Subject [jira] Created: (EMAIL-67) Create e-mail attachment using an OutputStream

Create e-mail attachment using an OutputStream
----------------------------------------------

                 Key: EMAIL-67
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/EMAIL-67
             Project: Commons Email
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Charl Gerber
            Priority: Minor


I'm using POI to create .xls files in memory that I want to send as e-mail attachments. I
now have to first save the created POI workbooks, then attach the files to the e-mail and
then have a mechanism to clean up the temporary files after the mail was sent. The POI HSSFWorkbook
has a method:

write(java.io.OutputStream stream) 

If this operation could write directly into the e-mail attachment, it would increase performance
and require a lot less overhead to manage the temporary files.

I am sure there are plenty other examples of attachments being created as files in memory
that could be sent directly without having to create it as an actual file first.
