Hi everyone,
I have created Multipart Message to send to different mail users. The problem is now that the recipient using Lotus Notes can't see the attachment, whereas Outlook has no problem. Here is my code snippet:

I would be very thankful if you could help me.
Regards, Ulrich

We talk about JavaMail in the EJB/Other J2EE forum, so I'm moving this thread to that forum. Please head over there to continue the discussion.

(Yes, I suppose JavaMail is a J2EE technology, isn't it? Funny I never think about it that way. Must be because I use it in non-J2EE contexts.)

Anyway to respond to the question: just a guess, but maybe Lotus Notes doesn't think HTML plus attachments makes sense. Try with plain text.

Hi Paul,
thank you very much for your help. I suppose you're right because when I compare the two messages, the one created by Java Mail, the other by Outlook, the second message contains a second body part containing the plain text version additionally to the first body part containing the html version. This message can be displayed with the attachments within Lotus Notes. So I will try this and post the result later.
Thanks & regards,
Ulrich
