MAIL API and record terminations?

» close window

The Question is:

When I use MAIL$SEND_ADD_BODYPART in sending via callable mail, MAIL perversely
 adds a terminator to the end of each record. When I'm copying something sent
 to my terminal's BROADCASTMBX to this mail API, this causes undesirable breaks
 in the received tex
t. Is there any hope?

The Answer is :

  Without information on the application -- and particularly without a
  small source code reproducer -- a specific answer is impossible.
  The OpenVMS Wizard is unfamiliar with the particular problem cited,
  and has regularly used the OpenVMS MAIL API to send email messages.
  All record-oriented operations -- adding lines of text to an outgoing
  mail message being one example -- do (of course) tend to involve record
  Examples of using callable mail are available from various sources.
