*There have been reports that this does not work on 6.5 roms. Please use at your own risk.*

It's discussed in this thread: HERE

Turns out its an issue with the htmlnote.dll file.

Thanks to all the help from everybody!

Cab replaces htmlnote.dll in the Windows directory with a friendlier one.

Both SMS and email work!


This has been a recent problem that's come up in many different threads but I still have yet to find a solution.
When selecting a message from the message tab in M2D the message is highlighted and you have to manually tap on the text box to start typing.
It's much easier to select the message and just start typing right away.

Is there a fix for this yet that I just can't find?

I've been looking as well, and I haven't come across anything.

I've seen it within many different ROM's threads with no final answer or fix. I thought I'd try to collect it into one place since I know there are many different people with the same situation.

I have the same problem. Also if I have an SMS thread open while receiving messages to the conversation. It does not mark them as "read" I have to open the conversation for each message received. If I have 4 SMS messages from the same number I should be able to open it once and have all messages marked as read in that conversation.

theres a temp fix for the unread sms issue. if u search for unread sms fix (i think thats what its called) ull find an exe that will fix that issue. u have to run it every time it happens but like i said its a temp fix. Ill post a link or the file when i get home.

thanks i found it. this site is great, filled with all kinds of info but sometimes it is hard to find.

**a side note the fix you suggested also fixed the original issue in this post.

I think its just the problem with cooking process (you know blending sys and oem packages and stuff like that!). Some of the ROM's here do have that problem. Usually G's tend not to, but it all depends on the flavor of the day!

FINALLY SOLVED!!! Thanks to rsw686 for the file and stylez for the cab!

Turns out its just a missing dll file. Kind of strange IMO but oh well, it works!

That fixed the SMS issue for me, however it seems to have broken e-mail. The read/unread icon doesn't display, and I can't open any e-mail or start a new message. Any ideas?

Funny you said that as i just checked and same here?
Please other peeps check your email amd see if it's broke, seems like even renaming htmlnote.dll to htmlnote.dllold so as the ROM recreates the file does not seem to fix it......

That's a shame, it got the SMS to work perfectly. Though I suppose that an annoyance with the SMS is better than completely broken e-mail. Seems like there must be a way to have both though.
