I can't tell form here, but you may *never* be able to get it
to work with a binary attachment. Lots of SMTP gateways are
set up to kill those. Can you check whether you can send a
binary attachment through normal means through the same gateways
and have it come out at the receiver intact?
Another issue with binary attachments is something I have heard of
which is not even part of RFC 822 (the MIME spec, for those playing
at home). Some gateways insist on you specifying a content-length
for your message if you have a binary attachment, even though that's
an HTTP thing and not a part of the MIME spec.
