BPS upgrade - HTML email

I have been out of the loop for a while and was wondering if BB finally managed to upgrade BPS to enable HTML email?

There is no upgrade at this time for HTML.

There is 4.1.4b available and Interim Security Software Updates

Re: BPS upgrade - HTML email

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately we won't need a security update - looks like we will have to move on to a different system that can deliver HTML email. 

 

Embarrassing enough not to be able to do that for such a long time.

My guess as to why there is no HTML email for BPS

[ Edited ]

I do not know the real answer as to why there is no HTML yet, but this is only a guess as to why.

 

Impact of Supporting HTML and Rich-content Email Messages

Think about BPS being installed on a mail server and what the extra load might do to it.

Re: My guess as to why there is no HTML email for BPS

Well, we are talking about small businesses with maybe 2-10 users so I don't think that performance is the issue. I think it is more a political issue for RIM not to be interested in small accounts which from a business perspective might make sense.

DING!

 

BPS has been playing 3rd fiddle (GroupWise gets 2nd fiddle position) for a while.  Why isn't the feature there?  I can think of no reason other than revenue.

 

I'm sorry you're in this boat; it sucks Smiley Sad
