Is it possible to set a custom message for non-MIME clients where the following text appears in a multi part mail message:
Quote
This is a message with multiple parts in MIME format.
?

Thank you for contacting us.

Its not possible using SecureBlackbox. You can manually write MIME header, then write "This is a message with multiple parts in MIME format." and multipart message body.

I'm not quite sure that I understand how you would go about to do what you just described. A sample in C# would be nice.

Here is a sample message from Wikipedia:
Code
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=frontier

This is a message with multiple parts in MIME format.

--frontier
Content-Type: text/plain

This is the body of the message.
--frontier
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

Ym9keSBvZiB0aGUgbWVzc2FnZS48L3A+CiAgPC9ib2R5Pgo8L2h0bWw+Cg=
--frontier--


The problem is that MIMEBlackbox doesn't allow to add a text before the 1st boundary (--frontier). You can create a message using MIMEBlackbox and then insert your text manually as its shown in the sample above.

BTW, its hard to find non-MIME clients nowadays.

I tried to load the sample message into an TElMessage object using the ParseMessage method, wich seemed to work fine. Then I saved it to a file using a FileStream as argument to AssembleMessage. When I exammine the file the body text from the sample is replaced with the text mentioned earlier. Maybee I have the wrong idea about how to
Quote
insert your text manually
.

Any ideas?

"insert your text manually" means that you should parse an output message manually without SecureBlackbox.

When it comes to CLR languages, everything in the world is possible via reflection. The non-MIME viewer warning is stored as a static constant in a SBMIME.__Global class. You can alter its value before assembling messages in the following way:
Code
            Assembly asm = Assembly.GetAssembly(typeof(SBMIME.TElMessage));
            Type[] types = null;
            try
            {
                types = asm.GetTypes();
            }
            catch (ReflectionTypeLoadException ex)
            {
                types = ex.Types;
            }
            for (int i = 0; i < types.Length; i++)
            {
                if (types[i].FullName == "SBMIME.__Global")
                {
                    FieldInfo fi = types[i].GetField("cCapMultiPart", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.Static);
                    if (fi != null)
                    {
                        fi.SetValue(null, Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("My custom warning for non-MIME browsers"));
                    }
                    break;
                }
            }

Would you consider to add a feature to the message/message part that makes it possible to set your own text that is not global in the application/app domain?
