Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a Mail in HTML Mode. 2. Enter a file://path URL (as plain text, not as a link). The path must refer to an existing file. 3. Send the Mail to yourself as HTML (do not store it in Drafts folder). 4. Edit the received Message as New, do not edit anything. 5. Send the Mail to yourself as HTML. Actual Results: Step 3: Mail contains auto-converted link: href="file://path", class="moz-txt-link-freetext". Step 5: Mail contains the file contents as an attachment and the link converted accordingly: href="<cid:part1....>", class="moz-txt-link-freetext". Link text is still unchanged: "file:\\path". Expected Results: Both Mails should be identical. Auto-converted links (class="moz-txt-link-freetext") should never be converted to attachments. The same effect occurs if the mail is simply stored to Drafts folder in Steps 3 and 5.
This is possibly another interesting result of this bug:-) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a Mail in HTML Mode. 2. Enter a file://path URL as a link (text and href identical). The File must exist. 3. Send the Mail to yourself as TEXT. Actual Results: Mail contains the URL followed by a link to an attachment, e.g. "file:://path <cid:part1....>" But the attachment "cid:part1..." does not exist. Expected Results: Mail should only contain the URL (or attachment should exist).
Confirming. Can reproduce this in a simple way: 1. Create HTML-Mail 2. "Insert - Link" via menu 3. type "text to display ..." 4. choose file 5. send mail, regardless of plain/html 6. recipient gets mail with attachment File will not be attached when "text to display ..." is empty.
Confirming; I see this with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040422 See bug 241573. The symptoms in comment 1 are valid but are not really the same as the original report. The results you and Peter Bauer report can also be seen by simply dragging a non-image file into the body of the HTML message. See bug 241291 for a discussion of the various issues.

(In reply to comment #1) > Actual Results: > Mail contains the URL followed by a link to an attachment, e.g. > "file:://path <cid:part1....>" > But the attachment "cid:part1..." does not exist. That's bug 180997. Sorry to be finding this so late, but this bug is a dupe; there is a bit of a patch there, but it's not clear that it's going anywhere. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 132257 ***
