Simulator won't render Html - only shows the code.

I'm running the Email Server Simulator (ESS) and testing with a Blackberry Model 9810 using O/S 7.0. I am able to send an Html email to the simulator, however, when I veiw the message it just displays the Html code. Are these simulators capable of running the Html?

The ESS doesn't support the Attachment Service, which is required to render most attachments.  You can either test on a real BlackBerry Smartphone or connect the BlackBerry smartphone simulator to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server to test receiving attachments.

 

Connect the BlackBerry Device Simulator to a BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Thank you.  You've saved me a huge lesson in futility.

Re: Simulator won't render Html - only shows the code.

You know, I don't have a Blackberry device nor a Blackberry Exchange Server, nothing personal of course, but it still would be nice to find a solution so that we can test Html emails on the simulated versions.  We send email marketing messages for our clients and really try to provide Html versions of the emails that are 'Blackberry compatible'.  Would you know of any Blackbery Exchange Servers that we could connect to (either free or paid) for our testing purposes or would we just have to set up a server and purchase an account and plan etc.. on our own?
