    Hi,

    Transport Protocol

    — You use IMAP4 (Internet Message Access Protocol) to retrieve e-mails from a

    folder of an e-mail server.

    — You use POP3 (Post Office Protocol Version 3) to retrieve e-mails from an email

    server.

    Message Protocol

    — XIALL

    In this mode, the content of the RFC822 e-mail matches the content of the XI

    message. The XI message is a multipart MIME message with a SOAP envelope as its

    first part. See also:Messages, under XI Message Protocol.

    — XIPAYLOAD

    In this mode, the content of the e-mail is put in the payload of the XI message. If

    you do not set the Use Mail Package indicator, the information about the sender

    (From), receiver (To), and subject of the e-mail is lost.

    Receiver Side.

    Transport Protocol

    — SMTP

    You use SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) to transfer e-mails to an e-mail server.

    — IMAP4

    You use IMAP4 (Internet Message Access Protocol) to put e-mails in a folder of an email

    server.

    Message Protocol

    — XIALL

    In this mode, all information of the XI message is put in the message text of the email.

    The content of the XI message is the same as the content of the RFC822 mail

    message.

    — XIPAYLOAD

    In this mode, the payload of the XI message is used to create the mail message. If

    the payload is in mail package format, the header information is also used for the email.

    If mail package format is not used, the header information is obtained from the

    adapter configuration described below.

    hi reddy,

    if you use XIPAYLOAD with user package then your content wont be sent as attachement.

    if you use XIALL you are expecting adapter to send your content(BODY) of the mail as attachement

    you can also enhance your adpter by using message transformation bean with module key as content dispostion

    with this your content will be send as body text instead of attachement.
