Hi - I'm trialing out the .Net objects with a view to purchasing soon, but it
all hinges on one thing - the ability to easily create MSG files to be opening
in outlook 2007 (in draft mode).

I have been able to do this in principle... but I cannot get the formatting to
work properly, and having spent several hours on it, I'm starting to wonder if
it's supported at all.

For example:

MailBee.OutlookMsg.MsgConvert.MailMessageToMsg(new MailMessage { BodyHtmlText =
"Dear XXX<br>Thank you...<br><strong>Yours sincerely</strong><br>Mark" },
"test.msg");

Creates me a file with too many extra line-breaks and paragraphs.

We're not after miracles - basically want to have fairly simple html emails with
some bolding, and some links...

Can anyone help?
Thanks!
Mark.

In case if the conversion results doesn't suit you, try using a different conversion method from these.

Main purpose of Outlook Converter is to convert MSG format to EML and vice versa. As for RTF/HTML structures used within, only basic conversion is available. If that's not enough, you can use any third-party HTML-RTF converter with our component.

Thanks, you are correct that the RTF component of the MSG file is not converting properly.

By turning off RTF generation, and only generating HTML, it looks good in Outlook and good when received by other clients.

We are now purchasing a 4 developer license for MailBee.NET components...

Thanks,
Mark.
