I'm using the SecureMail sample project to test the PGP MIME encryption,

In there I encrypt a message with some attachments, some of them are hidden images used in the signature.
The resulting encrypted eml file is smaller than the original one.

When I try to decrypt the file using the same sample project I get the following error after i'm asked for the passphrase

Failed to assemble a message.
ElMime error code: 8
Message: "Cannot access a closed Stream."

If I manually decrypt the encrypted.asc file included in the encrypted mail file and save it as a .eml file I can see the original message, and the attachment is shown but it is only a few bytes in size. The strange thing is that the hidden attachments (the images included in the signature) are displayed correctly.

Is this an error of my original mail file (I'm attaching it) or is the sample missing something or is there an error on your library?

Thanks for your help


PD: I couldn't upload the original .eml file

Please post the relevant code and data (the code used to assemble the message as well as the assembled message) to the HelpDesk, our developers will check it. So far, based on your description, it's hard to say what's going on there.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
