Do you have OS 4.5 installed on the HH?

First, please know that BES is out of my league.

But as I understand it, if you have SP6 installed, and OS 4.5 on the HH, you should be in order.

**I am going to move these three posts over to the BES Admin area**

I have 4.1.6 installed and HTML worked for me once I had loaded 4.5.0.55.

Ok, HTML works great! But....it only works on mine when someone replies. Odd.

When I create a new email from my device and send, its RTF, when I reply to an existing HTML email, it stays HTML. Odd...

You can't compose messages in HTML format.
You can only compose in plain text.

The HTML capabilities of the BlackBerry are only for viewing received messages, not sending.

When I reply to an existing message, in HTML, it is sent as HTML. Viewing is fine, but would like to compose it in HTML.

If I can reply in HTML I know its possible.

I'll say it again... But feel free to ignore it if you want.

I understand what your saying. Just hard for me to belive that if I reply to an email sent to me, from outlook, in HTML.....I should in theory be able to start a new email in HTML. I know its not an obvious setting, not documented in the release notes, and most have given up...but isnt most the fun we have with these devices non standard or hacked?

I am going to look into this more....the world was not made by people who accept every answer given to them as “the way”

Although you always reply in outlook to the same format the messages you receive in outlook, no matter what default compose you have in replying, blackberry's aside. maybe they have gone for the same vibe?

if that makes any sense with my awful diction

My provider hasn't released an updated version of the device software to test this with, so I'm just guessing here, but surely you're oversimplifying this a wee bit?

It's one thing to render and display HTML pulled down from the server, however surely it's another to provide editing capabilities within the device that allows you to select bold, italic, colour choice, font, tables, etc.. when composing an e-mail?

When you respond to e-mails received with HTML formatting, can you change text styles in your actual reply? If not, then the device isn't performing any differently in a reply than it is in a new message.

Good point. But that alone would satify me if I could send them all in that one, HTML format that I would set, one time. I imigine if I take it apart enough it is possible.

Wouldn't this be akin to your web browser offering you HTML markup capabilities in addition to its basic task of allowing you to view the web?
