ActionMailer HTML emails appear as HTML code in email client


#1

Hi

I’m trying to send multipart emails with something like this:

Taken from http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionMailer/Base.html

[code=] class ApplicationMailer < ActionMailer::Base
def signup_notification(recipient)
recipients recipient.email_address_with_name
subject “New account information”
from “removed_email_address@domain.invalid”
content_type “multipart/alternative”

  part :content_type => "text/html",
    :body => render_message("signup-as-html", :account =>

recipient)

  part "text/plain" do |p|
    p.body = render_message("signup-as-plain", :account =>

recipient)
p.transfer_encoding = “base64”
end
end
end[/code]
I have 2 view files signup-as-html.text.html.erb and signup-as-
plain.text.plain.erb

I sent a test email and picked it up in Apple Mail but it displays the
HTML code instead of rendering it.

Any idea why?

Mark

This article got me working:

Still seems broken though
