Hi All,

I am using the Quartz SendMailJob to send a report by email. My requirement is to send the Report in HTML format. However, MS Outlook is not recognizing the format and displaying HTML text as is.

My method is as below:

      private void sendEmail(JobExecutionContext arg0, String jobMessage) {
            if(arg0.getMergedJobDataMap().containsKey("recipient")){
                  //send an e-mail to the recipient
                  try {
                        arg0.getMergedJobDataMap().put("message", jobMessage);
                        arg0.getMergedJobDataMap().put("contentType", "text/html");
                        
                        SendMailJob mailJob = new SendMailJob();
                        mailJob.execute(arg0);
                        logger.info(jobMessage);
                  } catch (Exception e) {
                        e.printStackTrace();
                        StringBuilder message = new StringBuilder();
                        message.append("Could not send email to ");
                        message.append(arg0.getMergedJobDataMap().getString("recipient"));
                        logger.info(message);
                  }
            }
      }

Here it is:

      StringBuilder html = new StringBuilder();
            html.append("<html>");
            html.append("<head><h1>Test Report</h1></head>");
            html.append("<body>");
            html.append("<table cellpadding='10'>");
            html.append("<th align='left'>Reference ID</th><th align='left'>Origination Date</th><th align='left'>Previous Status</th>");
            html.append("<tr>");
            html.append("This is the Report Body");
            html.append("</tr>");
            html.append("</table>");
            html.append("</body>");
            html.append("</html>");

That's certainly ok if the headers have been set correctly. I'm not convinced they have but unfortunately the api docs that i'm able to see are decidedly thin when it comes to comment/explanations:
http://quartz-scheduler.org/api/2.0.0/org/quartz/jobs/ee/mail/SendMailJob.html
If you know of any better ones, let me know.
Perhaps you ought to be using http://quartz-scheduler.org/api/2.0.0/org/quartz/jobs/ee/mail/SendMailJob.html#PROP_CONTENT_TYPE but i'm not sure. If you can find a link to the source, post that too please.

Otherwise, someone who's actually used this api might come along...

You're not appending the html as a mime attachment.  That will almost certainly fix the problem.

mrcoffee365,

Would you give an example as the current documentation does not show one. It will be really helpful!

The current document has 2 calls relating to the mime message attachment.  This person shows an example (with Velocity and Spring, but you can ignore those parts):
http://shahmukesh.wordpress.com/2010/12/02/spring-integration-with-quartz-for-sending-bulk-e-mails/

He doesn't mention it, but you should try setting the content-type for your email to "text/html" to see if that helps with your current implementation.

To see the api, here:
http://quartz-scheduler.org/api/2.0.0/org/quartz/jobs/ee/mail/SendMailJob.html

We don't use Quartz to send email, but apparently it's a fairly simple-minded interface.  They expect you to write your own implementation of it if you have additional needs.  See this discussion here:

I am posting my implementation for reference. Thank you mrcoffeee365 and CEHJ!

Extend the SendMailJob and implement the following:

protected void setMimeMessageContent(MimeMessage mimeMessage, MailInfo mailInfo) throws MessagingException {
            final MimeBodyPart textPart = new MimeBodyPart();
              textPart.setText("This is the text");

            // HTML version
             final MimeBodyPart htmlPart = new MimeBodyPart();
            htmlPart.setContent("<html><body>...</body></html>", "text/html");
            htmlPart.setFileName("test.html");

            // Create the Multipart.  Add BodyParts to it.
            final Multipart mp = new MimeMultipart();
            mp.addBodyPart(textPart);
            mp.addBodyPart(htmlPart);

            // Set Multipart as the message's content
            mimeMessage.setContent(mp);
}
