Dear all,

I'm developing an application to run on a BlackBerry device that uses the email attachments.

When I try to retrieve the attachments of an email in the real device I see that the attachment:

- has as ContentType application/octet-stream

- is an UnsupportedAttachmentPart

I have tried to add to the name of our attachments the prefix x-rimdevice, but I obtain always an UnsupportedAttachmentPart

Is it possible to retrieve the stream of bytes from the UnsupportedAttachmentPart class?

I have tried with the methods getInputStream() but it returns null

I have seen on the javadoc that the method getContents return an UnknownMimePartModel class, but I have not found information on this class.

Could somebody help me?

Thank you very much

working with attachments on a BB = serious pain in the ***
This UnknownMimePartModel class isn't in any of the javadocs, so it either doesn't exist or is a protected inner class.
