Property Value

Type: String
A string containing the attachment's content type taken from Content-Type header, or an empty string if the content type is not set.
Some examples of attachment content types:
  • text/plain
  • text/html
  • text/calendar
  • multipart/related
  • multipart/alternative
  • multipart/mixed
  • application/x-zip-compressed
  • application/msword

When adding an attachment to the e-mail message (for instance, using Add(String) method of AttachmentCollection) and the content type is not specified, MailBee automatically determines its content type according to the file extension.

This sample loads the message from .EML file and displays the content type of each attachment.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespaces at the top of your code.
using MailBee;
using MailBee.Mime;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class)

// Load the message from file.
MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();

// For every attachment...
foreach (Attachment attach in msg.Attachments)             
    // attachment type.
    Console.WriteLine("The type is " + attach.ContentType);
