Currently we only have forward as quoted. We need Forward as attachment and Forward inline. Does this just need to be done in the front end or is the backend missing as well? Currently it always shows up quoted no matter which menu item I choose.

reassigning to jefft. It was suggested that jeff might be able to help rhp out with this. If this is not ok, let me know. Setting target M11.
Jeff, We should sit down and talk about how the compose back end has been reorganized and how quoting, etc... all works. I will be out in Mountain View the next two weeks starting Monday. - rhp
Sure. I'll be out of the week of August 15th.
I have pretty good idea what needs to done here. Unfortunately, I don't think I can make it for today's deadline. It would be too scarry if I try to squeez things in.

Code checked in. Same as 4.x the default behavior of forwarding message is control by "mail.forward_message_mode" pref. 0 = forward as attachment, 1 = forward as inline. The difference in between 4.x and 5.0 is we don't have forward as quoted any more.

Verified as fixed on win32, linux, and macos. The builds that I used to verify this bug can be found at: ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/windows/32bit/x86/1999-11-05-09-M11/bac kup/install.exe ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/unix/linux_glibc/2.2/x86/1999-11-05-08- M11/netscape-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/macos/8.x/ppc/1999-11-05-08-M11/netscap e5-mac-M11.sea.bin When verifying this bug, I checked for - when starting forward as inline message, the message is quoted and the attachment area is empty or show the list of attached binary files - the sent forward as attachment message, the message is not quoted and the attachment area shows the path to the mail message - when the forward as inline message is received, a forward inline message should not have any attachment unless the had binary attachment denoted with an attachment icon. - when the forward as attachmen message is received, it has a attachment icon in the header. Jeff, I did not have to manually modify my prefs.js file. The forward as inline and forward as attachments under the Message menu are hooked up. :)
