Hi all

I'm sending an email with HTML body. When i receive the email the message source shows content_type : "Text/Plain" and then again "Text/html". All the fonts and style sheets don't have any effect. How can i get rid of this problem.

Dim myMail
Set myMail = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")

HTML = "<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC ""-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN"">" & vbCrLf
            HTML = HTML & "<html>"
            HTML = HTML & "<head>"
            HTML = HTML & "<meta http-equiv=""Content-Type"""
            HTML = HTML & "content=""text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"">"
            HTML = HTML & "<title>Sample NewMail</title>"
            HTML = HTML & "</head>"
            HTML = HTML & "<body class='12normal' >"
            HTML = HTML & "This is an HTML test e-mail. <BR></body>"
            HTML = HTML & "</html>"

myMail.From = "Example@microsoft.com"
myMail.To = "Someone@microsoft.com"
myMail.Subject = "Sample Message"
myMail.BodyFormat = 0
myMail.MailFormat = 0
myMail.Body = HTML
myMail.Send
Set myMail = Nothing

This is how my email body looks like. When i send the email the content-type is "text/plain" and all the formatting is lost.
The message source shows something like this:

Content-Type: text/plain;
      charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

This is a sample message being sent using HTML.

Content-Type: text/html;
      charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN">
<html><head><meta http-equiv=3D"Content-Type"content=3D"text/html; =
charset=3Diso-8859-1"><title>Sample NewMail</title></head><body>This is =
a sample message being sent using HTML. <BR></body></html>

How can i get rid of this content type plain text?? Is it a problem with CDONTS setting ?

To be honest, I'm not so sure Style Sheets work in Outlook when viewing email.

Have you tried manually formatting the text to see if that works?

To send an email with HTML, set the BodyFormat to 1, and the Body of the email as HTML.


myMail.BodyFormat = 1
