To Send a email in HTML format using QTCPSocket

  • i am using qt4
    i had seen the example for SMTP using that i had send a Plain text
    now i need to send the HTML format mail
    here i got some problem ...........
    i can send a HTML file when the Header is not set(header means To address , from address , subject)
    only the content
    when i send both Header and Content
    it takes the content as Plain text
    so plz give me some tips
    my coding is below contain the body and header

    Smtp::Smtp( const QString &from, const QString &to, const QString &subject , const QString &body ,const QString &address,int port)
    socket = new QTcpSocket(this);
    connect( socket, SIGNAL(readyRead()), this, SLOT( readyRead() ) );
    connect( socket, SIGNAL( connected()), this, SLOT( connected() ) );
    connect(socket, SIGNAL(disconnected()), this,SLOT(disconnected()));

    message = "To: " + to + "\n";
    message.append("From: " + from + "\n");
    message.append("Subject: " + subject + "\n");

    //Let's intitiate multipart MIME with cutting boundary "frontier"
    message.append("MIME-Version: 1.0\n");
    message.append("Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=frontier\n\n");

    message.append( "--frontier\n" );

    message.append( "Content-Type: text/html\n\n" ); //Uncomment this for HTML formating, coment the line below

    message.append( "--frontier--\n" );
    message.replace( QString::fromLatin1( "\n" ), QString::fromLatin1( "\r\n" ) );
    message.replace( QString::fromLatin1( "\r\n.\r\n" ),QString::fromLatin1( "\r\n..\r\n" ) );
    this->from = from;
    rcpt = to;
    state = Init;
    socket->connectToHost( address,port);//"", 25);
    t = new QTextStream( socket );
    if(socket->waitForConnected ( 30000 ))
    {qDebug("connected"); }


    while execute it
    i receive the mail only in Plain text
    if i remove the header like to , from , subject
    i can receive the Html format

    thanks in advance
