Hi,
I have an automated email sending class that uses swing to do the sending.
What text do I send as a string to include links or images in it? Must I simply send an <HTML> page's text for the email to have links, images at the receiving end?
If I send HTML from a Yahoo email, the html text is what is received.
Thanks

Yes, the mime type must be set to text/html. This is normally a part of the JavaMail procedure

How is that done? What Object must I act on?

So, once I set it to HTML. My message can be drafted in HTML?
