    I am writing a bit that would take a file automatically and attach it to an email ready to go.
    The thing is the attachment is an Applescript application and Entourage always compresses the attachment.

    I have changed the preferences, even specified in my code to not compress, to no avail:

    	set theMessage to make new outgoing message with properties {subject:("subject"), attachment:myAttach, content:myContent, compression type:no compression}
    Does anyone have any idea how to go around this problem? I need the attached applescript to be sent uncompressed so that the recipient only has to double click the Script Application FROM THE EMAIL to launch it.

    Thank you for any help!

    Ok - no answer, but I was able to figure out how to attach a file automatically without having Entourage to compress it.

    The problem is: when the email is sent, it compresses it automatically no mater what.
