ASCI attachment lost when sending mail by MAPI or CDO

ASCI attachment lost when sending mail by MAPI or CDO

In some cases mails send by a VB application using CDO or MAPI the ASCI attachment is lost or corrupt.
The thing is that the sender can see the mail in his sent items with the attachment but the recipient receives the mail without the attachment, or the ASCI file can't be used anymore.

In some cases this is because the winmail.dat file is send along with the message.

This is the Exchange client adding Rich text information after the ASCI file.

This can be prevented.

For more info seen

Exchange administrator can do this.

Go to Exchange System Manager. Open the Global settings container and select Internet Message Formats.

In the right pane click new domain.

Fill in the required fields. As the example below. Replace test and test.com with the appropriate domain where you want to send RTF files to.








If the value is set to Never, RTF information is never sent.
If the value is set to Always, RTF information is always sent, regardless of the recipient properties.

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually goes
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.
