MAIL, SMTP, MIME, and attachments? (take III)

» close window

The Question is:

We have recently applied v7.2 service pack 1 and Vax Mime update 2.  We would
 like to send emails with file attachments directly from our application system
 written in fortran 77.
We have figured out how to send mime attachments through email, however we
 cannot figure out how to generate the MIME encoded file from our application.
Is there any way to call the OpenVMS MIME utility from the command line to
 achieve this?

The Answer is :

  SPAWN would be one obvious (though inelegant) approach -- there is no
  MIME API available.
  The SFF (Send From File) mechanism may well be the most desireable
  mechanism here -- see topic 4492.
