Pop3 with Attachments

Post by mh »

Hi,

I am a Neobooker that is getting introduced to NewLisp through HPW's Newlisp plugin.

I have a real newbie question.

I see that Newlisp has pop3 support. I was wondering does this functionality extend to the processing of e-mail attachments.

Also looking for anybody's experiences with the pop3 functionality and any limitations it might have.

Thanks
MH

There is no email attachement processing included in pop3.lsp, but the attachements are saved in their raw, encoded form.

PLease excuse my Newbie question but any help would be appreciated.

Are the raw e-mails attachments saved in a seperate file and what are the options for decoding it.

Being a Neobooker I'm looking into using HPW's mime decoder in his utility.dll as a possibility for decoding it.

Thanks for any input

The attachement is stored at the end of the email in the same file. I am not too familiar with the different encoding options of email attachements all of these things are specified in some RFCs : http://www.ietf.org/rfc.html and RFC-1341 at: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1341.txt?number=1341 are a good start to find out.
