Sending Email from SharePoint via PowerShell - Mysterious Question Marks

March 21, 2018, at 08:13 AM

I have been searching all day for an answer to this. My PowerShell script reads from a SharePoint list, creates an HTML email, then sends it to everyone in the company.

For some reason, when I insert images, the images appear in the emails, but they always have a random question mark before or after the image. It is not the question mark in the black diamond that people talk about. It's using UTF-8. I've also tried Western European (ISO) and it still shows.

Here is an example of the line before I send the email, written to the host in PowerShell:

<img src="LINK" alt="ALT.png" style="margin:5px;width:382px;height:243px;" width = "300" >​<br></p></div></div></div></BODY>

and then when I view the source in Outlook after it's sent:

<img src="LINK" alt="ALT.png" style="margin:5px;width:382px;height:243px;" width="300">?<br></p></div></div></div></body></html>

Boom, random question mark at the end of the img tag. I've tried to do a replace: $emailtext = $emailtext.Replace("><", " " >")

Didn't work.

One more example of before sent with a different image:

<p style="text-align:center;">​<img src="LINK" alt="ALT.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:253px;height:111px;" width = "300" >

And after:

<p style="text-align:center;">?<img src="LINK" alt="ALT.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:253px;height:111px;" width="300">

Again, boom, random question mark. This time before the img tag.

Please help. I need to roll out these emails very soon and this would be a little embarrassing. Thanks!
