bug tracking feature in Summary.
What is this feature used for?
This feature isn't anything you'd see differently in the UI, it just simplifies mailnews back end code. our mailnews rfc822 --> htmlm converter needs to support a stream converter interface that necko provides. When you load documents into a window, the layout engine will go to the necko stream converter service and ask it for a stream converter that knows how to converter rfc822 to html. The necko service will return our stream converter to layout and the conversion will happen. Right now we are doing this by hand and it is forcing us to write the message into a temp file before we can load it into a window. In short, think of this as an architecture change and not a feature.

I'm just about done with converting mime to use Jud's stream converter interface in addition to integrating with his stream converter service. I have local mail running using all these new goodies (this meant I was able to remove the tempMessage.eml hack for local message display).
I've finished checking in the changes to mailnews\mime such that our stream converter supports the nsIStreamConverter interface that Jud put in the tree. We also register ourselves now with his stream converter service with an appropriate prog id so we can be invoked by the stream converter service. Marking this bug as fixed. I'm tempted to mark it verified too since I'm not really sure how QA can verify this architectue change.
Scott, QA has no resource to verify this bug. Can I have your approval to just mark it Verified or please advise. Thanks, Fenella
marking as verified.
