Default How to get an email attachment?

Please Login to Remove!

I've been trying for days to get an email attachment.

My main problem is that the second part of my multipart, the attachment, is always of the type UnsupportedAttachment.

I retrieve the mail using a folderlistener.
on the message i use the following code:

Code:
Object c = message.getContent();
if (c instanceof Multipart) {
	Multipart m = (Multipart)c;				
	if (m.getCount()>0){
		BodyPart bp = m.getBodyPart(1);
		System.out.println("bp class: "+bp.getClass());
		if (bp instanceof UnsupportedAttachmentPart){
		 UnsupportedAttachmentPart s = (UnsupportedAttachmentPart) m.getBodyPart(1);
		 System.out.println("name: "+s.getName()+" size: "+s.getSize());
		}
	}				
}
as output i get:
Code:
bp class: class net.rim.blackberry.api.mail.UnsupportedAttachmentPart
name: ess.png size: 0
taking a look at UnsupportedAttachment that is not surprising as getSize() always returns 0.

Question is: How do i get an attachment then? Any way for my second bodypart not being of the UnsupportedAttachment-type?
I tested this on the real device, not only the simulator. Even attachments i can view are considered Unsupported in my code.

seems solved.

i had to add an attachmenthandler for the kind of attachment as well as prefixing the file with x-rimdevice. wow, good end of the week!

not so good.

SupportedAttachment.getContent().getClass() returns [B
byte[] b = SupportedAttachment.getContent();
b.length is 0...

SupportedAttachment.writeTo() does not work either
