hi,
 ARE U USING THE mapI, OR SOME THIRD PARTY CONTROL ??
 This is what I find in the help of mailsession.mailReadMessage()

Reading attachments :  If a message has an attachment and you don't suppress attachments, information about it is stored in the AttachmentFile property of the mailMessage object. The AttachmentFile property is a mailFileDescription object. Its PathName property has the location of the temporary file that mailReadMessage created for the attachment. By default, the temporary file is in the directory specified by the TEMP environment variable.

You can copy these temp files to required location.

Hi,
I use the MAPI.
What does it means suppress attachment? why should I suppress?

AttachmentFile will give me the files name. what do I do with mailFileDescription
or how I connect it to something and do a file download? when does it put the file intemporary path?

do you have code example to implement it?

thanks,
Ofer

Hi Ofen,

 I have not used the anove functions, so don't have any code.

Here's code snippet from PB Help :
Suppose you alredy have a mailsession connected (mSes)

mailMessage msg

long n, c_row

mSes.mailGetMessages()
FOR n = 1 to UpperBound(mSes.MessageID[])
    mSes.mailReadMessage(mSes.MessageID[n], msg, mailEnvelopeOnly! , FALSE)
    c_row = dw_1.InsertRow(0)
    dw_1.SetItem(c_row, "msgid", mSes.MessageID[n])
    dw_1.SetItem(c_row, "msgdate", msg.DateReceived)
    // Truncate subject to fit defined column size
    dw_1.SetItem(c_row, "msgsubject",   Left(msg.Subject, 50))
NEXT

Now if you want to see/move attachments of  say message no 6, then you can call

mSes.mailReadMessage(mSes.MessageID[6], msg, mailEntireMessage! , FALSE) // or use mailBodyAsFile!

After this call, the temporary files will be created. Now check the AttachmentFile[ ]       property

ls_nunAttachments = Upperbound( msg.AttachmentFile[ ])

 And you will have the path/name of temporary files corresponding to each attachment in the PathName property of each msg.AttachmentFile.

Hope this helps,
regards,
Vikas Dixit
