Sending attachments in email

Greetings all,

Apologies if this is more SapConnect than Workflow-related, but I figured folks here are pretty knowledgeable

I have inherited a setup which is moving from a Lotus Notes connector to a standard SMTP internet mail server setup. The fun part is a certain workflow which sent a SOFM attachment as an attachment via Notes/Domino, which dutifully arrived at a .txt attachment with the original contents.

Switch to a standard SMTP-compliant server and all I get is an attachment which contains a persistent object reference:

<SID><client> SOFM FOLnn000000000004EXTnn000000000nnn <OBJECT>

The attachment filename itself is:

Q99_999 SOFM FOL99000000000099EXT99000000000999 OBJECT.OBJ

So it is clearly referring to the object, but where it was previously actually attaching the SOFM document itself it is now attaching the object reference.

My question: Where is this setting stored? I've gone through the varios SCOT settings and have tried to adjust settings for object/document type (started getting errors along the lines of 'conversion type not supported' or similar).

Any input appreciated.

Muchos grazias,
