From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)
BuildID:    2002020406

I received a mail with a msword attachment and the attachment can't be opened. 
When I examed the saved mail, I found that if the line 'Content-Disposition: 
inline' is deleted and forward the mail, the attachment can be opened.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce: Just try the attachment.

Actual Results:  The msword attachment can be opened normally.

Expected Results:  The msword attachment can't be opened.

Attachment <a href=
attach_id=68127>68127</a> is a email. It can be opened directly as a plain text 
or be stored with a '.eml' suffix.

You can reproduce this bug by forwarding a mail that already contains a 
msword/doc attachment.
1. send a message A with a msword/doc attachment
2 [details] [diff] [review]. receive and open message A, it'll be ok here 
3. forward message A as a attachment(or inline, never mind) to message B
4. open message B
5. then try to open message A, now message A will be opened as plain text format

QAWANTED - please help me.

Is "attachment" a keyword that I can't use in "Additional Comments:" textbox?
Why did bugzilla reform my comment 
to "" in the last

Actually, mozilla treat all the attached mail which is message/rfc822 format as 
text/plain format:

Here is a example of imap fetch command:
Put this uri in navigator will open a mail as source in that window.

If i change the type from "message/rfc822" to "application/msword", then 
mozilla will popup a download dialog that prompt it'll open the mail with 
msword. Any hint?
To attachments.  This worksforme with Linux build 2002-11-01-04.  Is this still
a problem?

This worksforme now. 

I send a mail with the same msword document to me. The 'Content-Disposition' is
still 'inline'. But the document can be opened now. I tested with mozilla 1.2b -
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021010 and
Netscape 7.0 on Win2K.
