>I have c# application that reads email, i read xml and pdf file when i have no Embedded attachments. When i tried to read pdf from Embedded attachement, the code only reads .bmp, jpg files. My code

string strFiltro = String.Format("SINCE {0}-{1}-{2} BEFORE {3}-{4}-{5} {6} ",
                                       (this.MensajesNoLeidos == true ? "UNSEEN" : "ALL"));

            IEnumerable<Message> mensajesFiltrados = folder.Search(strFiltro/*MessageFetchMode.Full,10*/);
mensajesFiltrados = mensajesFiltrados.Where(x => x.Attachments.Count() > 0 || x.EmbeddedResources.Count() > 0);

      foreach (Message message in mensajesFiltrados)
              if (message.Attachments.Count() > 0)
                    ArchivosAdjuntosFiltrados = message.Attachments.Where(x => x.ContentType.Name.ToLower().Contains(".pdf") ||                                                      x.ContentType.Name.ToLower().Contains(".xml"));
                    resultado[0] = resultado[0] + ArchivosAdjuntosFiltrados.Count();
                  if (message.EmbeddedResources.Count() > 0)
//never get Embedded pdf or xml files ArchivosAdjuntosFiltrados = message.EmbeddedResources.Where(x => x.ContentType.Name.Contains(".pdf") || x.ContentType.Name.Contains(".xml"));


       foreach (Attachment atachemtn in ArchivosAdjuntosFiltrados)
                    strNombreArchivo = atachemtn.FileName;
String attachData = atachemtn.GetTextData().Replace('-', '+'); attachData = attachData.Replace('_', '/');

                if (intPosicion > 0)
                        attachData = attachData.Substring(0, attachData.Length - 31);

                    if (strNombreArchivo != String.Empty)
                        if (File.Exists(Path.Combine(strRutaDescargas, atachemtn.FileName)) == true)
                            if (pBlnSobreescribirArchivos == true)
                                byte[] data = Convert.FromBase64String(attachData);
                                File.WriteAllBytes(Path.Combine(this.strRutaDescargas, strNombreArchivo), data);

Any help will be appreciated..

So? Don't use Embedded for pdf's.

is this your own code ?
KlingCan 19-May-21 10:17am
Yes is my own code
BillWoodruff 19-May-21 10:25am
you need to set break-points and single-step through your code: i suggest running it on a test case where a message has one .pdf attachment.

as you hit each break-point, examine the state of variables and note where values seem in error.

please explain in more detail: "read pdf from Embedded attachement" ... what does "read" mean ?
