Support » Plugin: Postie » pdf attachment not authorized

  • Resolved eoik


    Ho Postie team,
    Postie works fine, it’s really great. Though it is not processing emails with .pdf attachment and i’m receiving warning emails saying :

    blablabla.pdf has an unsupported MIME type application and was not added.
    Supported types:
    ( [0] => .pdf)

    I manually added .pdf to the Supported Mime type within the Postie Settings but it did not change anything, I still get this kind of error message :

    Paul-Ardenne.pdf has an unsupported MIME type application and was not added.
    parseTemplate: couldn’t get attachment 0.

    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks in advance,

    “.pdf” is not a mime type, it is a file extension.

    Please replace “.pdf” with “application” to allow PDFs through.


    Thank you.

    Please replace my former message with this one (the former one contained to much private email addresses).

    I changed the Mime type to application/pdf
    Maybe, I should have written application, as you said.

    So I have no error message anymore, but there’s still no attachment to the post.

    Instead of the file, there’s a figure added at the beginning of the text : “1F497D’>how should the attachment be attached ?”

    Hello again,

    Please trash my two previous messages. I simply had to do what you told me !!!

    I wrote “application” and it worked perfectly fine !!

    sorry for the inconvenience.

    And thanks again,


    nb : still, there’s a figure (1F497D’>) coming at the very beginning of the post :

    1F497D’>this will work perfectly fine.
