Sending HTML Mail with ASP.NET 1.1

Hi all

I'm sending email via ASP.NET in HTML mode. Each email has exactly one
attachment and I do have full access to the SMTP server. However, if I
send the email in HTML format, the framework reports the following
exception:
"System.Web.Htt pException: Could not access 'CDO.Message' object. --->
System.Reflecti on.TargetInvoca tionException: Exception has been thrown
by the target of an invocation. --->

However, sending in plain text works perfectly.
Any ideas?

I'm not sure what you are doing wrong since you haven't shown us your source
code, but try following this tutorial in sending HTML emails with
attachements:

I've seen that but none of the ideas work. ;)

Thanks though.

Hi Andrei

Here is the method:

public static void SendEmail(MailM essage Message, string SMTPServer) {
if (SMTPServer != "")
SmtpMail.SmtpSe rver = SMTPServer;
SmtpMail.Send(M essage);
}

Which is called by an overloaded method:

public static void SendEmail(strin g From, string To, string Bcc, string
Cc, string Subject, string Body, string[] Attachments,
System.Web.Mail .MailFormat Format, string SMTPServer)
{
MailMessage _mm = new MailMessage();
_mm.From = From;
_mm.To = To;
_mm.Subject = Subject;
_mm.Body = Body;
_mm.BodyFormat = Format;
_mm.Cc = Cc;
_mm.Bcc = Bcc;

foreach (string s in Attachments)
_mm.Attachments .Add(new System.Web.Mail .MailAttachment (s));
SendEmail(_mm, SMTPServer);
}

Nope, but I think I've got the issue, but not the solution. IIS is
running on my laptop for my dev environment. I was working from home
this weekend with the SMTP virtual server set to forward to the server
at the office. It seems the SMTP server doesn't like relaying over the
VPN for some reason as today it is working perfectly.

Hello I tried to send mail from PHP in html format. But an ! mark appears in mail body in Inbox. I tried to print body text on page before sending mail and it does not show ! mark. I replaced ! mark from mail body before passing it to mail() function but then also it adds ! mark in mail body. Can you please tell me why this is happening? Thanks
