downloading IMAP message attachment stalls
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031208 I am unable to download a specific message attachment using Mail (and also using Thunderbird 20031219). All other messages download fine, but this specific one's attachment always causes the download to hang. There is nothing special about the attachment, ~80kb gzipped tar file of an Mac OS X application (I'm running winxp). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Do any action that causes this attachment to be downloaded (view, save, or move the message from the folder) Actual Results: Download stops around 425 bytes into the file, indicactor freezes. Clicking stop aborts the download, but nothing more can be received from the server until restart. Expected Results: Download the attachment. Server uses SSL (but not secure authentication). I have tried this with both Mozilla Mail, and Thunderbird, versions 0.3 till 0.5a (20031219). I am keeping this message on the server in case there is some other test that need be done. Running winxp pro sp1, on 1.2GHz PIII, 256MB RAM.
This is the log up to the point when it stalls.
From the log, it looks like the attachment is one long line, which is really poor behaviour on the part of the mail client/server. Can you send me the same message, with that same mail program (blitzmail?) to email@example.com, so I can try it?

Forwarded the mail. I can't use Thunderbird to download that message from my sent mail, so there must be something special about the attachment. My mail server seems to be sending all attachments as one long line, but outlook express has no trouble downloading the problem message, and Thunderbird works for all other messages.
make the pipe infinite, so we can handle arbitrary long lines.
