the tag is in?

sorry for the confusion i didn't mean print

i meant something like debug.print HTML to the debug window so you can check if the complete string is in there
