In my Thunderbird preferences, composition section, I've selected "Forward messages: Inline". Normally this work fine, but in some messages (only some messages) the forward is in attachment mode. When it doesn't work, I select the menú option Message > Forward as > Inline, but it doesn't work neither: the forwarded message as an attachment. Inline forwarding is good in some cases: it allows to edit the message to hide email addresses from spamers (specially when the recipient is a public mailing list). Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Work normally with the "Forward messages: Inline" preference 2. Try to forward messages 3. Some messages don't forward inline, are attachments and is not possible to change 4. I can send one of this messages... but as attachment :)
Note: Thunderbird 0.1 (20030723)
I can always reproduce this bug using the "Steps to Reproduce" detailed in... http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=239698
This issue present with Thunderbird 0.8-Jul28 (2004) posted on forum by MScott: See my following post: Forward-Inline behavior appears to be broken. With Tbird 0.7, 'forward-inline' would generate a new msg with header details in TABLE form followed by msg body. Any attachments on forwarded msg would appears in attachment field. The correct behavior of 'forward-inline' with 0.8-Jul28 build seems to depend of presense of attachment, # attachments, text/html, etc. If msg being forwarded inlcudes NO attachment, the newly created msg is correct (ie. header info in table). If the msg being forwarded inline includes text with reply text in body (ie. indented, etc), then newly created msg in NOT correct (ie. no header info in table exists). If msg being forwarded includes attachments, the newly created msg does NOT include previous header details in table. I'm attempting to figure the exact cause -- but it's not difficult to observe. This appears to be http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=215265 Why was this non-existant in 0.7 and now back with 0.8?? -G
The original report sounds very similar to bug 238638, which was duped to bug 65159: Some messages (in particular, from the Apple Mail client) have a text/enriched portion (which looks a little like HTML when displayed). These parts can be viewed as the main message body, but Moz/TB do not support editing text/enriched; so when the forward-inline is activated, the part becomes an attachment. To check this: while viewing the questionable message, select View | Message Body As | Plain Text and then try forwarding -- this should work just fine. You can also View|Source for the message and search for a header line: Content-Type: text/enriched [...] Benjami Villoslada, if that proves to be true, please mark this bug as a duplicate of 65159. GA's Comment 3 sounds like a very different problem, specifically bug 250291. That has been fixed, in both Mozilla and TB, and should not be visible in current nightlies. Carl's problem as described in bug 239698 may have a symptom that appears similar, but I believe it is a different issue.
No response from reporter, duping. Benjami Villoslada, if you believe the dupe is in error, feel free to reopen this bug and explain why. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 65159 ***
