User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Build Identifier: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/mozilla1.5a/mozilla-win32-1.5a-installer-sea.exe If i compose a message containing an background image which is stored on my local harddisc and sent it (or store it as draft) only the url is embedded and not the image data. The body tag in the html data has another format now (using style="background-image: url(localfilename)") than in version 1.4, that used the background="msgid-...." tag. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Compose message (even to oneself), no subject or text needed 2.Format/page colors and background, choose file, image is displayed in background 3.Send or save as draft 4.Open drafts folder (or freshly arrived message), select message, view/Message source 5.The body html tag has a style attribute tag that contains a background-image: url(....) . The url points to the local drive, image data is not embedded into the mail. Actual Results: The background image is not sent and therefor the message is not displayed correctly for the recipient. Expected Results: The older versions of modzilla did not use the style=".... background-image:url (xxx)" method, they used the html tag background="msg-id" and added the image- data to the message. I looked up the help files and checked my preferences. But i didnt find anything relevant to send the images together with the message. Or how to switch back to the old message style not using ccs (i assume thats where the style-attribute tag comes from ?) Including images directly into the message still works, the data is send and encoded into the message. I switched back to version 1.4, which does not have this problem.
Reporter: I believe this has been fixed in yesterdays Thunderbird build, located at <http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/nightly/2003-08-13-trunk/>. However, it seems to be a dupe of bug 116867. If you don't agree, please reopen this, stating why. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 116867 ***
