From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1a+) Gecko/20020709
BuildID:    2002070908

Someone sends me an HTML file attached to a message. Mozilla mail renders it
inline, below a horizontal rule. That's usually pretty cool. However, when I hit
reply, Mozilla includes that attachment in my reply, quoted and everything. 

There should be an option to either prevent Mozilla from rendering attachments
inline or to prevent it from including attachments in the quoted reply text.
IIRC, there is a way to stop it from displaying inline attachments, but I think
it's just a JS pref for now, no GUI for it.. Can anybody confirm this ?

I'm confirming this.

I am however unsure if this is a dupe of bug 118962

The option to display inlined content has been present for some time in
Thunderbird and Mozilla mail and accessible via the GUI (View -> Display
Attachments Inline).

When forwarding a message like this, the attachments are preserved as
attachments and not included in the body of the forwarded messages (at least on
Tbird 1.0.7 from the Debian packages)
sorry for the spam.  making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs.  filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.
