VB Outlook content encoding

Hi all,

I am trying to send a file via outlook to another email address. Everytime I send the email it gets base 64 encoded. I need the email to go through to the other address without this encoding on it.

Any help much appreciated,

Regards
Ross

I believe the answer depends on what version of Outlook you are using.  This may help: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q278134

Oops, my fingers were too fast.  I meant to add that I checked through the Outlook object model and I don't see any place to specify message encoding.

Cheers for the reply dude,

I think it may be a mail server issue. We've switched from a server called Mdaemon to Exchange. If I use the Mdaemon account the mail gets sent 7bit, if I use the exchange server it goes base 64. Can't find any info on the net, help!!

regards
Ross
