Well, i wanna send some emails with attachment, like pics for example. But all file types that i tried are converted to .dat files. So Me.jpg became Me.dat when i receive the email. I tryed all 3 attachmentype properties (mapDATA, mapEOLE, mapSOLE), nothing happens. Please, how can i send doc, jpeg, gif, exe files using MAPI? By the way, im using Visual Basic 6, Windows XP and Outlook Express. Thanks.

Are you using MAPI controls? If so,have you tried:

With frmMain.MAPIMessages1
    .MsgIndex = -1
    .RecipDisplayName = "someone@somewhere.com"
    .MsgSubject = "Subject line"
    .AttachmentPathName = "C:\somefile.jpg"
    .MsgNoteText = "Body of Msg"
    .SessionID = frmMain.MAPISession1.SessionID
    .Send
End With

Didnt work :(

I'm using this code:

On Error GoTo TrataErro

'Inicializa uma seção MAPI
mpSession.UserName = "budd"
mpSession.Password = "budd"
mpSession.DownLoadMail = False
mpSession.LogonUI = False
mpSession.SignOn
mpMessage.SessionID = mpSession.SessionID
'Prepara e envia a mensagem
mpMessage.Compose
mpMessage.MsgIndex = -1
mpMessage.RecipAddress = "ssrosa@uai.com.br"
mpMessage.RecipDisplayName = "Sr. Papai"
mpMessage.MsgSubject = "Teste de Email"
mpMessage.MsgNoteText = Text1.Text
'Inclui o anexo
'mpMessage.AttachmentType = mapData
mpMessage.AttachmentName = "foto"
mpMessage.AttachmentPathName = "c:\foto1.jpg"
mpMessage.AttachmentPosition = Len(mpMessage.MsgNoteText)
mpMessage.Send
'Termina a seção
mpSession.SignOff
Exit Sub

TrataErro:
    MsgBox Error$, vbCritical, "Critical Error: " & Str(Err)
    End

Do you have to use MAPI or could you use a SMTP mailer?
