MAPI, plain text report instead of attachment

Post by zbeleh »

hello,

i've seen that MAPI isn't the most suggested method around here, but here goes:
is there a way to have the bug report as plain text inside the mail body, as opposed to attachment?

and if not, is this maybe possible with SMTP? (so far, SMTP is completely failing with all my attempts)

Thanks!

You can modify the custom string "send - mail body" from "please find the bug report attached" to "%bugReport%". See here:

http://help.madshi.net/madExceptSettings10.htm

Please note that madExcept comes with a bug report viewer tool. If you allow madExcept to attach bug reports to your email, and if you use the "*.mbr" file extension, you can then simply double click the email attachments to open them in the bug report viewer tool. This won't work if you paste the full bug report text into the email body instead. But you decide, of course.
