Unhappy Include html on a velocity template mail.

Hi everyone.

I hope you can help me with my project.

Here's the story.

Right now we send notification emails using a velocity template (apache and java), the thing is that the notification engine call the Email.vm file to add all the information and variables. This process only attach the information (text) on the .vm file.

We need to send that email on html. The thing is that if we write the html code on the file, when the .vm file is called that email includes the code not the result of the html.

We have tried adding the headers and everything.

The question is:

Is there some way that we can pre-process the html code and include to that email the result?

Or can we tell the .vm file that it should be handle as html? (like php for example <?php ?>, the <html> and </html> tags doesn't work.

Thanks for your help, I hope this post is clear enough.

There's probably a call to htmlentities or htmlspecialchars somewhere in the template. Both are PHP functions that make HTML code display as code.
