Hi, guys. I need to send e-mail to one/several recipients. I need my application to retreive data from DataBase and insert it into SUBJECT, BODY fields. I succede in doing this,
(here is a part of my .jsp page):


Upon clicking this reference in browser MS Outlook is being opened with populated data in appropriate fields - exactly what I need.
The problem is in the following: I need the data, inserted into Outlook's fields(Subject, Body etc.) formatted (bold, italic, etc). It must be done programatically, it's customer's demand. When I try something like:

<b_old - because this tag won't be displayed HERE otherwise

html tags are being displayed in Outlook's window. I also tried to type &LessThen; (<) / &GreaterTthen; (>). Result is exactly the same. Is there any overcome??? Thanks in advance for any ideas shared..>

Check your outlook options. Outlook has an option somewhere to send email in plain text or in HTML. I think this can also be assigned in a domain-by-domain fashion. Check to make sure Outlook is configured to send HTML email.
