Hi We use Chilkat in our software solution and there is an issue when connecting to an exchange server via EWS When an email comes in that has attachments (visible on exchange via OWA) the attachments are not displaying in the product and i wondered if this is due to the default content type in exchange being set to mimehtml as opposed to mimehtmltext? is there a known issue with certain mail formats?

Are you aware that the Chilkat mail class divides the attachments up into several categories depending on their type and/or usage?

The methods available are:

  • GetAttachment (the easiest to understand)
  • GetAttachedMessage (message/rfc822 attachments)
  • GetRelatedData (attachments used inline, typically stylesheets or images used in html mail bodies)
  • GetAlternativeBody (probably not your use case, but could also be considered somewhat of an attachment, since it is also just another mime part)

Maybe your missing attachment is one of these?
