Hello there,
I got following situation here:
I am dynamically creating an *.mht file on my server which send needs to be send to a recipient by e-mail. So I'm creating the e-mail on the server with following code
Dim msg As New System.Web.Mail.MailMessage
Dim smtp As System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail
smtp.SmtpServer = mailsvr
msg.To = "..."
msg.From = "..."
....
msg.Attachments.Add(New System.Web.Mail.MailAttachment(strMhtPath)
msg.Send()

The Message arrives at the recipient. It does have an Attachment, but without name i.e. an "Untitled Attachment". When I open the file I can see the contents of the mht. So it is transmitted correctly. However, I absolutely need to have the file Name to show up. I can't sell it like this to my boss :-)
The filename is included in the mail's header, so that seems a little bit weird to me.
Hope someone can help me out here

I don't know if this will help you, but I have VS.NET 2003, and I ran this with an attachment, and the file name was present in the attachment.
