Email output is weird

When i use the mail tags to send mail on submission of a new record, it is sending the mail just fine, however, we are receiving it with all the < HTML > tags so that the email will look something like this:

A new record has been created by Yafreax with the following info:<p>

<p>

Name: Yafreax<p>

<p>

Address: whatever<p>

<p>

-----

and so on. The main problem with this is when i include links in the email. I use links with in the emails so that the person receiving the email can simply click the link to set a field to a certain criteria such as "closed." In the email, of course, i'm getting:

<a href="http://1.1.1.1/FMPro?-db=yada yada yad and so on> CLICK HERE TO CLOSE</a>

the link is still active but how can i get it so that it will either process as a regular email, or process as HTML mail. . . is this strictly a end user issue dependant on the mail program the receiver is using??

Any advice would be appreciated.

E-mail is plain text! It don't use no steekin' html codes!

I know what you want to do: send rich-text e-mail. In order to do this the header (or something) of the mail message has to be changed to indicate that the message is rich text. AFAIK there is no way to do this with Web Companion.

Somebody posted a message recently about a workaround they made to get Outylook to post formatted e-mail, but I think it involved VBA. Complicated. And it used Outlook.

Hi,

Don't know if this helps, but I've discovered that if you put the complete URL in the mail (as in <http://www.fmforums.com> along with the opening and closing "<" & ">") then Eudora treats it as a HTML link if your Eudora is set to send rich text mail by default.

It's come in very handy for me.
