default encoding for wodSMTP.createSimpleAttachmen (wodSmtp)

general Question:

If i use the create...Attachment() methods, are you generally
using base64 encoding or is it depending on what kind of file
i am attaching? (perhaps based on fileextension?)

Example: Is encoding changing to QuotedPrintable when attaching
an RTF-File instead of a GIF-File (-> base64) ?

Background: I am saving the Message as EML-File as a kind of
Mail-archive. My APP should be able to save/preview the attached
File of such an EML-File. base64-decoding is easy, but the other
encoding-schemes must be programmed if wodSMTP.create... is not
always using base64 as default.

Thanks alot and
best regards

BASE64 is used. Component doesn't review the contents of attached file, it assumes that attachment isn't readable - otherwise it would be part of the message.

Well, that's a good answer.

This way i can spare quite a lot of code.

VisualFoxpro decoding base64 is a one-call-function
[code]lcMydecodedContent = STRCONV(lcMyBase64Text,14)[/code]
That's it...

Thanks alot,
This saves me a lot of work..

Best regards
