GET method works fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Send a HTML email containing something similar to the following: <form action="http://myhost/testing" method="post"><input name="Blah" type="text"><input value="test submit" type="submit"></form> 2. Open the email in ThunderBird 3. Type something in the text box and submit Actual Results: When ThunderBird opens the Browser, the browser actually does a GET not a POST hence all POST values are lost. Expected Results: POSTed data - unless of course there is no way of doing this when initiating the browser connection from ThunderBird. Note that Mozilla Mail seems to work fine - it just seems to be ThunderBird.
I doubt it is possible to transfer POST data to an external browser but maybe someone with more technical knowledge can give a definite answer?
I have been having the same problem. This comes up for me when I try to reply to a comment on LiveJournal. Comments are sent to me ("Reply to your comment" or "Reply to your post") with an option to send a further reply. The form (method="post") includes a text area and a "Post Reply" button. In Mozilla Mail, clicking the button opens a browser window and posts the message. In Thunderbird, it opens the browser, but LiveJournal gives this response: " Comment not posted: POST required, or missing parameter."
