Dear Friends,

I already download emails from POP3, but attachments is as a body-part of emails. I want download attachments separatly from email body. How can I do this?

Note for Alex : This mean I want download (read) email body (from POP3 server) seperate from attachment. !!... Not while send it, When I read it. (Not with MAPI, I want it with SMTP/POP3)

Thanks a lot
John

hi all,

PJ Naughter done a lot for us :

http://indigo.ie/~pjn/pop3.html

Override the GetBody method searching an extension field
( rfc 822 and 1725 http://www.rfc.net)

You'll find that extension by filtering your message body.

Example: (From a mail i received)

..... <- header stuff and first part of the mail

--------------XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX                 <- separator for multipart mail
Content-Type: application/x-zip-compressed;            <- the type of file attached
 name="hello.zip"                                         <- the name of the attached document  :)
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: inline;
 filename="hello.zip"

UEsDBBQAAAAIAARRZyh2ke4FAwIAAP8EAAAPAAAAdGVzdF9yZXNlYXUuY2x3tZNNb5tAEIbv
SPwHlF6tyiwkJqn2gBfbRcVGMuu4UlShNR43tBgsdlGS/vouXwbbsXLKjZ192Hdm3plvGvHW
2i5OQIuyVLA4 ....               <- binary stuff

The extension could be /x-text, /octet-stream, video/quicktime and so on.

You can find some other by launching explorer -> display -> options -> file type : then you'll find the common extension used on your computer.

Sometime you'll find before your body, it helps to know if there is something attached :

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

in your body.

I hope it help
