forwarded emails are "named" like the subject
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040617 Firefox/0.9 Build Identifier: User-Agent: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.7.3 (Windows/20040803) If I forward emails they get attached and named exactely like the subject. I understand that filenames should not be changed but when you take the subject of an email there is a bigger chance of mailservers bouncing mail by someone forwarding an email with a subject ending with ".com" Our "solution" was to let the user use our webmail -Squirelmail, which attaches .msg to the subject line. Other clients (mutt, outlook, outlook express) behave "correctly" too. I understand this behaviour is not perse *wrong* but a lot of mailservers out there bounce -or strip parts of, mail that carries parts with names that end with .exe, .com etc. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. forward an email which ends with .com or any other -not that I know of any top level domains that is a common executable extension too 2. send it to a destination that receives a lot of **** and uses body_checks that filter out attachments that look like suspicious filenames to take the load of the server. 3. notice that the forwarded message is removed or the message bounces. Actual Results: The mail gets bounced by servers that are a little too strict. Expected Results: Attach something like .msg to the name would be neater.
Fixing bug 220646 would solve this problem.
