Managing Recipient Settings

Use the HTML MIME Option

If a mailbox-enabled user can interpret HTML, select the MIME option of Provide message body as HTML. When selected, this option allows messages to display graphics, support links to other documents, and retain character formatting.

Important   When you select the MIME option of Provide message body as HTML, you cannot select the UUEncode or Microsoft Exchange rich-text format options.

To configure POP3 settings using the HTML MIME option:

  1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. In Active Directory Users and Computers, on the View menu, click Advanced Features.
  3. In the console tree, expand the Windows 2000 domain. Double-click Users, or double-click the node that contains the recipient information you want to modify.
  4. In the details pane, double-click the mailbox-enabled user you are configuring POP3 settings for.
  5. On the Exchange Advanced tab, click Protocol Settings.
  6. In the Protocols dialog box, select POP3, and then click Settings.
  7. In the POP3 Protocol Details dialog box, select the Enable for mailbox check box, and then click to clear the Use protocol defaults check box.
  8. To display received messages as HTML, under Message encoding, select MIME, and then select Provide message body as HTML.
  9. In the Default character set drop-down list, select a character set.
