Text attachments should be received as attachment by default
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040514 Build Identifier: Version 0.6 (20040502) For some strange reason, text attachments are received inline (and not as attachment) by some clients. It is clearly a TB problem because when the same files are sent with another client, the same recepients receive them as attachments. However, thunderbird receives them as attachments. This is particularly annoying when sending for example latex files, which are clearly separate documents that are meant to be saved and compiled, and not to be read inline. See long discussion at the end of thread http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=536030 in the support forum where a fix is suggested by hacking prefs.js, but clearly this should not be the default behavior. Filing therefore as a bug and not as a feature request. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Send a text attachment from a default installation to a recepient using Eudora (or most mail clients) Actual Results: Get a complaint from recepient that the file was sent inline
Presumably that "hack" is the same thing found at bug 65794 comment 19. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 65794 ***
