MailMessage.BodyEncoding Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets the encoding used to encode the message body.

Namespace: System.Net.Mail
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public Encoding BodyEncoding { get; set; }
/** @property */
public Encoding get_BodyEncoding ()

/** @property */
public void set_BodyEncoding (Encoding value)

public function get BodyEncoding () : Encoding

public function set BodyEncoding (value : Encoding)

Property Value

An Encoding applied to the contents of the Body.

The value specified for the BodyEncoding property sets the character set field in the Content-Type header. The default character set is "us-ascii".

If you set the BodyEncoding property to UTF8, Unicode, or UTF32, the Framework selects a TransferEncoding of Base64 for this MailMessage.

The following code example demonstrates creating a mail message that uses UTF8 encoding.

MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to);
message.Body = "This is a test e-mail message sent by an application. ";
// Include some non-ASCII characters in body and subject.
string someArrows = new string(new char[] {'\u2190', '\u2191', '\u2192', '\u2193'});
message.Body += Environment.NewLine + someArrows;
message.BodyEncoding =  System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
message.Subject = "test message 1" + someArrows;
message.SubjectEncoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
