Hi Everyone,
  I am trying to send an HTML email using a custom mail agent written in PB. Here I am using OLE automation with Outlook to send the HTML email. The problem I am having is that when I open the HTML email in YAHOO it renders as plain text with URL links to the images.

  I am aware that I need to somehow specify to Outlook the content-type of the mail. How can I do that? any suggestions are welcome.

Thank You

To create a message in html-format, you have to use the HTMLBody property instead of Body property. But note that this HTMLBody property is available staring from Outlook 98 only.
