Supporting Messaging Clients

Specify Message Formats

You can specify the message format that SMTP should use when sending mail to the specified domain.

Important   If you want to encode messages in MIME with HTML, Exchange Rich Text Format is not supported.

To specify message formats:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Double-click Global Settings, and then click Internet Message Formats.
  3. In the details pane, right-click a name, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Message Format tab.
  5. In Message encoding, select either MIME or UUEncode.
  6. Tip   If you select MIME you can further define how the message is formatted. To display text only and replace graphics and active links with textual representations, select Provide message body as plain text. To display graphics and links to other documents, select Provide message body as HTML. To provide both plain text and HTML when you aren't sure which format the client can read, select Both.

  7. If you select UUEncode, you can specify that you support Macintosh clients. To use BinHex, which is an encoding scheme similar to uuencode but is a more common format for Macintosh files, select Use BinHex for Macintosh.

  8. To apply the selected MIME or uuencode settings to non-MAPI clients, select Apply content settings to non-MAPI clients.
  9. To support multilingual messages, in Character sets, choose a code page from the MIME and Non-MIME messages drop-down lists. Microsoft Windows uses code pages to read messages containing international character sets.
