Unable to get plain text from html

Hi there!

Currently I’m evaluating your api for sending emails with alternative views. Please find attached two documents.
Html_01.txt: Works perfect, I can get plain text via MailMessage.HtmlBodyText method.
Html_02.txt: Doesn’t work. I only get the same html text via MailMessage.HtmlBodyText.

I guess the problem is that the second html does contain not only a body part but also a head (complete html document). Is there a simple solution to get the plain text out of this kind of document?

Thank you for your help!
Mike Hachen


In Html_02.txt, in the tag, you use the charset=unicode attribute. Aspose.Email cannot recognize this encoding name. Please try to use the ‘utf-8’ value for charset attribute instead of ‘unicode’.



Thank you very much for your answer.

Is there no way that Aspose.Email can handle the meta-tag charset=unicode? The problem is that I have no control what text I have to send (the text is generated in a different program and I have no control about it). If I can avoid it I’d rather not change the incoming html text…

Thanks, Mike Hachen

Hi Mike,

As mentioned, the API doesn’t support the unicode charset in this case. We have inquired about this from our Product team and shall share the feedback once available in this regard.

Hi Muhammad

OK, thank you. I hope it will be soon available :slight_smile:

Greetings, Mike
