Hi folks:

 So I'm making my own contact form. Users fill out fields, and hit a submit button. THe system then sends an email.

 I'm using this:

                    DotNetNuke.Services.Mail.Mail.SendMail(FromAddress,SenderAddress,ToAddress,Subject,Body,string.Empty,"HTML",string.Empty,string.Empty,string.Empty,string.Empty);

THe thing is, when messages come in to my Outlook Inbox, the message header says it's not Content-type:text/html and the display of the content is pretty ugly.

 

So i'm wondering what I"m doing wrong here. The content I have is really nothing more than a couple styled divs. If I view the message via HOTMAIL, it looks great. But embedded in outlook it's just all wrong.

 

I don't know for sure, but I think it's because the message isn't being send with the correct content type.

 Would someone be willing to offer some insights? In my code (above), I think I'm setting the "HTML" the way it should. But when I look at message source of a delivered email, it's content-type:multipart/alternative.

I could be wrong, but methinks this is an outlook rendering issue.

 

I'm not sure 100%. but just did a little reading about the nightmare of formatting html embedded for viewing in Outlook.

I am having no issues with HTML notifications from the forums on this website.
Which DNN Version are you running on your site?

Hi friend:

 It's not an issue with HTML notifications. It's an issue with the way DotNetNuke.Mail.Mail.SendMail was being used on my part. THe issue was specifically with the way outlook was rendering the embedded HTML, which I've since researched and learned is an OUTLOOK issue, not a DNN issue.

I've modified my embedded HTML that was being sent to be old school HTML for safer rendering in Outlook.

ah, thanks for the additional feedback. Most mail clients have limited capabilities on CSS/HTML for security reasons.
