Mailto showing html formatting in Outlook

  • 1.  Mailto showing html formatting in Outlook

    Posted 29 days ago

    Hi everyone,

    I have a formula url with the following code:

    "mailto:" & [External Email Addresses] & "?subject=" & URLEncode([Email Subject]) & "&body=" & URLEncode([Email Body]) & "&cc=" & URLEncode([Internal Email List])

    The Email Body field is Rich Text Field in Quick Base.

    When I click on the button with sample data I get the results on the two screenshots included.  Any ideas on how to prevent the html from showing?

    The mailto command will only accept plain text.  You will need to have the body be plain text.

    So do I just make the field a multi-line text field?  If I do that do I keep the URLEncode around it or get rid of that?  I assume keep it since I have spaces etc.
