IDoc to Mail (with attachment) scenario


I have a simple IDoc to Mail scenario. The payload is send as mail attachment.

The IDoc is mapped to a structure representing the attachment-file format.

The <b>mail adapter</b> is set up as follows:

Transport-Protocol: SMPT

Message-Protocol: XIALL

<i>Use Adapter-Specific Message Attributes</i> and <i>Variable Transport Binding</i> are checked.

I also use Modul <i>StrictXml2PlainBean</i> to convert the Payload into FlatFile-Format.

And I use the Modul <i>MessageTransformBean</i> to set up the Payload as attachment and to set up the name of the attachment. I use these parameters:

Transform.ContentDisposition = attachment;filename=test.txt
Transform.ContentType        = text/plain

The result is an Email with two files as attachment.

The first file contains the payload in FlatFile-Format as expected, but there is also a second file (XML-Format) with information about the message.


1. How can I get rid of the XML-File? I dont need it and it doesn't help the receiver of the Email, its just confusing.

2. How can I set up a dynamic name for the attachment from the paylaod ?

Thanks for your help.
