User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 E-mails received with file: links to local text files (and I presume any other kind of file) on a network don't open from the mail reader. Right-clicking and using "Copy Link Location" and then pasting it into the URL bar in a Browser window does work. If it works in the Browser, then the link should also work in the Mail reader. In Mozilla 1.4 (I think), it used to sometimes work by right-clicking and choosing "Open Link in new Tab", however this is no longer true. I've read bug report 132257, but this is different. The e-mails are automatically generated by our automated build system (with sendmail so it bypasses Mozilla altogether to send the e-mail) to send the link to the build log files which are several megabyes in size. Embedding the log file is not an option. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Use the Mail Composer to insert a link to a network file. The file should be a plain Text file and the link path should be a UNC path. 2. Use the Advanced Options to set the moz-do-not-send attribute to true (to avoid embedding the file). 3. Assuming there is a PC on the network called BuilderPC, the HTML code for the link would look like the following: <a moz-do-not-send="true" href="file://///BuilderPC/C/BuildLogs/afternoon_build2004_Mar_04_05_54_PM_EST.log">Build Report</a><br> In fact, you could copy and paste this using the Insert->HTML... menu item and simply edit the file path. 4. Send the mail to yourself. Actual Results: Clicking on the link to the file does nothing. Copying the link address and pasting it into a Browser's address bar loads the file successfully. Expected Results: Should open the text file a new window (or Tab if "Open Link in new Tab") was selected.
