Import Email From Outlook to Access in RTF

Posted on 2011-03-09

When importing an email from outlook into an access table the formatting on the email is lost.

I have the memo filed in the table set to RTF however the outlook object "Mailobject.Body" only seems to pull in the clear text format.

Any suggestions?
Set OlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set Inbox = OlApp.GetNamespace("Mapi").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
     
    Set rstAddEmail = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblInvestigationEmails")
    Set rstAddAttachment = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("tblInvestigationAttachments")

        Set Mailobject = OlApp.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)

        With rstAddEmail
            On Error Resume Next
            .AddNew
            !DateAdded = Now
            !EmailNumber = strEmailNumber
            !Subject = Mailobject.Subject
            !From = Mailobject.SenderName
            !To = Mailobject.To
            !Body = Mailobject.Body
            !DateSent = Mailobject.SentOn
            .Update
            'Mailobject.Read = True
        End With
