Hi I have a page which sends emails. I want to make psrt of the body bolf but if I use <strong></strong> it just prints <strong></strong> in the body. Hereis what I have:

messagebody = "The following ENR Classified ad was recieved from " & fromemail & " at " & whensent & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & "<strong>" & title_field & "</strong>" & vbcrlf & editor1

and I want the variable title_field to be in bold. How would I do this. My code is below.

Thanks

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<%
Dim senderemail, recipientemail, subject, messagebody, title_field, editor1, fromemail, whensent
fromemail = request.form("email_field")
fromemail = Replace(fromemail, "'", "''")


' EDIT THESE VALUES!!!!

' enter the email address that you want the ads sent to
recipientemail = "elliottbenzle@gmail.com"
'recipientemail = "Angela_Ambrosini@mcgraw-hill.com"

' enter the email address that you want to appear in the "from" line of your email
senderemail = "ENRads"

' you can change the text below for the subject line, "fromemail" is a variable not text
subject = "ENR Classified Ads - Online Submission from " & fromemail

' this gets the date and time that the email was sent from the server
whensent = now()

' get the title of the ad from the form page
title_field = request.form("title_field")
titlefield = Replace(titlefield, "'", "''")

' get the body of the ad from the form page
editor1 = request.form("editor1")
editor1 = Replace(editor1, "'", "''")
editor1 = Replace(editor1, "<p>", "")
editor1 = Replace(editor1, "</p>", "")
editor1 = Trim(editor1)

' set the content of the email body
messagebody = "The following ENR Classified ad was recieved from " & fromemail & " at " & whensent & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & "*" & title_field & "*" & vbcrlf & editor1

' these are used for testing purposes they can be deleted
response.write (senderemail) & "<br>"
response.write (recipientemail) & "<br>"
response.write (subject) & "<br>"
response.write (messagebody)

' send the first email to us
Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
myMail.Subject=subject
myMail.From=senderemail
myMail.To=recipientemail
myMail.TextBody=messagebody
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _

myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _

=25
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Update
myMail.Send
set myMail=nothing

' change the email body message with an added thank you message for the user
messagebody = "Thank you for your submission to ENR Classifieds. Below is the text from your ad. We will contact you if we need any other information." & vbcrlf & "Thank you." & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & messagebody

' sned a second copy of the email to the user
Set myMail2=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
myMail2.Subject= subject
myMail2.From=senderemail
myMail2.To=fromemail
myMail2.TextBody=messagebody
