Cant Send html file through email

Hi Everyone,
I am able to send the mail but the mail is comming as a text/plain message whereas actually it is complete html code. I know I should set the content type as text/html but dont know where is the ContentType class or the MIME header class.
I saw the package and in that the ContentHandler class, but this has a getContent() which takes a URL as parameter. So its of no help as such.
Can you let me know how do I resolve this problem

The only one difference between plain text and html is the way it is interpreted, unless you tell me that the html tags disappear en route (which is impossible).

Are you using the JavaMail API to create/send your e-mail?
