Hmmm. I'm having a hard time finding a windows media audio file to attach to a
message to be sent to my yahoo account. I did send a email to my account with a
.swf attachment.

Based on the the bug's description, I'm able to view my list of inbox messages.
Clicking on the attachment link opens and displays the message. Now the
attachment icon is displayed below the message body. Clicking on the attachment
icon opens to  scan results page which contains Download file link.

If I single click on this link, it loads the .swf directly. If I control -click
and select Download Link Target, I get the save dialog. In both cases, I was
able to save and open the .swf properly.

Now, I just need to try this with a .wma file. Tested under 2002-11-07-04 under

Reproduced using both FizzillaCFM/2002110808 and Chimera/2002110804 on 10.1.5 to
download the attached test file. I think this is happening because we're trying
to use the WM plug-in, which fails due to bug 119045.

I changed the handling of the MIME type in IE to open with the WM application
rather than the plug-in, though, and the problem remains after restarting Chimera.

when i try that link, it opens windows media player which can't play it either
(bad playlist format).

either this is a dupe of 119045, or wfm? what does everyone else think?

I'd recommend WFM if the link is being directed to Windows Media Player.
