I am sending e-mails with actionmailer and I have the following code to send an e-mail with an attachment: @headers['Content-Type'] = "text/plain; charset=utf-8; format=flowed" @body["application_id"] = app_id unless (file.blank? || file.kind_of?(StringIO)) attachment :content_type => "multipart/mixed", :body => tempfile.read, :filename => tempfile.original_filename, :charset => "utf-8" end That works fine as long as I am reading the e-mails (with the attachments) on a windows operating system. Strangely enough it does not work on OS X. On Tiger for example this does not work. An image (jpg) file works but a pdf file will not be readable. (Strange characters only) I can read the e-mails on Mac but I cannot open the attachments. The server is a debian sarge. Any ideas? Thanks a lot.

Sounds kinda weird that this is platform related like that. Does it apply to all (or at least more than one) e-mail clients on OS X? On Jan 18, 3:32 pm, Chris H. <firstname.lastname@example.org>

I am not sure about that but at least it happened on every e-mail client it was tested. (So far on 2 Installations) Don't know which e-mail client those guys used - but I can get this information I think.
