HTML Invoice shows HTML markup

    Hello,

    I have "Email Invoices/Statements HTML based" set to YES. When I send an invoice, it uses Outlook 2003. Outlook 2003 is set to send an email as HTML as default. When the invoice is sent, it shows the HTML markup instead. An example is as follows:

    <HTML><TT>

    You would need to send via SMTP.

    Hi Shawn,

    I changed it to SMTP & it did send the message correctly, but I don't see much difference between the Plain Text invoices & the HTML invoices. I was under the impression the HTML invoices would include my logo at the top, just like a printed invoice.

    Is it at all possible to send the invoices as a PDF? Perhaps in a future version of Optigold?

    Thank you for your help!

    Really the only difference is the HTML version is able to force spacing for clients that use a variable width font so the columns line up correctly.

    COPY the content and paste it in ms word file and save this with .html extension.
    when you click the file the file will be opened in browser.
    so try to send this file .
    or use smtp simple mail transfer protocol to avoid this problem

    Check your SMTP, seems to be a problem with your mail server.

    no that wasn't the problem 4 years ago when i made this post. We no longer use Optigold. We use WHMCS instead now.
