Subject RE: jars required to send attachment via <mail> task
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2004 16:53:03 GMT

	I already used encoding="mime" with mail.jar & activation.jar in $ANT_HOME/lib, the mail
was sent with the file attached, but the file was not properly encoded (it is shown as a text
file, instead a jar / zip file; therefore it is not usable). When using encoding="plain" just
use the text representation of the zip file as body mail (as if you use the output produced
by use the [type] command).

	I am using Java Activation Framework 1.0.1 & Java Mail 1.2 (not pretty sure if this has
something related). I'll use the newest versions of these two jar files and try again.

you need encoding="mime"
and mail.jar, activation.jar

or encoding="plain" in order not to use the mail.jar, but ant's own 
sendmail implementation.
