Hi,

I try to send a mulitpart email, which should have a body and two 
attached files: a html file and a zip file. My code looks like this:



msg=MIMEMultipart()
msg['From']=sender
msg['To']='; '.join(recipients)
msg['Subject']=subject
msg.epilogue=''

html=file(reportFile,'rb').read()
report=MIMEText(html,'html')
report.add_header('Content-Disposition','attachment',filename=reportFile)
msg.attach(report)

data=file(diffFile,'rb').read()
diff=MIMEBase('application','zip')
diff.set_payload(data)
encode_base64(diff)
diff.add_header('Content-Disposition','attachment',filename=diffFile)
msg.attach(diff)

text=MIMEText("the body text",'plain')
msg.attach(text)

smtp=smtplib.SMTP('pop_server')
smtp.set_debuglevel(0)
smtp.sendmail(sender,recipients,msg.as_string())
smtp.quit()



The body of the mail is ok and the zip archive is also valid, but the 
end of the html is cut of most of the time.

Any hints what I'm doing wrong?

regards,
Achim
