ICS - HTML Hotmail Messages

Hi,
I am sure that prior to updating to ICS I had HTML email messages from hotmail using exchange... now they are plain text and the option for HTML is greyed out.
Anyone else now having the same problem?
Thanks

Re: ICS - HTML Hotmail Messages

Yes, I presume that it as option, but I have 4 email accounts and it would be good to use the stock email client for all of them.

Can anyone confirm my thoughts that HTML was working prior to the ICS update on the stock email clint??

Thanks

Re: ICS - HTML Hotmail Messages

Hi Andy-D,

 

I have just set up a hotmail account on the HTC Sensation with the ICS update and can confirm that I have had no issues receiving an email in full HTML format.

 

Can I ask exactly what is happening when you get an email that contains HTML coding?

Re: ICS - HTML Hotmail Messages

I had Hotmail set up as an exchange account as I wanted Push Mail. I am still certain that HTML messages were OK before the update with Hotmail on exchange.

 

I have now set up the account as a POP3 account and yes all is OK with HTML emails..... but its not exchange :-(

 

As mentioned before, I dont realy want to use mutilple apps for my email when the stock one works fine.

 

Thanks

Hi Andy-D,

 

Thanks for the update here.

 

I have just set up my own hotmail account using the active sync and the option to activate HTML on the exchange hotmail account is greyed out with no way to select the option to change from plain text to HTML.

 

I have raised this with our devices team to see if there is something that I am missing however in the meantime the only solution would be to use an app as mentioned above or by added the accounts and setting the intervals to every hour.

Re: ICS - HTML Hotmail Messages

Hi Andy-D,

 

As James mentioned we have replicated this, and this has now been escalated to HTC for investigation.

 

In the meantime, we'd suggest setting up hotmail as a POP3 account rather than as an exchange account.
