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.

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.

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.  :)
