[thelist] CDONTS for International E-mail

According to the Platform SDK...

"The setting of the MailFormat property determines the default value for the
EncodingMethod parameter in the AttachFile and AttachURL methods. However,
if you add an attachment encoded in base 64 format, the value of the
MailFormat property is automatically set to CdoMailFormatMime."

I don't quite understand this, but it looks as though you can only include a
mime attribute for attachments.  There's also something called MessageFormat
whch works in the same way as MailFormat.

I can't see anything that specifically lets you define the MIME type for
text mails. Have you thought about tweaking the default mime type in
Exchange server?
