    I have a Silverlight application that uses Database Mail from SQL Server.


    I want to give the user the possibility to create a template for the e-mail body with following options:

    1. the template is saved as HTML
    2. the user should be able to enter/select placeholders that will be replaced with database fields (eg. ##CustomerName##)

    Would you recommend the RichTextBox for that? Or do you perhaps know of a solution for this?

    Hello Ronald,
    RadRichTextBox supports 'Mail merge' feature, which may satisfy your requirements. Note that merge fields are not supported in HTML, so you may have to switch to the native XAML format, docx, or RTF for template storage. You can checkout the online demo and the corresponding help article.
