Hi, I keep getting mails telling me "I can not receive HTML"

is this true?
Does the Desire have no HTML mail capabilities?
It looks so cool on my Palm Pre, why cant I have it on the Desire ?

HTML works fine. Make sure you have not selected "download text" only under the sync settings.

I assume you have also selected HTML format on your email server

Cool
ok, i found the "text only", it comes with the 1kb and 5kb mail size limit settings

But why does the mail not auto-size everything full screen (vert/horz) to include the complete mail ?
Should not be a problem with 600x800 resolution?!
it (rendering) works fine on my palm pre (320x480) and by pinching and clicking one can zoom in/out.

in case of the desire the mail autosizes fine horizontally in landscape mode but not in portrait mode.

one cant have it all i guess ...

Re: HTC Mail HTML yes/no?
For all my mail accounts this works, but does anyone know why I can't set this option to view HTML on my Exchange server mail account?
I can see the option, but I can't set it?!

Re: HTC Mail HTML yes/no?
html is only supported on exchange 2007 or 2003 with service pack 2.

Exchange only supports HTML email via Activesync in 2007 RTM and above

So if you have a 2003 or older exchange server then HTML no worky.

I wonder why it's not working. Before I used the exact same exchange account on my iPhone 3Gs and HTML was no problem at all. The server is running 2003. Now I'm just not able to change the mode from text-only to full HTML... Seems more like a softwareproblem or limitation which we should be able to work arround some how...

Well Exchange 2003 does not support HTML formatted emails via activesync

It renders them as text only.

You must be mistaken somewhere
