Does anyone have example code for an email client (send & receive - with attachments) that will compile in Delphi 5 with Indy 9?  The only example I can find right now purports to be Indy9/10 and D7 and I get loads of errors and unknown properties when I try to bring it up in D5/Indy9.  This is urgent, so I'll give 500 points to anyone who can point me to a project download that will compile without hastle in D5/I9  (must handle attachments)

here's a list of errors I get with the indy 9 demo above in my basic delphi 5, indy 9 build
and notes on how I fixed them

Firstly, remove teh "readonly" attribute from the Main.pas file

"can not find MailDemo.res. Recreated" (ignore, this is fine)

"pnlAttachments.DesignSize" (ignore)
"Msg.DeleteTempFiles" (ignore)

replace
"IncludeTrailingPathDelimiter"
with
"IncludeTrailingbackslash"

replace
   "if not DirectoryExists(FAttachPath) then ForceDirectories(FAttachPath);"
with
   "ForceDirectories(FAttachPath);"
and add 'FileCtrl' to the uses clause at the top of the unit

hth, Loki

also make sure you open up the "setup.pas" file in delphi and ignore the "DesignSize" error there.
