Hi,

I'm trying Synapse to send emails with attachments and I use a function like this :

=========
var part: TMimePart;
   MM : TMimeMess;
   data:tstringlist;
   tmp: TMemoryStream;
=========
 data:=TStringList.Create;
 data.Add('This is a text');
 mm:=TMIMEMess.Create;
 mm.header.from:='me@email.com';
 mm.header.ToList.add('me@email.com');
 mm.header.subject:='A test';
 Part := mm.AddPartMultipart('Mixed', nil);
 mm.AddPartText(data, Part);
 tmp := TMemoryStream.Create;
 try
   tmp.LoadFromFile('C:\attachment.zip');
   mm.AddPartBinary(tmp, 'attachment.zip',part);
 finally
   tmp.Free;
 end;
 mm.EncodeMessage;
 SendToEx('me@email.com','me@email.com', 'Hey','smtp.email.com', MM.Lines, '','');
 MM.Free;
=========

The email is received, but looks like below:
=========
From: me@email.com
To: me@email.com
Subject: A test

Why don't you try indy? It's simpler to use. These components do not seem to be able to send attachements other way than inline ones.

I want to keep my app as small as possible (no forms etc.).
I've heard good things about Synapse, are you sure isn't working with attachments?

Seems your email CLIENT is the culprit here as it *should* handle the MultiPart/Mixed file
just fine.

If that is what is showing in your email client, that is.

Thanks Eddie, but I don't think it's my email client fault. I've tried webmails like Yahoo and Safe-mail.net, it happened the same thing :(

It is not the email client.... The same result is shown with Outlook Express and directly in the webpage of the email server. It is just that it attaches the "attachement" in-line, that's what happens. Instead of attaching the file, it encrypts it and inserts the encryptet text intto the body.
  I read the source of the synapse and I did not see anything related to attaching files. I guess they stopped before solving this matter.

Thanks, it's fixed now, I should have been using another function, SendToRaw.
