  • Stephen Thomas has a good pre-built solution for retrieving email messages from a POP3 receive port found here: He has a sample you can use as a starting point.

    The message will come in as a multi-part message and the message body is usually in the first part - msgPart[0]

  • Hi Ben..
    Thanks for your reply...
    I tried using your sugesstion but i am having problem..
    So i tried like this...first i have one variable(Var1) of type System.String then i wrote
    Var1 = Message_in.Message_body.text;

    then i read this variable value in Xml element by writing ..

    Message_Out.Body = Var1;
    this way i can get the text but..the problem is that in body of email there is one table and two hyperlinks..
    So my concern is when i read the body of message to a String Variable will the format of body will remain intact and the hyperlink will be active if i again resend this email to another person using Biztalk..

  • The difficulty in answering this is that it varies. Usually the body will stay intact unless the content/type of the email message is something other than what BizTalk expects. It is also possible to structure an email in such a way that Biztalk cannot process it successfully.

    Also, if the email is formatted as HTML, I would do a test to see if all of the CSS formatting comes through correctly - complicated HTML emails usually work but getting all of the CSS styles to work like you would expect them to can sometimes be a little more work.
