The GetHtmlAndSaveRelatedFiles() method appears to create a folder within the Parser.WorkingFolder path, which is excellent as it ensures all email files are isolated.

Is it possible to save all attachments in a MailMessage to the same directory?

Hi,

Sure:

msg.Attachments.SaveAll(msg.Parser.WorkingFolder);

Regards,
Alex

Thanks Alex, but it's doing what I would have expected. I'll try to explain what I'm trying to do.

First, I set msg.Parser.WorkingFolder to a directory, eg. c:\jtsr\temp\email

Then I call msg.GetHtmlAndSaveRelatedFiles(msg.Parser.WorkingFolder, VirtualMappingType.Static, MessageFolderBehavior.CreateAndDelete)

This method call creates an email specific folder, c:\jtsr\temp\email\A292F1..., and saves the content of the email (signature icons, inline images) in that folder.

However, the msg.Attachments.SaveAll(msg.Parser.WorkingFolder) call places the email attachments in c:\jtsr\temp\email, not in c:\jtsr\temp\email\A292F1...

I'd like all content and attachments for a single email to be contained in their own folder. I realise I can create a folder using Directory.Create() and manage it all manually, however I was hoping the library would manage this for me :)

It's now working beautifully with MessageParserConfig.GetMessageFolder()

While I'm at it, is there a way of saving only actual attachments rather than all images that appear in the EML file?

If I use the Attachments.SaveAll method, it returns all the signature icons as well. Is there a way to only return attachments that were attached to the email?

By setting ignoreInlineAttachments=true when calling SaveAll(folderName, ignoreInlineAttachments) method.

I tried this, however it is returning all attachments as inline for some reason. Iíve tried it in multiple eml files and all attachments are being treated the same.
