• HTML Mail

    By Vladimir Tankhimovich 9 years ago

    Hi,

    Could you please add HTML conversion for mails sent to Internet addresses? Rich text looks great in Notes, but external recipients get plain text.

    • HTML Conversion

      By Vladimir Tankhimovich 9 years ago

      Please disregard my HTML conversion request - it's done by changing server's outbound MIME conversion settings.

        Aha, well done. Yes, while not a Domino expert, I was going to suggest this was likely a Client, Database or Server configuration.

         

        The Mail Merge agents just automate standard Notes functions. Mail will be created and sent in whatever form the template mail document was originally composed in.

         

        Thanks for the interest in this project and I hope everything else works well for you.

    • MIME support added in v1.4

      By David Turner 7 years ago
          <p dir="ltr">
              MailMerge v1.4 now supports RichText to HTML/MIME format email conversion.</p>
          <p dir="ltr">
              As this function is only required for certain Domino installations, this function is activated by Installer/Administrator (see the updated 1.4 installation guide) and only works for Notes 8.5.1+ users.</p>
          <p dir="ltr">
              &nbsp;</p>
          <p dir="ltr">
              When the ALLOW_CONVERT_TO_MIME constant is activated, and you&#39;re using Notes 8.5.1 or greater, the script will now automatically toggle into MIME (HTML) mode if it detects you&#39;re sending email to external recipients; that is, if the TO, CC or BCC fields contain an (@) character.</p>
          <p dir="ltr">
              There is likely to be some impact to layout and formatting due to the MIME conversion. E.g. tables will have borders, fonts, paragraphs and styling may be slightly adjusted. Also, some code has been added to change the way dynamic Attachments are added when in MIME mode. However, the email will look a lot better than Plain Text for those using Outlook.</p>
          <p dir="ltr">
              &nbsp;</p>
          <p dir="ltr">
              This uses the Notes 8.5.1 ConvertToMime function as the generated drafts are saved.</p>
