HTML newsletters

This agent will allow you to create an email with HTML formatting as an attachment to your email message.

Put this code inside of an agent, and have a directory on a server where a temporary file can be created and written to.


Dim object As notesembeddedobject
Dim htmlmsg As String
Dim tempDir As String
Dim fileNum As Integer

'create html attachment
	htmlmsg = ""
	fileNum% = Freefile()
	tempDir$ = Environ("Temp")
	'Messagebox tempDir$
	Open tempDir$ &"newsletter.htm" For Output As fileNum%
	'Create standard HTML header and titles
	htmlmsg = htmlmsg & |<html>|
	htmlmsg = htmlmsg & |<head>|
	htmlmsg = htmlmsg & |<Title>BlueCuda Newsletter</title>|
	htmlmsg = htmlmsg & |</head>|
	htmlmsg = htmlmsg & |<body>|
	Print #fileNum%, htmlmsg
