How to Display an Email?

Nov 13 '12 at 12:16

We are using Chilkat to email within our Microsoft Access applications. How do I create an email and display it to the client? The idea is to let the client add to the email body any comments before sending the email out.


The Chilkat objects do not provide anything directly for the display of an email. To display an HTML email requires something that can display HTML, and that means an embedded browser. If you are sending a plain-text only email, then you could create your own "form" within your app that could be populated with the various parts of an email, allows for the user to make changes, and then updates the email properties (Subject, Body, To, From, etc.) with the modifications.
