vbSendmail issue with the RFC 821 1000 character limitation of a line

Hi,

Does anyone know how to get around the 1000 character line limit using vbSendMail? When I send a line of a 1000 characters asHTML the email message has a ! in the message?

Thanks

RE: vbSendmail issue with the RFC 821 1000 character limitation of a line

Sure.
The code is freely available. So just download from http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.asp?ID=109

Then access the code in sendmail.cls, and modify the const MAX_TEXTLINE_LEN. Or modify the code that applies that const (which is in the FormatMail function).
Recompile as a new DLL ...

Of course you'll then be breaking RFC 821, but what the heck ...

Thanks, I have the code I previous changed the mx query side to add in new TLD's. I was going to make the change described but was worried about the RFC 821.

Thanks again.
