User-Agent: Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040208 I'm surprised that when forwarding a message, it gets altered significantly to include the content displaying inline as attachement, and thus rising the size of the message. Why altering when forwarding ? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: I received a text/html message from dell, no images embedded in the mail message. I open the message (allowing display of the images inline) I forward it to myself X Actual Results: I received a text/html message from dell, no images embedded in the mail message. I open the message (allowing display of the images inline) I forward it to myself I receive a message with all images attached to e-mail (but displaying properly inline) Expected Results: Receive the original message embedded into a new one note : Sending as attachement provides the 'expected' result
See bug 176416.
Looks similar apart the initial lookup for a mozilla specific tag on the image that would prevent this behavior to happen I fear that JF is considering his answer on the tag as sufficient for closing this bug, while I don't believe it justifies this behavior, nor makes it acceptable What is the reason for this behavior ? How is it explained ? is it a side effect of something else, or is it by design ?
(In reply to comment #4) > See bug 176416. OK, is a variation of this bug, but not really a duplicate How can we progress on these 2 ?!!! Is there a way to set "moz-do-not-send=true" somewhere in preferences ? nobody would edit a received message to add such an attribute on all images
It *is* a duplicate because the conversion of the links happens at the same time, same place, same code: when the message is converted to be sent. It doesn't matter whether the "http:" link text was inserted manually or as part of a forward; the entire message text is scanned, and links updated, when the message is sent. As for a fix -- there is no way yet to do what you want. See the discussion at bug 132257. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 176416 ***
