Dear ADX-Team.

I have an add-in working for several years, running on outlook versions 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.
The task of my add-in involves making duplicates of the email, and modifying the email's subject and attachments.
(but not the email-body).

Recently, a problem has occurred: Mails are sent as plain-text instead of HTML.

Customers reported that the problem started occurring after deploying Microsoft updates KB4011052 or KB4011078
on Outlook 2013/2016

I am using the latest version of Add-in Express for .NET.
The problem is also reported from customers running older versions.

I have found out, that adding the following 3 lines of code fixes the problem:

// get mail from saved copy
Outlook.MailItem templateItem = this.OutlookApp.CreateItemFromTemplate(messageFile.ToString()) as Outlook.MailItem;
// start of fix
string dummyBody = templateItem.HTMLBody;
templateItem.HTMLBody = "";
templateItem.HTMLBody = dummyBody;
// end of fix

One of our customers has reported the problem to Microsoft (they have other add-ins with the same problem), and I have been contacted by a Microsoft representative, who is very interested in resolving this issue.

My question is: Have you heard about this issue from other Add-in Express users (didn't find any on the forums) ?

Best regards
