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
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.
