I'm trying to send attachments with emails using Javamail. Following is the code through which I'm trying to achieve that. It works as expected on a JRE1.6 environment. But on JRE1.5, the content of the file gets added to the mail body as text

Any pointers on the observed difference in behavior would be highly appreciated!





The email in case of JRE1.5 is as follows
