Description

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.

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
