I am writing a small app to send scheduled emails to customers. I am using vb6 utilizing mapi. Apparently mapi sends rtf native, the emails are stored as html. I need to keep the formating of the html or send the email stored in the drafts folder. If another solution besides mapi would do a better job I am open to suggestions. Any Ideas? Thank you in advance for your time.

What I did is create the HTML as a file called email.htm and then attach it and have no body to the email. It then makes the HTML attachment the body in HTML format. At least it does for me. ;)

Good luck.

Possible good solution.. but what happens when you need to also attach files?

I thought of that after I posted. I haven't tried that. If I can get some time, I will give it a shot and let you know.
