Sending messages both in HTML and Text formats?

Postby perweb » 11:20pm, Wed 12 Sep, 2007

Hello,

I have two questions I will appreciate you to answer me.

1. Is possible to send HTML messages and if the Recipient has not his mailbox setup to HTML. Can he still receive the message in TXT format?

2. Is there a way to globally change at "Users Details" of a list "Send this user HTML emails" ftom "0" to "1"?

I mean to change these value to the whole list?

Thanks in advance

1. Yes you can send out a multi-part (text/html) message format by selecting "text/html" on the format tab of the 'send a message' page of the admin module.

2. On the 'reconcile users' page you should find an option to mark all users to receive HTML.

Unfortunately with version 2.10.5 there is NO possibility to choose multi-part (text/html) any more, only text and HTML. It was available under 2.10.4.

Still sending text?

I have all my users configured for HTML only, but each week I have about 270+ text messages go out. Can anyone tell me why this is and how to stop it? I don't have a text version of the newsletter, so these users are getting HTML code. Not Good!

I wonder whether this could be a bug related to multi-language support/internationalization.

Could you check whether the multi-part (text/html) option is available if you set the admin language to English, using the dropdown list of the admin module's main page?

No, you can NOT choose multi-part (text/html) when you set the admin language to English.

So, this looks like a bug!

Is there a solution in sight?

No bug at all, look at the changelog:

Code: Select all
2007-07-24 17:08  basovink

   * 0009687: Confusing use of the word "Both", indicating one email
     with both text and html and not two emails

     Changed (hopefully) all displaying of 'text and HTML' to 'HTML'
     Removed 'text and HTML'  option from interface Database untouched
     Statistics will only show 'HTML' but will add the existing 'text
     and HTML' count to it HTML will always include a  text MIME
     multipart Removed or commented out the string  'text and HTML'
     from all translation and help files.

Hi,

Personally I think it's more confusing this way...

So how do I specify what the text is for the text version of the email please?


Many thanks.
