where is this sMsgbody used? If you render it in a label, there is no way. If you render it in a HTML container, you can use <b>...</b> (but then you will have to replace your vbCRLF with <br />).

Also, if it is a label, you could create two separate labels, having the first part of your message go into the first label, and the "Laundry and Equipment" portion going into the second label, having the font of the second label as bold.

You need to set the MIME Content-Type to text/html NOT text/plain, then you can send the email normally and use <strong>Bold text goes here...</strong>
