Hi,

I have setup a form to send emails via Outlook and the emails are sent containing just text.

However, I want to send these emails containing HTML. Can anyone show me how I can set the below code to send the emails in HTML form?

Thanks,
Paul
Public Class Form1
 
    Dim OutApp As Object
    Dim OutMail As Object
    Dim strbody As String
 
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        OutApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        OutApp.Session.Logon()
        OutMail = OutApp.CreateItem(0)
 
        strbody = "<html><body><font color='red'>TEXT</font></b></body></html>" & _
                  "Dear all," & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & _
                  "This is a test email." & vbNewLine & _
                  "" & vbNewLine & _
                  "" & vbNewLine & _
                  "Thanks and regards," & _
                  "" & vbNewLine & _
                  "Paul"
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub SendClose_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SendClose.Click
        Dim DestinationEmail As String
        Dim RequestNumber As String
 
        RequestNumber = RequestNo.Text
        DestinationEmail = SendTo.Text
 
        With OutMail
            .To = DestinationEmail
            .CC = ""
            .BCC = ""
            .Subject = "DWP Service Desk - 4 DAY CLOSE - <" & RequestNumber & "> - chkd"
            .Body = strbody
            .send()
 
            MessageBox.Show("Email Sent!")
 
            'Clear Text Boxes
            SendTo.Text = ""
            RequestNo.Text = ""
            LocationCode.Text = ""
            Subject.Text = ""
        End With
 
 
    End Sub
End Class
