I can not tell you how many people I’ve talked to or articles I’ve read regarding S60 devices not supporting HTML email out of the box. It seems that every time someone mentions the built-in email application, everyone cringes thinking about their HTML document getting dumped into a text only format. Well, I have a secret to share with you…

Open an email. Here’s the initial view. Highlight the attachment underneath the subject line.

Text only email...Text only email2

You’ll be brought to this screen instantly. Click on the Attachment.html file.

The attachment menu.

Here’s what opens.

HTML email 1

Press 8 on the keypad to view the page overview.

Page overview

From here, all of the links from the HTML document work just like they would if you were to pull them up in any other HTML email client. This is basically as simple as opening the HTML file in a browser window.

Now stop crying about Profimail!

  4. That theme is called S60 Black (v2) by Niimai. Unfortunately, he doesn’t offer his themes without accepting donations anymore, so I can’t host it on my site for free either. Here is the link to his site however.
