Hi @oshan

You mean you dont need any thing in body other than This is auto generated mail, do not reply ?

If you have any specific content for body , have it as HTML one and use it.

Thank you!!!. But i can able to use br tag directly to add new line.

If your requirement is to add only breaks, you don’t have to get the pain of writing Html code in txt file and reading them. You can add those line breaks inline with vbNewLine or Environment.NewLine

Hello Mani,

i am using “Reply To outlook Mail Message” activity and formatted the email body with “environment.NewLine” for creating newline.
However the body remains “unformatted” and complete plain text.
Looking for some help here.

Any solution for this? I want to reply as a HTML body template

I also had this problem, but then I discovered that when I pass HTML text to the mail body’s variable as part of the Reply to Outlook Mail Message activity, it is formatted correctly, even though there isn’t an option for ‘IsBodyHTML’.
