Top Forums UNIX for Dummies Questions & Answers How do I send a file as an attachment (gzip file) on a Unix system Post 23989 by lacca on Wednesday 3rd of July 2002 12:13:36 PM
Old 07-03-2002
I'm trying to send a mail from unix with a attach gzip file with the follow parameters:

Content-Type: application/x-gzip; name="xpto.txt.gz"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: x-gzip
Content-Disposition: inline;filename="xpto.txt.gz"
MIME-Version: 1.0

When I receive the mail in outlook and I try to decompress the file with winzip, give an error telling the file is corrupt.

What is wrong with these parameters ?

Best regards.
