This entity represents an attachment to an e-mail message.

An attached file can be any standard file format. This includes Microsoft Word documents, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, CAD files, and PDF files. An attachment can be associated with any object (other than a note) in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

To upload or remove an attachment, use the Update method, setting the filename and mimetype properties. This uploads an attachment that has been decoded into a base64 string format. The System.Convert.ToBase64String method can be used to convert the contents of a data file into base64 formatted string. There is a maximum file size limit on the uploaded file data. That limit is defined in the system registry.
