I am failed to solve this problem as I don't know how to get INFORMATION OF CLIENT'S LOCAL DRIVE AS CLIENT MAY USES DIFFERENT OPERATING SYSTEM.

Any information will be very helpful to me.

Send Email with HTTP file attachment - Workflow is sending garbage in attachment



I'm having an issue with a customized workflow when I send an email with an attachment. I am using the "send email with http file attachment" that I have downloaded from CodePlex. Unfortunately all attachments that come through are full of garbage. This includes .jpg, .pdf, and .txt. From what I can tell with the .txt file is that its contents has been replaced with what appears to be the html of the list page. Both the .jpg and .pdf fail to open complaining about corrupt documents. All documents can be opened fine from within sharepoint. 

Can anyone of you guide me in this regard, as rest of my  workflow logic is working fine but this attachment issue is ruining the end result.


Sending a File Using Email Helper in WebPages/Razor


Note: This is particularly with respect to Email Helper in WebPages/Razor. Please don't post links using System.Net.Mail object.

Following this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/9-adding-email-to-your-website

Under "Sending a File Using Email" section what exactly is the code trying to do.

1: The SendFile.cshtml does not have any option to select file.

2: ProcessFile.cshtml is running fine. I am getting the email but no attachement.

I tried changing fileAttachment input to type="file" but not file is being sent to my email. I just get the message send in body.

Question: How exactly this file attachment works using Email Helper in WebPages.

EWS save email attachment (ItemAttachment)

Hello, I'm using Exchange Webservices. I try to save an email attachment which is a email itself. It is not a FileAttachment, but an ItemAttachment. We are running Exchange 2007.

WCF MTOM Client calling Java Webservice - Issues with File attachment Content ID encoded in SOAP mes

Hello,I'm having difficulty calling a MTOM enabled Java based web service that accepts an file as input..NET appeats to be generating a SOAP message where the reference to the binary part of the message is an encoded url.For Example:  <inc:Include href="cid:http%3A%2F%2Ftempuri.org%2F1%2F634000265217257868" xmlns:inc="http://www.w3.org/2004/08/xop/include"/>In fact, the Content ID defined in the SOAP message, looks nothing like the actual Content ID of the actual message part.Content-ID: <http://tempuri.org/1/634000265217257868=2787915398744@soapui.org>The service is invoked and executed on the java webserver...but the data element appears to be null.I do not believe the java web server understands the reference in the SOAP message because it is encoded....Or...perhaps it's because the Content-ID attribute has extract stuff on it.I'm working with a custom MTOM encoder in WCF....is there a way to generate your own Content ID or tell .NET not to encode the url?My frustration with .NET has reached an all new level with this project...Any help would be greatly appreciated.Here the SOAP message that is being generated:<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:ns="http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/cmis/messaging/200901" xmlns:ns1="http://docs.oasis-open.org/ns/cmis/core/200901&q

I am looking for a means by which ASP.NET can create an Outlook MailItem and stream it to the client machine for the user to review prior to sending. I know that its possible to create files such as Word docs and Excel spreadsheets an then stream them, but I don't know how to do it with ASP.NET.

SharePoint 2010 Incoming Email cannot process email file attachment in email with less than sign < a


When sending an email which contains an email attachment such as "Hello <World>.msg" from Outlook to SharePoint 2010 email enabled list such as an "Announcements" list, no item is created in the list and the attached email and the orginal email are not saved.

The log file contains

Incoming email, when trying to view a eml file it only display the save and cancel buttons


I have a list which accepts incoming emails.  The original email is saved to this list as a eml file.  Why is it when I click on this file it asks me to save the file to my computer without the option to open?  I would like outlook express to open this email instead of downloading it.  I can download it and then double click the eml file which outlook express then opens.


SharePoint 2010 Incoming Email cannot process file attachment with zero size.


When sending email with attachments to SharePoint list, if one of the file attached to the email is of size 0, then none of the files will be saved and NO new item will be created in the list.

The SPEmailHandler's ProcessAttachment method should check the length of the "contentStream". If the length is 0, it should return immediately.

As you can see in the ProcessAttachment method none of the arguments are validated before they are used. This an example of poor quality code.

It should do at least

if (contentStream == null || contentStream.Length == 0) return;

if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(fileName) || item == null) return;


private static void ProcessAttachment(Stream contentStream,

Trying to launch a .exe file on my local computer from intranet site.


I have been told I can launch a local program on my PC from my intranet site but it has to be done with Active X or vbscript and not javascript.  I found the following little sample html code that will launch notepad.  However, I cannot figure out how to put this in a button, etc., within my aspx or code behind to execute it.  Does anybody have any idea how to do this?  I have a lot of javascript code I am launching urls with and I have even tried using that but again, I have been told that to do it client side it needs to be vbscript or something like this.  Any ideas?

Insert image into Infopath form and save to SharePoint as PDF file


I have an InfoPath web-enabled form in MOSS 2007, that is integrated with a K2 blackpoint process for an approval workflow.

Once the form (a Purchase Order request form) has been approved in the K2 workflow process, I switch the form view to a "print-friendly" view for the requestor to view from the browser.  However, now I need to go one step further with this scenario:

1) I need to somehow insert/embed an image with the scanned-in signature of the approver (likely stored in a SP doc library) at the signature line section of my form.  Also, what are the security requirements for storing such images, but not granting all users access to these (e.g. only services accounts that need to access this for embedding into the form, etc.)?

2) Then I need to convert this final "print-friendly" view of the form (with the signature image) to a PDF document so that I can store it in SharePoint (and email it to the requestor using K2's email event capabilities).

Can anyone help me with a solution to both of these requirement, or point me to some resources for this (even 3rd party components are open-game).
