Custom font not working in MailMessage RRS feed

  • Question

  • <style type="text/css">p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 12.0px 0.0px; line-height: 14.0px; font: 12.0px Times; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; line-height: 14.0px; font: 12.0px Courier; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; line-height: 14.0px; font: 12.0px 'Courier New'; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} span.s2 {font: 12.0px 'Courier New'; font-kerning: none} span.s3 {font: 12.0px Courier; font-kerning: none} </style>


    I am trying to send below body using MailMessage and the IsBodyHtml is working fine but I am not getting the expected font.

    Where is the problem here?

    body = "<html dir='rtl' lang='ar'>";
    body += "<head>";
    body += "<meta charset='UTF-8'>";
    body += "<meta name='viewport' content='width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0'>";
    body += "<link href=';subset=arabic' rel='stylesheet' />";
    body += "</head>";
    body += "<body dir='rtl' lang='ar' style='font-family: Changa'>";
    body += "<h1 style='font-family: Changa'>السلام عليكم " + App.getUserInfo("JafariaUserFirstName") + "</h1>";
    body += "تم استلام الحجز التالي وسيتم الاتصال بكم لتأكيد الحجز:<br /><br />";
    body += "<br /><br />";
    body += "شكرا<br />";
    body += "<br /><br />";</a>";
    body += "</body>";
    body += "</html>";

  • Hi Jassim Rahma,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, if you want to specify the font in your email, you should use Html email format instead of Plain text email format.

    Please refer to the example in the link below.

    Best Regards,

  • You problem is most likely because of Link tag within Head tags is not supported by a number of webmail.

    Check this link for compatability.
