User-Agent: Build Identifier: Microsoft Word documents sent as attachments from Thunderbird 0.4 on a Windows 98 machine cannot be read by the intended recipient as the attachment does not appear. Viewing the source of the received message reveals that the document is sent but it seems to be incorrectly encoded as "Content-Type: multipart/appledouble;" The Word documents used to find this bug were created using Word 2000 on the Windows 98 machine. The recipient was using Thunderbird 0.4 on a Windows 2000 machine. This bug is similar to 232917, however that was only reported for OS X. The same problem occurs under Windows 98 (but not Windows 2000) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a new email by pressing the "Write" button 2. Add recipient's address to "To" field and add a subject line 3. Press the "Attach" button and select a Microsoft Word document to attach 4. Once the document is attached, send the email by pressing "Send" Actual Results: The recipient received the sent email and the body of the email appeared correctly but the attached Word document was not displayed. By opening the email and typing "Ctrl-U" to view the mail source the document was found to be encoded as Content-Type: multipart/appledouble Expected Results: The Word attachment should have appeared in the attachments box when the email was opened.
