How to HTML Email using Simple MAPI Interface

I have C++ Simple MAPI routines for sending emails.  This works well for straight text emails.  I have prepared a HMTL body for emailing but do not know how to flag the fact that the body is HTML to the client when using Simple MAPI.

Can this be done with Simple MAPI ?

If it can't be done using Simple MAPI how is it done using an alternative.
Let's start with Extended MAPI before moving on to something super sophisticated.
Try to keep it simple.  I'm only looking at sending a single email body with simple HTML.

Thanks.

That's right.

>Do you have any references for Extended MAPI as requested in the question
You have to read MAPI (not Simple MAPI) documentation in MSDN:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/exchanchor/htms/msexchsvr_mapi.asp
Also read this page with lots of source code:
http://www.wischik.com/lu/programmer/mapi_utils.html

Notice "extended MAPI" is not the official name, just MAPI.

As far as I know, it is not possible with Simple MAPI. You can use Extended MAPI with Outlook.

Thanks guys but I'm still looking for a solution.
Jaime suggests its a problem with Simple MAPI but gives not alternative.
Jkr suggests its possible but I see no example at the referenced site.

This is an alternative, but you can't ask for an impossible.

Your question is:
"Can this be done with Simple MAPI ?"

The correct answer is:
No, you can't.

Jaime,  I'm not looking for the impossible.  If it can't be done with Simple MAPI that's fine.  Do you have any references for Extended MAPI as requested in the question.  Also I assume that if I use Extended MAPI I can't use Outlook Express.  This could be an issue.  Any other suggestions.  Peter

Good luck,
