The Question is:
We are using SMTP to send Email from VAX-VMS
to MS-windows it works well but if we try to
send an attached document and open the document
in windows as a TXT or Word documents the format of the document is lost
including line-feed and carriage return.
By the way we are using MIME to attached the documents.
Can you tell me what we are doing wrong.
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS sequential-file record format that most closely matches that
used on Microsoft Windows platforms is the stream format -- most OpenVMS
tools and utilities will properly process the various sequential record
formats, though the default sequential formats tend not to be compatible
with Microsoft platforms. See the SET FILE/ATTRIBUTE=RFM=STM command
and the CONVERT/FDL command, as these commands can be used to establish
or to produce sequential files of the appropriate stream format.
