[thelist] Periods stripped in CDONTS email.

Hi folks,

I am sending an html e-Newsletter by putting the html in a few variables and then sending using ASP/CDONTS.  I've sent 4 newsletters the last few months and every time, some of the images are broken because when the email is sent, the period between the name and extension is missing!  Each email has different files that are broken and images that worked fine in one newsletter may not in the next.  For example, "spacer.gif" becomes "spacergif".  Its just plain wierd.  The only thing I can count on is that the periods are missing in the same spot for a particular newsletter. (each time it is sent out, the same images get stripped) So I get around it by putting in a double period, and when the original gets stripped, the second is there to make the image work.  Crappy work around. I can't find a pattern to the stripping of periods.  Anybody run into this?  Any clue?  I can supply code used to send, the variable html sent if needed.

Thanks mucho,

Adam 'bread_man' Slesinger
