    mail for windows 10 not showing html attachments


    Astonishing, mail for windows 10 does not show the html attachments of an email, whereas outlook 2016 does!

    Tweaking the "Automatically Download External Content" in the Setup > Reading pane does not help at all.


    Why? Some ideas for "how to" ?

    :)

    Viewing attachments in HTML e-mails

    I saw that thread, but it's unrelated to the problem I'm having. The user there is complaining of an inability to view e-mail messages that are forwarded as attachments, while .jpg and .pdf files, etc. are fine. What I'm noticing is that .jpg and other image
    file types are excluded from the listing of attachments to an HTML e-mail altogether after being downloaded, so that if they're not embedded in the message using HTML <img> tags, they are impossible to view on the phone.

    I believe what's happening is that image files are suppressed from the attachment list for HTML e-mails so that mass-mailings and newsletters with a lot of images don't show a massive list of attachments for all the embedded images. It makes some sense to
    suppress a listing of embedded image file attachments for this reason. Butall image file attachments are being suppressed from the listing if the e-mail is composed in HTML format rather than using plain text. So if I e-mail an image from
    Outlook on my computer to a friend who's using WP7, he won't be able to see the attachment if I have Outlook set to compose in HTML. If it's set to compose in plain text, the attachment shows up just fine.

    It's quite annoying to receive e-mails from friends that obviously have attached images, but not be able to see the image until I get to my computer. This one really should be addressed.

    Viewing attachments in HTML e-mails

    I've noticed that when I receive e-mails with photos attached, in some cases the attachment isn't viewable on my phone. While the paperclip icon appears in the message list, once viewing the message, there are no attachments shown. The first time the message
    is viewed, a link to "Download message and internet pictures" will appear at the bottom, but once the download is complete, the link disappears and no additional content is displayed. This seemed to be tied to messages I received from particular senders, rather
    than the type of account that's being synced. (I have both an Exchange account (account appears as "Outlook" on the phone) and a Gmail account synchronized on my phone, and have seen reports of other people experiencing similar behavior with POP3.)

    I did some troubleshooting on this one, sending e-mails to my personal Exchange account from my work e-mail account. I found that if I set my work e-mail to compose in plain text, the message and attachments appear perfectly when viewed on my phone. If I
    compose the e-mail in HTML, however, then if I simply attach an image without embedding it in the body of the message, the aforementioned behavior (link to download internet content) persists. If I attach other files (e.g. pdfs) along with the images, they
    show up properly as attachments, but the images are still considered "internet pictures" that don't display even once they're downloaded since they're not embedded in the body of the message.

    I understand why it could be desirable to suppress listing of all attached images that are embedded in an image-rich HTML e-mail message, but suppressing the listing of all images attached to HTML-formatted e-mails leads to it being very difficult to do
    something simple like send a picture via e-mail and view it on my phone. There's got to be a better way here.

    Does anyone know of a workaround to view attached images in HTML-formatted e-mail messages on Windows Phones? Or is this a bug we'll just have to wait for Microsoft to (hopefully) address in one of the updates?

    Where is HTML signature in Windows 10 Mail

    On Microsoft's Windows 10 help site, the instructions to add signatures are as follows:

    Change Windows Mail signature settings

    You can use the Signatures tab in the Windows Mail Options dialog box to create and modify custom signatures for your messages. Signatures can contain your name, e‑mail address, phone number, and any other information that you want to include at the bottom
    of your e‑mail messages. To access the Signatures tab:


    • Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.

    • Click the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Signatures tab.

    Show all
    Create
    a signature


    To create a signature:


    • Under Signatures, click New.

    • Under Edit Signature, do one of the following:

      • In the Text box, type your signature.

      • Click File, click Browse, click the text or HTML file that contains your signature, and then click Open.

    • Click OK.

    Tip

    • If you want to create a signature containing custom fonts or graphics, design the signature using a word processor or HTML editor and save it as an HTML file. Then follow the steps above to select that file as a signature.

    I can't find the button to add an HTML file in the signature options — where is it ?
