How to send multiple email attachments from AIX?
Posted on 2004-10-21
Does anybody know of a way to send multiple attachments within a single email (for AIX).
We currently use the following programs for sending emails:
* "sendmail": Will send an email, but with no attachments at all.
* "mpack": Will send an email with only one attachment.
The one that I am currently experimenting with:
* "metasend": Which will send multiple attachments, but changes the filename to always have a .txt extension. I have managed to change the file description (before the extension) but the file always has a .txt at the end (eg FILENAME.CSV.txt). I am setting the MIME type as text/plain to avoid any data formatting/conversion (any other ideas are much appreciated), which is why the .txt always appears at the end... very frustrating.
Does anybody know how to overcome the file naming issue with metasend, or does anybody know of any other (preferably easier to use) programs that can send multiple emails within an email, while maintaining the file format and filename & extension.
I have looked around on the net but have been unsuccessfull in locating anything that would be able to help.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
