Internet Mail Client Control FAQs/Objects/Message Object

How can I read a message from a file which has been written in MIME format by another program?


The .Read() and .Write() methods of the FileClient object allow you load and save files in a standard MIME compatible format.

Saving, and particularly, reading messages in MIME format on disk is not an efficient process. Developers should only use the methods of the FileClient Object where MIME format files are specifically required by interoperability requirements.

In situations where interoperability requirements to do not require MIME format files developers are encouraged to use the LoadFromFile() and SaveToFile() methods of the Message Object these methods use an optimized, but propriety, format to store the message data and will result in better performance.
