Say I have created an EML file by using OutLook. An EML file that contains an attachment.

I have opened this file by using the MimeMessage class. This class provides me with useful methods, for getting the fiedls, from, to, recipients, content, etc.
But there's no method for getting the attachment. How do I get it?

Do a search in Other JSE / JEE API's; I've posted a recursive piece of code to investigate the contents of an email there before. You would find at least http://www.coderanch.com/t/449220/Other-JSE-JEE-APIs/java/Getting-Multiple-Attachments-from-MIMEMessage and http://www.coderanch.com/t/454945/Other-JSE-JEE-APIs/java/Java-Mail-Message-getContent-t. The previous one is more extensive; the file is returned as an InputStream.

Oh, and moving to that forum, as that's where we discuss JavaMail problems.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
