Can Exchange drop attachment names?
Exchange 5.5, SP4; CDO 1.2.1
I have CDO-created messages that are not behaving correctly. The message has
a file attachment. In the "Sent Items" folder--and in messages I send to an
account on the Exchange server--the attachment icon appears in the message,
and file name appears normally.
Received at the other end, however, it looks like this (a UNIX server
running SendMail 8.x):
Content - Type: application/octet-stream;
Content - Transfer - Encoding: base64
Content - Disposition: attachment;
Content - Description: <the file name is here>
QUESTION: Are there any Exchange settings that could cause this behavior?
The SA at the other end says that manually prepared messages (using OE)
received from other organizations behave properly (filename="<name>")
**AND** they don't include the "Content-Description" line. If I use the
Exchange client and manually prepare a message, it arrives correctly, too
I sought the counsel of VB NG's. The responder posted code he had used to
successfully transmit attachments. While the changes suggested didn't, IMHO,
make a functional difference, I went ahead and coded them on the chance I
was missing something really subtle.
But I still having the same result.
It's driving me nutty. Any ideas?
(BTW, this is sent across a VPN in a hub-and-spoke architecture, so I don't
have any other--Exchange--servers I can test against.)

Situation resolved. Disregard, thanks.
