Hi Andy,

You could try using the Indy project. Indy is a socket library which implements many common-used internet protocols. If you're planning to look into Indy, make sure you grab the FCL build, which stands for a stand alone build for the .NET framework, as Indy is a cross-platform project, running on Windows and Linux natively (FreeBSD works partially), and .NET for Windows (using P/Invokes), and .NET natively (no P/Invokes, runs on mono).

  Subject: [Mono-dev] System.Net.Mail question

  I've been trying to send a simple email messge from a little Mono program on Linux and everytime I get the mail, the body is send as a .dat attachment.  This email is a forwading of the email generated by the following code:


              MailAddress from = new MailAddress("test at fnfr.com", "Test");

              MailMessage msg = new MailMessage(from, new MailAddress("awaddell at fnfr.com"));

              msg.Subject = "subject";

              msg.Body = "this is the body";


              SmtpClient mailClient = new SmtpClient("localhost", 25);



  Does anybody know what's cause it to be an attachment vs. a clean simple mail message.  The same code compiled and running on .NET (albeit with a different smtp server) produces the expected result (i.e. no attachment).  I don't know if it's something to do with the smtp server running on my Linux box or something MS Outlook is doing.


  Sorry if this is not an appropriate question for this group, but it could be related to the Mono implementation of System.Net.Mail.
