If you compose a mail in Outlook, attach a GIF image, and leave the body field of the mail empty you'll end up with mail structure that has no body but only an attachment as described in http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19529 But this GIF image is not shown inline in Mozilla. If I attach a GIF image and write something in the body, the GIF image is shown inline! Shown't it be showned inline in both cases since it's a GIF image?

Yes it would show if the Content-Disposition was "inline", but when outlook sends these mail messages, they set the Content-Disposition to "attachment". We respect these settings and do the right thing. I really don't think this is the way you should send an attached image file. I believe it should be a multipart mixed, but Outlook seems to do this. - rhp
Verified as invalid. I viewed a message sent from Outlook and verified that the content-disposition is "attachment" instead of "inline". Seamonkey displays the gif file as an attachment. This is the same behavior in Communicator 4.7 ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/windows/32bit/x86/1999-12-17-13-M12/seamonkey32e.exe ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/unix/linux_glibc/2.2/x86/1999-12-17-10-M12/netscape-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/macos/8.x/ppc/1999-12-17-10-M12/NSMacInstaller-M12.sea.bin
