Sending Emails In HTML

Post by Protocol »

Can I send emails from PP in HTML?
When I have sent them, they are received in plain text.

Is there a setting to change for this?

Have you upgraded to POP Peeper Pro?

Here is a link in POP Peeper FAQ discussing HTML viewing: Upgrading to Pro: How can I display messages in full HTML?.

As referenced in the link above, there are options regarding HTML viewing on the "Tools" > "Options" > "View Messages" page.

Here is post by Jeff in a topic discussing "yellow bar behavior": http://www.esumsoft.com/Forums/viewtopi ... tml#p33604 that may be helpful.

Thanks lakrsrool for your reply.
I have not upgraded to POP Peeper Pro yet, and i can view receiving messages in HTML.
My question, and this topic's subject, is about to send messages in HTML that is not available yet (currently we can send messages only in plain text).

So,
1. Is it planning - when it is expected to - include in POP Peeper the feature to send messages in HTML?
2. Is there a page that one can see the upcoming features for the future versions?

Thanks

I would say that there's a good chance that sending in html will be included in v5.0; at least basic formatting like bold, italics, color, fonts and I would like to include inline images. Does that cover what you would expect to see as far as html formatting?

There is not currently a "what's coming" page like there was on the poppeeper.com website, although I may add it back again later. A couple of major features (read: time consuming if not all that exciting) that had been planned for v5.0 will instead be released in v4.4. One of the features (memory management) has become an issue that required immediate attention, and the other (simplified account creation) is just something that was needed. Read more about those two features here.

If there is anything else that you would like to see in v5.0, let us know!

"Tables" support would also be very useful.

In v5.0 i would also like to see "Virtual folders" placed on top or bellow the Accounts list:
One can create a Virtual folder named [Bank] and move there all received or send bank-related email messages from all active PP email accounts,
and a Virtual folder named [March Meeting Subjects] for emails related to this working project, etc...

Thanks Jeff

Part of me thinks that using "real" folders would be better, but there are instances where that may not be practical or even possible (e.g. POP3).

That being said, it could be a UI nightmare. For example, I have plans to re-design how "real" folders currently work by providing the option to access folders without having to create a separate account for each (that option would likely still be available, because it provides certain advantages). The UI-related issue with this is that you can't use a tree-view (ie. think of how a traditional email client shows folders, and can expand/collapse the folders) while showing columns. That's why TB will simply show a number in parentheses which indicates the number of unreads in that folder. The method that Sent Mail Viewer (screenshot) does this, by showing a list of folders in a separate window below the list of accounts was kind of a prototype for PP. But even with that, there are some potential issues that need to be considered.

So by including "virtual" folders, there would have to be even more careful consideration involved so as to not make the UI a mess. Three separate lists (accounts, folders, virtual folders)? Or something else?

Any suggestions?

yes, sending html messages would be great !

or at the least - when you "reply" to someone if the original email is parsed in html and then our response would be plain text -- thought programmatically, that's probably harder, since yould have mixed content

As a *user* of POP Peeper, I would prefer the opposite -- the capability to compose with HTML but have the quote in plain text (because I like to quote just one or two lines for context, and it's hard to do that when the quote is in HTML).

As the *developer* of POP Peeper, I'm more concerned about how POP Peeper may render the quoted material if it contains HTML that POP Peeper didn't support (e.g. tables).

Hi Jeff.
I know this thread is a bit old, but it's exactly what I am trying to do.

As of this time, sending messages using HTML composition is not yet available.

Other members of the Esumsoft Team will probably have more to say about this as well.

Thanks for your reply, mjs.

It saves me looking further in the settings for something that's not there.
