Subject: problem sending email, body in Rich Text Format / Plain Text



Hi,

I have James set up. I have a problem when sending an email using Microsoft
Outlook 2000 Plain Text or Rich Text to the James with an attachment but
with no message in the body.

I am choosing the format of the mail in the Outlook by going to Tools >>
Options >> Mail Format >> 'Choose a format for outgoing mail ...'  and
choosing the option as 2 or 3 from the available as listed below 
1. HTML
2. Microsoft Outlook Rich Text
3. Plain Text

When I send an email to the James Server to categorize, choosing HTML (with
or without a message in the body) it works fine. If I send an email choosing
either Plain Text or Rich Text with some message in the body it works fine.
But If no message in the body (sending just an attachment) it fails throwing
an exception (see below).

For your information, I tried to check what it is doing. For the email sent
in HTML (successful case),

..........

But when I did the same for the non-working case, it skips part of it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
