Outlook Redemption

Hi

I am using the latest redemption. I am using the below code in vb.net to
send mail in html format. The problem is that text does not get sent as html
and html tags appear as they are in the message like '<HTML>' etc. Any idea
what I am doing wrong?

Thanks

Regards


Yahya

Here is the definition (readonly) I can see in vs.net Object Browser of
htmlbody;

Public Overridable ReadOnly Property HTMLBody() As String
Member of: Redemption.SafeMailItem

and here is how body is defined;

Public Overridable Property Body() As String
Member of: Redemption.SafeMailItem

htmlbody.

C:\...\Form1.vb(116): Property 'HTMLBody' is 'ReadOnly'.

Hi

A little more info. It says v3.3.0.282 on the dll properties but when I add
it into vs under COM references, the interop file (Interop.Redemption.dll)
says v3.2.

Thanks

Regards

One approach would be to set the MailItem.HTMLBody and .Subject, then save the item and set your SafeMailItem. Then you can add the recipients.

Since only reading HTMLBody property is blocked by the security patch,
that's what Redemption implements. Setting the property does not cause the
security popup, so you can set it on the original OOM object assigned to the
Item property. Or define SafeMailItem as a generic Object to avoid the
compiler errors, at run-time Redenption will forward all calls to the
properties and methods that it does not implement to the object assigned to
the Item property.
