      Priority: Urgent may work with some Email Software but unfortunately doesn’t work for all services

      would it be possible to provide an option to use?

      Content-Type:text/plain
      X-Priority: 1 (Highest)
      X-MSMail-Priority: High

      Yeah – it’s up to the provider to support Priority.

      i can see what it would take to add the other options as well, but it may be a little bit. I’ve got some contract work that I’m currently working on, so it may be a few weeks before I can even look into it.

      I’ll keep ya posted.

      Thanks for the suggestion!

      TBare,

      Thx … No worries …

      here is a link discussing X-Priority

      http://www.chilkatsoft.com/p/p_471.asp

      The lines posted are what I have used in email headers with sendmail in AIX which has worked well with all email services for many years

      Basically we build a raw plain text email file that contains all pertinent content; To:, From:, CC:, BCC:, Subject:, Headers, Body:, and can include Base64 encoded attachments (for PDF and/or Report Data) whenever applicable

      This file is then just included as a sendmail cli parameter

      sendmail -t < /eml/somefile.eml -f admin@fromhere.com

      File without attachments:

      To: somebody@somewhere.else
      From: me@from.here
      CC: archive@from.here
      BCC: the.boss@from.here
      Subject: Some Important Subject
      Content-Type: text/plain
      Return-Path: me@from.here
      X-Priority: 1 (Highest)
      X-MSMail-Priority: High

      Important Details!

      File with attachments:

      To: somebody@somewhere.else
      From: me@from.here
      CC: archive@from.here
      BCC: the.boss@from.here
      Return-Path: me@from.here
      X-Priority: 1 (Highest)
      X-MSMail-Priority: High
      Subject: Some Important Subject
      Disposition-Notification-To: me@from.here
      Mime-Version: 1.0
      Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=”_==mixed–_”
      _==mixed==_

      Important Details!

      _==mixed==_
      Content-Type: application/pdf; name=”some.important.pdf”
      Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
      Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=”some.important.pdf”

      lots of base64 gibberish (8 bit content converted to 7 bit)

      _==mixed==_

      3 suggestions:

      1) provide an option to allow users to include their own raw email file like sendmail does

      2) provide an option for users to add custom headers

      3) add an option that allows users to select 1 or more priority styles

      a) Priority: urgent
      b) Importance: high
      c) X-Priority: 1 (highest)
      d) X-MSMail-Priority: High

      hey, bxdobs —

      Just wanted to let you know i just pushed an update a few minutes ago (2.2.3.0) that addresses this issue. I’ve added additional headers and this should help out.

      Thanks for noticing this and reporting, as well as the links you provided – made my job a bit easier 🙂

      you can grab the new version here: https://www.tbare.com/software/swithmail/
