Attachments within Attachments

It appears that if an email is received with a second email attached which contains attachments there is no way to get a reference to these attachments. Is it possible to recursively go through attachments checking if they are emails and then checking for attachemnts? The following code (written in C#) check for .doc attachments: for(int a=1;a<=item.Attachments.Count ;a++) { if(item.Attachments.Item(a).FileName.EndsWith(".doc")) { // Document Attached } }

Applescript to prevent not attaching the attachment
2 replies , 8/23/2006, 12:45:25 PM
I've done it again. Sent an email promising an attachment... but without the attachment. I wonder if anyone would like to have a go an Apple Script that might check for an attachment; look for the word 'attachment' in the body of the email and if it finds it and there's no attachment, on sending, throw up a warning message saying "There's no attachment with this email, is this what you really want?" Needless to say, it's way beyond me. Many thanks

lost the ability to attach attachments

Hello. My friend has a problem on their Mac OSX 10.4.5 with Entourage 2004: He says: I have suddenly lost the ability to attach attachments. When I click the paper clip it freezes every time and nothing happens. I have to press escape to get back to the e-mail. attachments are suddenly impossible. Any ideas? - I know its not a lot to go on, but I thought I would ask here if anyone has a fix for it. Thanks Glenn

In Entourage X (latest version), you can place an attachment so that it lands in the Attachment field, or in the body of the email. When I create a 246k PDF, and place it in the Attach field, it arrives to the recipient exactly as it left: a 246k PDF. BUT�and this is so weird� when I place that same 246k PDF in the Body of the email, it arrives to the recipient as 146k JPG !!!! I've known about this for years, I don't even mind it (kind of handy to half the size of a PDF, which more people have trouble opening anyway) but I'm now wanting to know if this is some feature that was built specifically into E'rage, or a glitch, or what. Anyone know? Any intentional advantage/disadvantage over either method?

Often we will stuff files to send as an attachment. The stuffed file on the desktop may be under 10 mg. We we add the attachment to Entourage, the file size increases to 12 mg. I cannot find a reason this would happen. Does anyone know? We are using Drop Stuff 8.0.2 Tiger 10.4.2 Entourage 11.1.0 (040913)

Can't send attachments
2 replies , 1/2/2005, 7:17:25 AM
Does anyone know why the heck I cannot send attachments bigger than about 300k from Entourage, especially jpg photos. Entourage gives me an error message "An unknown error occurred" 4362 and when I try it again, the same thing with 4363. I can open Apple Mail and send the same attachments without any problem, but this is a MAJOR hassle. I switched to Entourage mainly because of the notification when you're in other programs, the flagging by date and time, etc., and the smaller font for mailboxes, so more of them show at the same time and I DON'T want to switch back at this stage.

word attachments in email
0 replies , 7/13/2005, 1:51:02 PM
I am adding a word attachment to an email message. When I open the attachment in outlook the text is overlapping and there is missing lines, the attachment is not looking the way as if I were to open the same attachment in my documents. If I open the attachment while in outlook the way I can fix the messed up looking attachment is to click view and then click print layout. I don't want to have to tell everyone that they need to do this to open the attachment. Any suggestions.
