When I try to open it, either by double-clicking on its name in the "Attachments:" box or by right-clicking and selecting "Open", nothing happens. However, "Save As" works normally, giving a file selector box with the proper name filled in. This same attachment opens fine under Mozilla 1.3a. This same attachment opens fine if the email message is copied to a mailbox in Local Folders. This same attachment opens fine from the IMAP mailbox if I first go into the mailbox with a text editor and remove the # from the file name, both in the Content-Type and Content-Disposition lines. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Read IMAP mail message with attachment containing "#" in file name. Name of attachment shows in Attachments box. 2.Double-click on name, or right-click and select open. 3. Actual Results: Nothing happens. Expected Results: Should have opened a dialog box asking what to do with this file. Here is the Mime header to the attachment in question: Content-Id: <email@example.com.0.0> Content-Type: application/msword; name="Reading_List_Unit_#3.doc" ; x-mac-type="5738424E" ; x-mac-creator="4D535744" Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Reading_List_Unit_#3.doc" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
I think this was fixed a while ago - could you try a more recent build?
I tried it in Mozilla 1.6. It works fine now.
Bug/patch that fix this unidentified. ->WORKSFORME
