I was running my tests under IMAP. I will attach a sample file. Steps to Reproduce: 0) Deleted my mozregistry and previous user profile 1) In a dos prompt, run mozilla -mail The new profile wizard should appear 2) Enter a profile name and press the finish button Messenger should open and the mail/new set up wizard should appear 3) Go through the wizard and configure for imap mail 4) Log into IMAP mail 5) Start a new message 6) Address it to yourself or test account 7) type in a short subject title 8) enter in a short bit of text 9) Click on the attach button on the toolbar 10) Select the attachment 11 [details]) Click on the send button 12) From communicator 4.x, retrieve the message and view it The attachment is corrupted. Actual Results: The message is partially displayed or displays as a broken link. If I save the image and view it in the communicator browser, it displays the same sort of corruption. Expected Results: It should send the jpeg/gif file intact without data corruption. Additional Builds and Platforms Tested On: This problem also occurs on today Win32 commercial build 1999-10-22-09-m11 Additional Information: When I view a seamonkey message sent from Mac on my Sun Ultra 1 (solaris 2.6) running Communicator 4.7 RTM, it crashes the application.

I should also mention that if I view a mesasge that contains an attachment sent from 5.0 and viewed 5.0, the jpeg/gif is corrupted; it displaying a partial image or it displays a link. I nominate this for dogfood consideration.
I think rhp is a better owner for this
