Posting multipart data is VERY different than posting TStringList data.  The
HTTP request is formatted very differently.  Are you sure you are handling
the data properly on the server side to begin with?

Then the problem is likely in your server script.  TIdHTTP requests are
completely separate from each other.  They have no effect on each other.
Just to be sure, though, have you tried clearing the TIdHTTP.Request
property before calling Post()?
