User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040714
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a2) Gecko/20040714

I do not get the white box at upper right of message viewer that shows
attachments in some messages viewed on an IMAP server. My server supports both
IMAP and pop3 modes. Same message viewed in pop3 mode is fine. It depends on
which client made the message. Messages composed with Mozilla, Outlook express,
and Bat clients are fine. Messages composed in Yahoo webmail or in mail2web do
not show the attachments. I can always see these attachments if I use mail2web
webmail, outlook express, or the bat mail clients

Note this problem exists in moz 1.6 moz 1.7 and current thunderbird as well

It might have s/t to do with the string a the client uses to mark where the
attachment begins. I have looked at this a bit but do not have anymore time

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. send mail to self from mozilla mail client- view in mozilla Imap mode- ok
2. send mail to self from yahoo webmail client- view in mozilla Imap mode- not ok
3. send mail to self from web2mail.com mail client- view in mozilla Imap mode-
not ok
4, View these messages wiht mail2web client, bat, outlook and all attachments
are available
Actual Results:  
If mail was made in yahoo webmail or in mail2web clients, I do not have the box
on the upper left that shows the attachment in Mozilla IMAP mail - ok if message
viewed with pop3 protocol

If mail was made in mozilla or the bat clients, I do have the box on the upper
left that shows the attachment

Expected Results:  
IMAP mail message viewer should have white box on upper right to show
attachments in mail generated wiht all clients

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.

I could confirm the same behaviour with 
Thunderbird 1.5b.

Please, merge this bug into #255488, it seems to be the same one.
It also depends on the IMAP server, whether the bad unexpected IMAP behaviour
occurs,
Create an account at web.de and confirm.
