Unable to send HTML formatted e-mails with Evolution in Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10)

Submitted by Jochus on Wed, 16/06/2010 - 08:53 | Posted in: Linux

I've been using Evolution for a while now, together with the evolution-mapi plugin. The combination of the 2 packages, makes it possible to have a fully equivalent e-mail/agenda client as Outlook on your Ubuntu/Linux system. In this way, you can easily receive/send mails from M$ Exchange, get a list of all the people you can mail (~ addressbook :p), get your calendar, etc, etc, ...

Sounds great, but I have to say I'm having a small issue: I'm not able to send mails to my colleagues in HTML format :-( ... I didn't find the time to search for the issue, until today. I came across this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/evolution-mapi/+bug/361991. Bad luck for me, as the bug isn't fixed yet :-( ... So I'll hope they'll get it soon into their next release!
