I'm still mucking with the global.asa file on my server, and now have the
problem that file attachments are not being saved to the server.
>From what I understand Functions are OK in global.asa, as long as they
aren't within a sub, so the following function should be ok:
Function getAttachments()
  Set Attachments = msg.Attachments
   separator = ", "
  For i = 0 To Attachments.Count - 1
    If i = Attachments.Count - 1 Then
      separator = ""
    End If
  Set at = Attachments(i)
  at.SaveToFile( "c:\hshome\photokyo\blogzilla.jp\attachments\" & addedthing
& at.Name )
  getAttachments = getAttachments & "<a href=""/attachments/" &_
  at.Name &""">" & at.Name & "(" & at.Size & " bytes)" &_
  "</a>" & separator
End Function
What the whole script does is checks my email, and if there is a message
it'll make some entries in the DB, and then save the attachment to the
This works if I run it in a regular .asp page, but for some reason the .asa
doesn't like it. Strange thing is I don't get any error message at all. It
just goes through the script and finishes with no complaints, writes the
filename of the attachment to the DB, but the file is not saved... cant
figure this one out.
Please help!
