JMail V4 looks pretty good, but the $145 price tag is kind of putting me off. >From reading through the examples there, it looks like its handling the attachments itself, and then saving them to whatever directory you specify right? In that case, it wouldn't be necessary to use the ADO Stream object? And to answer your question, yes its a binary file that I am planning on attaching. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of Ken Schaefer Sent: Wednesday, February 26, 2003 9:44 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] Is AspPop3 the way to go? Any POP3 component (Dimac's JMail v4 does the same thing) will handle the extraction of the mail headers (which can usually be returned as a collection, or a string), and the separation of each part of a multi-part message. If the attachment is binary, you'll need to use the ADO Stream object to save the data to the file system (as the File System Object is really only designed for text). To insert the header information into the database you'd just use an SQL statement and the ADO Connection object.

Will that be able to handle everything I want : it to, or will it just check the mailbox and return the header / attachment : information to me, and then from there I'll need some other components to : handle everything from there? : : Thanks! : : Chris -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
