I haven't had any success attempting to send a HTML format e-mail using the Alteryx E-mail tool. The tool doesn't recognise when the body is HTML or provide the option of configuring the tool to send the e-mail as HTML format. As a result the HTML gets sent as plain text.
The render tool can be used to render the HTML into an image and passed into the Body of the Email tool however this means that an image is sent rather than HTML and the href links can't work.
I'm currently sending e-mail using the bmail command line client (in a Run Command tool) so that e-mails can be sent as HTML.
Has anyone else experienced this problem or found a solution using built in tools?
I've just added it as an enhancement, I forgot to do it. We have been using command line email client to send HTML e-mails but it would be better if it was built-in. It's common that people want to send HTML rather than just plain text.
