Sending RTF-formatted emails with SMTP/MAPI

P: n/a
Hi all...

Is it possible to send RTF-formatted emails using the .NET SmtpMail

I can only find provision in the BodyFormat property of the message to
send plain text or HTML emails.

I also have a similar problem in sending HTML/RTF emails via MAPI and
would appreciate any help anyone could give me in these areas.

I'm fairly new to sending anything more complicated than a simple
plain text message programatically, so any advice would be helpful

Hi Ian,

At the top of my head I would say no, since html is essential just plain text too, and rtf isn't. You probably need to convert rtf to html before you send it. (Personally I prefer e-mail as text only, no html, since you have usually no control of wether or not the receiver uses a html enabled e-mail reader.)

Happy coding!
