I have little experience with javamail and would really appreciate any help you could offer on this error. I'm trying to send a pdf (in memory) as an attachment to an email.

So far I've got:



And this helper class:




When run, I'm getting the following exception:

SMTPMailSender |javax.mail.internet.ParseException
at java.lang.Throwable.<init>(Throwable.java)

Just before sending the message, the headers are:

Can anybody tell me what I've done wrong here?

I also noticed that the DataHandler has objectMimeType set to "multipart/mixed;
boundary="----=_Part_1_2073066384.1121471029718""

Can this be right? Is this the problem?

You have to write your implementation of DataSource so that it returns a new instance of the InputStream every time getInputStream() is called. You have to read it into a buffer in order to do this. Here's my implementation of InputStreamDataSource which I've tested (it works )

Brilliant. Buffering the inputstream worked for me as well. Thanks for your help. I've been beating my head against the monitor for quite a while on this one.

I am trying to implement something similar to this. Does this work for xls files and doc files or does it mess the format.
