I want to send e-mails to our clients from java application.
My problem is i have to invoke the netscape messenger from my application. I did that(using mailto:// command). I don't want to use Javamail API,because i have to invoke the Messenger at client side.
I have to transfer the form data to corresponding fields in Netscape messenger(like TO,CC,BCC,SuBJECT,BODY).I am transering data in text format,but i have to send data in html format.
How can i set the Formating data as Text/html in the Netscape Messenger. (Server side we know that using MIME type).
In my case i don't know how to set text/html format.
If any one have experience in this, please let me know.
I will be greatly appeciate.

Thankx in advanch.

Check on the netscape support website.....
but I would be very surprised if you could do this.....
that type of control is handled by the mail client internally....
it will probably work OK as long as the user has his client enabled to transmit in HTML format...
otherwise, it will be converted to text.

I agree. Here's the link:
