I have a program in visual basic which will send email with attachment. The program can send email to external (internet) email or Internal Lotus Notes email with an attachment. however, I cannot send internal email to an exchange server with attachment. (there is a DEIVERY FAILURE email coming back to my email account and it said that the Message had "syntax that was not valid".

but I can send internal email to an exchange server without attachment. I think maybe the program of the syntex of the attached email highlighted below... Please help!!


    Dim OLESess As Object
    Dim OLEDB As Object
    Set OLESess = CreateObject("Notes.Notessession")
    Set OLEDB = OLESess.GetDatabase("", "")    

    On Error GoTo NotesError
    Const EMBED_ATTACHMENT = 1454
    ' Creates a new document/message.
    Dim Doc As Object
    Dim NItem As Object
    Set Doc = OLEDB.CreateDocument
       
    With Doc
        ' creates body of message and populates headers
        Set NItem = Doc.CREATERICHTEXTITEM("BODY")
        .Form = "Memo"
        .Subject = MySubject
        .SendTo = MySendTo
        .CopyTo = MyCopyTo  'MyCopyTo is an array of receiver
        .Body = MyBody
        .postdate = Date
        .SaveMessageOnSend = True
        .PostedDate = Now
               
        Call NItem.EMBEDOBJECT(1454, "", MyAttach, "Attachment")    <<<<------------------
        Doc.CREATERICHTEXTITEM ("Attachment")
       
        .Send False
    End With

I can't hold on.

I am giving the solution right away. I can't let got a 500 points question like that.

the solution is:
If you found the answer by now, then delete this question posting a request in community support.

or if you are generous in points, then accept this as answer.

But for your problem, I don't have solution. Thinking it is happening because of names format. Not sure.

This is just a guess: try to add the attachment as an attachment (not embedded object) to the body rich text item of your mail and then send it.
Notes/Domino will automatically convert it to a regular attachment for internet mail.

Hi jerrith,

The EmbedObject method is used for both attachments and OLE objects.  It is the correct way (only way) to attach files using the NotesDocument/NotesRichTextItem classes.

More likely, the address syntax was incorrect.  What was the value of mySendTo?  If you are using the Exchange connector with Directory Sync, then it should be just the person's name.  If using the connector w/o sync, then it is usually something like "user name@MSEXCHANGE"

If you are not using the Exchange connector at all, then you probably need to use internet addressing, as if it was an external user.

Cheers!

Yep, I know. It's the type that specifies if it's an attachment or ole object.
I see he put in the number in stead of the constant alias, didn't check if it was the correct number :-)
