Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Visits Workcenter
  2. Search for Visits ABC
  3. Navigate to Attendees tab
  4. Select an Attendee
  5. Select on More
  6. Select Send Summary
  7. Type some message in the Message field with formatting
  8. Choose Send

Observe the Outlook Mail received has PDF, but the Message appears in one single line and the formatting is lost.


Outlook does not display E-mail text formatting from Rich or Formatted text; the message is displayed without line breaks, thus only the plaintext of the E-mail is supported.


This is the Standard System Behaviour.
