Hi,
Is there a way to convert messages from MIME to Exchange format (and vice versa).
I mean that i have an ASCII MIME file and i want to make an Exchange message of it.

Thanks,
Isak.

Multipurpose Internet Mail Exchange (MIME) is supported by Exchange. To select the attachment type used for sending attachments in Internet mail, follow these steps:
 
1. In Control Panel, double-click the Mail And Fax icon.
 
2. Open the Internet Mail profile, click Internet Mail, and then click Properties.
 
3. On the General tab, click Message Format. To use MIME format, click the Use MIME When Sending Messages check box to select it. To use UUENCODE format, clear the Use MIME When Sending Messages check box.
 
4. Click OK.
 
MIME Details:
 
The MIME format has certain defined file types. To see the available file types for MIME format, follow these steps:
 
1. Double-click My Computer.
 
2. On the View menu, click Options.
 
3. On the File Types tab, registered file types are listed in the
   Registered File Types box. Click each file type and check the
   File Type Details box to see if Content Type MIME is listed.
   If it is, the file type is available for MIME file attachment.
 
NOTE: Microsoft Exchange includes a native Internet mail connector that supports both the RFC 822 and RFC 1521 (MIME) specifications.
 
UUENCODE Details:
 
UUENCODE coding and decoding is taken care of automatically if both the sending and receiving mail programs support UUENCODE. If not, you must run a UUENCODE or UUDECODE tool to convert a non-ASCII text message. Microsoft does not supply UUENCODE or UUDECODE tools.

Hope this helps - good luck.

hi,
Thanks for the answer.
There are steel some problems. In the General Tab of the interenet service I don't have "Message Format". Also what I ment in the question is that I want a function to convert to/from MAPI format. I'm writing an extention to outlook and would like to translate the message manually.

Thanks, Isak.
