Hi botaxsmaniz,

 

From what I understand from your posts, you are attempting to email a "cod" as an attachment to a BlackBerry and have the user download the attachment and have it install.  Is this correct?

 

If this is the case, it is not possible to install an application in this manner.

Re: Application attachment handling problems

The easiest way to email your application to someone else is to email them a URL to an installation JAD file.  The tooling should create a JAD file for you that you can host on any web server.  You then basically email the URL to the hosted JAD file and when the user clicks on the link the install process will begin

 

 

Some information on setting up your web server with the proper mime types can be found here:
