Forwarded HTML Email doesn't display properly

Hi,

I have a VB.Net application that creates and sends HTML emails to a recipient list. When the original recipients receive the email, it looks properly formatted but when someone forwards the email to someone else, Groupwise (6.5.7) treats the HTML as plain-text. Any idea what I can do to have the forwarded emails display correctly?

Thanks,
Bruce Holmes

Re: Forwarded HTML Email doesn't display properly

In the GWClient, the HTML message body is a special attachment.
It has a hard-coded name "text.htm". It also has a MIME context-
type of "TEXT/HTML".
It 8.0.0, the Attachment object has the ability to set the
content-type. You also have to set the attachment name to "text.htm".

The GWClient can also have embedded graphics in the HTML message
body. The embedded graphics are separate attachments. The embedded
graphic attachments are included after the text.htm attachment.
Each of the embedded graphics has a MIME content-id. The list of
attachments will continue until there are no more attachments or
there is an attachment without a content-id. In 8.0.0, you can
set the content-id of an attachment. You can dump the HTML message
attachment(s) of a GWClient message to see the format.

Let me know if you still have questions or I didn't answer you
question sufficiently.

Re: Forwarded HTML Email doesn't display properly

Hi Preston,

Thanks for responding. I tried attaching a file named "text.htm" with my message in it instead of filing the "BodyText" property with my html string and got the same results, i.e., the original recipients would get a correctly formatted email and forwarded recipients would get plain text (showing all the html tags). Is there anything else I can do using GW6.5.7? Upgrading to 8.0.0 is not an option at this time.

Thanks,
Bruce

Re: Forwarded HTML Email doesn't display properly

There is nothing that you can do in 6.5.x or
7.0.x.
