ZipMail: NotesEmbeddedObject.ExtractFile()

With ZipMail installed, the ExtractFile() function no longer works - no file is created which is supposed to contain the attachment content.
Is there a workaround?

DId you check the Zipail documentation for developers.
You probably need to call zipmail instead of the normal extract.

I hope this helps !

Call zipmail on what content?
Is there any other way to get the attachment's content, besides NotesEmbeddedObject's ExtractFile()?
zimail has probably replaced the built in NotesEmbeddedObject's ExtractFile()?, with their own routine.

You need to know how to call that from a rogram or find an alternative soltion.

COntact Zipmail and ask them how to do the original Extract.

I hope this helps !

Hi GalinaYM,
Agree with sysExpert.. I'm guessing that zipMail has it's own extractfile function to prevent users from extracting and opening a non-approved file.   There's a variety of zipmail configurations, so, yes, you'd have to write to their support desk for assistance with this.

Yes, there is a parameter that has to be set to a certain value in the ZipMail configuration file on the client - that did the trick.
