User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20030306 Camino/0.7 When I send a message under Thunderbird 0.4 with an attachment of a Microsoft Word document, the recipient sometimes does not see the attachment. This happens to some Microsoft Word documents, but not all. If I repeat the same exercise under Thunderbird 0.3, the attachment appears to show up okay; the system may not recognize the filetype, but the attachment is always there. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose the message. 2. Use "attach" to attach a Microsoft Word document. 3. Hit "send" to send the message. Actual Results: The message gets sent. However, when the message is sent under Thunderbird 0.4, some Microsoft Word documents do not get detected as attachments when the recipients open the message. When I examine the body of the message, the Microsoft Word document is encoded, but somehow it is not recognized by the mail clients. Expected Results: The encoded Microsoft Word documents should be detected. If the same message is sent using Thunderbird 0.3, the same Microsoft Word documents are recognized by mail clients. I can provide a couple of Microsoft Word documents or the encoded messages if needed.
I can confirm this behaviour - it has stopped the use of thunderbird in our organisation until it is fixed. I tried to change the severity of this bug but was denied. I think this is a blocker.
I have created a simple Microsoft Word document that contains only 1 line: "This is a test". The first few lines of the message (with the headers removed) sent using Thunderbird 0.3 are: MIME-version: 1.0 Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary=------------060702010003080702090207 X-Accept-Language: en-us, en User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031013 Thunderbird/0.3 Original-recipient: rfc822;email@example.com This is a multi-part message in MIME format. --------------060702010003080702090207 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Test. --------------060702010003080702090207 Content-Type: multipart/appledouble; boundary="------------ad020308030607080704050801"; x-mac-type="5738424E"; x-mac-creator="4D535744"; name="Test_File.doc" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Content-Disposition: inline; filename="Test_File.doc" --------------ad020308030607080704050801 Content-Type: application/applefile Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 AAUWBwACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUAAAADAAAAVgAAAA0AAAAJAAAAYwAAACAAAAAI AAAAgwAAABAAAAAEAAAAkwAAAAAAAAACAAAAkwAAAR5UZXN0X0ZpbGUuZG9jVzhCTk1TV0QA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgAAAAAAAAAAHsYc7B7GHO0ttDAAHsYqEAAABAAAAAQAAAAAAAAAA HgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAQAAAAEAAAAAAAAAAB4AAAAAAAAAAAAcAB7/ /w== --------------ad020308030607080704050801 Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="Test_File.doc" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: inline; filename="Test_File.doc" 0M8R4KGxGuEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPgADAP7/CQAGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAIQAAAAAA AAAAEAAAIwAAAAEAAAD+////AAAAACAAAAD///////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// The first few lines of the message (with the headers removed) sent using Thunderbird 0.4 are: MIME-version: 1.0 Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary=------------080708090607000508050603 X-Accept-Language: en-us, en User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031205 Thunderbird/0.4 Original-recipient: rfc822;firstname.lastname@example.org This is a multi-part message in MIME format. --------------080708090607000508050603 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii; format=flowed Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Test. --------------080708090607000508050603 Content-Type: multipart/appledouble; boundary="------------ad020702070407000708030205"; x-mac-type="5738424E"; x-mac-creator="4D535744"; name="Test_File.doc" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: inline; filename="Test_File.doc" LS0tLS0tLS0tLS0tLS1hZDAyMDcwMjA3MDQwNzAwMDcwODAzMDIwNQ0KQ29udGVudC1UeXBl OiBhcHBsaWNhdGlvbi9hcHBsZWZpbGUKQ29udGVudC1UcmFuc2Zlci1FbmNvZGluZzogYmFz ZTY0CgpBQVVXQndBQ0FBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBQUFBVUFBQUFEQUFBQVZnQUFB It looks like some of the parameters or keywords (not sure what they are called since I am not an MIME expert) are missing using Thunderbird 0.4.
Related to Bug #229855, Bug #229879 ? I'm curious to see if I fixed this in the upcoming 0.5 release which is coming out in a couple days.

Seems to be caused by patch of Bug 229855. It seems to have stopped application/applefile part creation in multipart/appledouble, and seems to have also stopped boundary data creation for following data folk part. I think whole appledouble part creation should be inhibited if resource folk is not required.
WADA: I wasn't clear from your comment, are you saying the patch that went in for Bug 229855 yesterday is causing more problems than it is solving or it is ok? Need to know ASAP if that needs backed out of the 0.5 branch.
Change by attachment 140754 [details] [diff] [review] by Bug 229855 Comment #9 looks to stop applefile part creation in the multipart/appledouble creation block when MS Word file. So, if and only if the latter mail data in Comment #2 was the result of this patch, your patch could be the cause of Comment #2, I thought. However, the mail data in Comment #2 looks to be created by older Thunderbird. > User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.6b) > Gecko/20031205 Thunderbird/0.4is Gecko/20031205 Thunderbird/0.4 Your patch can not be included in 20031205 build. As I said in Bug 229879 Comment #3, invalid appledouble mail creation problem has already resolved by newer builds, I think. Can someone test with Thunderbird just before fix for Bug 229855 and after fix for Bug 229855?
I just installed Thunderbird 0.5b (build 20040204). The problem with Microsoft Word document attachment seems to have gone away.

I encountered this problem using Thunderbird 0.5 under Widnows. Today I updated to Thunderbird 0.7 (20040616), and the problem remained, i.e., attached Word documents are sent as multipart/appledouble. I found the problem in the google groups archive (the thread around message id <4093D86D.email@example.com>, in German). As mentioned in this thread, I deleted my profiles directory and recreated the account, and now it seems to work fine.
