HTML emails synchronised as text-only

Post by robb » Mon Dec 15, 2008 7:24 pm

HTML emails in Thunderbird end up as text-only emails in Outlook Mobile whenever I synchronise.

If I go to Menu > Tools > Options > Outlook E-mail > Next > Next > Next > E-mail > Settings then it shows "Message Format" as "HTML" (although Email is unticked - otherwsie it attempts to synchronise with an Exchange server.)

However, the messages in my phone's Inbox are text only...

Hello robb,

Yes, by now HTML mails in Thundebird are converted to plain text mails in Pocket Outlook during the synchronization process. There is no workaround to this behavior. Sorry about it.
