User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.4 (20031205) When I receive a message with a vCard, it displays as an attachment. That is, in the message list it has a paperclip and in viewing the message it has an attachment "user.vcf". I think that it's not functionally an attachment. It's an extra component of the message, who sent it. S/MIME signatures use smime.p7s attachments but Mozilla doesn't display those. The same should go for vCards. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. receive a message sent with a vCard Actual Results: The .vcf is displayed as an attachment. Expected Results: Omit the .vcf file from the attachments list and only display the vCard box.
Works for me in Thunderbird 0.4 (20031205) and Seonamonkey 1.7a (2003122205). The vCard always arrives as an attachment, but it can also be displayed inside the message, with an 'Add to Personal Addressbook' button next to it. The catch is that you need to have *both* 'View -> Message Bosy As -> Original HTML' and 'View -> Display attachments Inline' switched on. Otherwise it stays an attachment, and there's not yet a way to display it in Mozilla (see bug 91004). Also note bug 91004 and bug 59631 for problems recognizing vCard attachments, but they seem related to the MIME-type that needs to be set to the attachment. Mozilla uses "Content-Type: text/x-vcard", but Outlook seems to use "Content-Type: application/octet-stream" for example, which is completely wrong. See also bug 60936, because even Mozilla is slightly wrong.
Jo, I think I wasn't completely clear. I do have those options on. vCard attachments do display inline as a box with contact info. My request is that when a vCard is display as such, it not be listed again in the attachments list. Akin to how an S/MIME signature isn't listed. When I see the paperclip on a row in the message list it looks like someone attached a file. But they didn't perform the attachment, they just have their messages include a vCard.
In Thunderbird version 0.8 (20040913), I don't see the attachments at all, just the usaul card at the bottom of the mail.

It was fixed in bug 244457, but that didn't see your bug-request, because you filed it under 'Mail&News', not Thunderbird.
