Sending Multiple Attachments Via Outlook / Powerbuilder

Posted on 2004-08-27

Hi All,

I have succeeded in getting Powerbuilder to send an attachment but I would like to be able to send more than one attachment and am hoping to get an example of how it is done.

Here is my current code:

mailSession mSes

mailReturnCode mRet
mailMessage mMsg
mailFileDescription mAttach

mMsg.Recipient[1].name = ''
mMsg.Recipient[1].RecipientType = mailTo!
mMsg.Recipient[2].name = ''
mMsg.Recipient[2].RecipientType      = mailCC!

mAttach.Filename = Apollo.doc'
mAttach.Pathname = 'T:\Apollo.doc'
mAttach.FileType = mailAttach!
//mAttach.Position = 1

mMsg.Subject = 'Test Message'
mMsg.NoteText = 'This is the body of mail ~nAuto Generated E-mail by the system'

// Create a mail session
mSes = CREATE mailSession
// Log on to the session
//mRet = mSes.mailLogon(mailNewSession!)

mRet = mSes.mailLogon()
IF mRet <> mailReturnSuccess! THEN
     MessageBox("Mail", 'Logon failed.')

mMsg.AttachmentFile[1] = mAttach
IF mRet <> mailReturnSuccess! THEN
     MessageBox("Mail", 'Attachment failed.')

mRet = mSes.mailAddress(mMsg)
IF mRet <> mailReturnSuccess! THEN
     MessageBox("Mail", 'Addressing failed.')

// Send the mail
mRet = mSes.mailSend(mMsg)
IF mRet <> mailReturnSuccess! THEN
     MessageBox("Mail", 'Sending mail failed.')
        MessageBox("Mail", String(mRet))

string mailreturnstring
        mailreturnstring = MailErrorToString(mRet)
        MessageBox("Email Result", "Email ReturnCode = " + mailreturnstring)


Thank you,

//Try this eg:
mailsession lms_sess
mailmessage lm_mess
mailrecipient lm_recipient
mailFileDescription lmf_file
mailreturncode lmc_rc

lmf_file.FileType = mailAttach!
lmf_file.FileName = "212.txt"
lmf_file.PathName = "c:\" + "212.txt"

lm_mess.NoteText = "this my report."
lm_mess.Subject = "report "
lmf_file.Position = 1
lm_mess.Attachmentfile[1] = lmf_file

lmf_file.FileType = mailAttach!
lmf_file.FileName = "jsp.txt"
lmf_file.PathName = "c:\" + "jsp.txt"
lmf_file.Position = 2
lm_mess.Attachmentfile[2] = lmf_file

lm_recipient.Address = ""
lm_recipient.Name = "My Name"
lm_recipient.RecipientType = mailTo!
lm_mess.Recipient[1] = lm_recipient

lms_sess = create mailsession
lmc_rc = lms_sess.mailLogon()
lmc_rc = lms_sess.mailSend(lm_mess)
IF lmc_rc <> mailReturnSuccess! THEN
        MessageBox("Error", "Error on Send")

lmc_rc = lms_sess.mailLogoff()
DESTROY lms_sess
