Hi, I 've tried several methods to send html format mail to the viewer Novell GroupWise but failed. The methods I have tried: 1. use setConent of MimeMessage and set the message type to text/html 2. create bodypart and add the content: Sb -- StringBuffer msg.setDataHandler(new DataHandler( new ByteArrayDataSource(sb.toString(), "text/html"))); 3. send the html content as attached file MimeBodyPart mbp = new MimeBodyPart(); File file = new File("Mime.822"); FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(file); out.write(sb.toString().getBytes()); FileDataSource fds = new FileDataSource(file); mbp.setDataHandler(new DataHandler(fds)); msg.setContent(mbp); The sent email is plain text instead of html format and looks like: --18658963.1028124230568.JavaMail.SYSTEM.tis <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>Test</TITLE> </HEAD> <BODY> ... </BODY> </HTML> --18658963.1028124230568.JavaMail.SYSTEM.tis-- Can anyone help me? Any advise is very welcomed. Thanks.

Assuming that you have the JavaMail API and the Java Activation Framework, you can read this article on Basic HTML Sending.
