(Visual Basic 6.0) Controlling Charset of HTML Email

This example demonstrates how to change the charset of an HTML email by setting the Charset property.

Chilkat ActiveX Downloads

ActiveX for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows

'  This example requires the Chilkat Email API to have been previously unlocked.
'  See Unlock Chilkat MailMan for sample code.

Dim success As Long

Dim email As New ChilkatEmail

'  Tell Chilkat you want the email to be utf-8.
email.PreferredCharset = "utf-8"

email.From = "somebody@gmail.com"
success = email.AddTo("Joe","joe_somebody@gmail.com")
email.Subject = "This is a test"

'  Load a utf-8 HTML file that will be the body of this email.
'  The HTML contains this line to specify the charset:
' 
'      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
' 
'  The sample HTML is available here:  https://chilkatsoft.com/exampleData/sample_utf8.html
' 
Dim sbHtml As New ChilkatStringBuilder
success = sbHtml.LoadFile("qa_data/html/sample_utf8.html","utf-8")

email.SetHtmlBody sbHtml.GetAsString()

'  If this email was sent as-is, it would look like this:
Dim mailman As New ChilkatMailMan
Debug.Print mailman.RenderToMime(email)

'  The MIME that would be sent is this:

'  	MIME-Version: 1.0
'  	Date: Wed, 08 Mar 2017 09:39:06 -0600
'  	Message-ID: <53930EB7EFA37B121FB2CC0E57E9FA4D02AD86A3@CHILKAT13>

'  	X-Priority: 3 (Normal)
'  	From: somebody@gmail.com
'  	To: Joe <joe_somebody@gmail.com>
'  	Subject: This is a test
' 
'  	<html>
'  	<head>
'  	<meta http-equiv=3D"Content-Type" content=3D"text/html; charset=3Dutf-8" />

'  	=B8=C3=A5=C3=85</p>
'  	</body>
'  	</html>
' 

'  -----------------------------------------
'  Let's say we want to send iso-8859-1 instead...
'  Just set the email object's Charset property, like this:
email.Charset = "iso-8859-1"

'  Now see what would be sent:
Debug.Print mailman.RenderToMime(email)

'  	MIME-Version: 1.0

'  	<html>
'  	<head><META http-equiv=3D"Content-Type" content=3D"text/html;charset=3Diso-=

'  	=9F=E5=C5</p>
'  	</body>
'  	</html>

'  -----------------------------------------
'  Let's say we don't want quoted-printable, but instead want 8bit.
'  The AddHeaderField method replaces the header field if it already exists.
'  Do this to get 8bit encoding instead of quoted-printable.
email.AddHeaderField "Content-Transfer-Encoding","8bit"
'  Now see what would be sent:
'  (Note: Because RenderToMime returns a string, it generally not possible to render MIME to a string
'  IF the MIME contains binary data and uses the 8bit encoding (for example, if a JPEG image was attached).
'  However, the email would still be sent correctly.)
Debug.Print mailman.RenderToMime(email)
