Hi,

i have to convert Outlook messages that have embedded pictures to PDF. So i save them via OOM to disk, but wether using HTML or MHTML format i get PDFs with no pictures or i get an error message from ConvertFile(strMySavedMessagePath, strPDFFileName) telling me the input format is wrong. Any ideas or hints how to implement this? Thanks...

Well, PDF component supports pretty basic means of conversion. It converts simple documents such as tables (commonly used in invoicing). I doubt an arbitrary complex content can be converted with satisfactory results.

However. you can send us the HTML you're converting (via HelpDesk) and we'll see what we can do. Perhaps, the issue would be easy to resolve.

Regards,
Alex

Was there ever a resolution to this?

We have what appears to be pretty much the same use case. I have email messages I am pulling out of a mail server using the IMAP methods. We would like to save the email HTML body with INLINE attachments to a PDF for archival, ease-of-access purposes.

I can use the SaveHtmlAndRelatedFiles() method to save the message and inline attachments to disk, but would like to have them rendered as one, complete PDF.

Is this doable using MailBee? Any suggestions?

No, our PDF gen won't give you satisfactory results on arbitrarily complex HTML content. It's only for pretty simple HTML like invoices which you prepare yourself and can fine-tune some things if they don't look right.
